Combine Elder Care with Child Care

Multi-use building that holds Elder daycare facilities that are connected to Child daycare facilities. Another bonus if it is located near an elementary school so after-school activities can take place there. The seniors in the daycare center benefit from being around children and can help with activities, and the children have the added benefit of more adult interactions and a sense of community. Cost of operations will benefit from combined site/staff (i.e. meals, supervision, etc.)

+ the potential of integrating high school students with an aptitude towards child care?  Maybe a course could include volunteering within the child care centre for credit?  Hands on skill building, add to the resume, network in the ECE community, potential job connections following graduation?
