St. John's on the Lake is our most established partnership and Eastcastle is our newest inter-generational playgroup spot! The playgroups we host give children a true inter-generational experience while learning patience, kindness, and how to make new friends. Our friends at Saint John's and Eastcastle benefit tremendously from the interaction with our children. It's a win-win!
PURPOSE: To give an opportunity to children, parents, and assisted living residents to interact and play with each other in a relaxed, friendly, playful, organized environment. (Promise, our organization and structure only enhances the fun!)
