As part of our integrated program at Orchard Pre-school, we have been visiting Cherry Orchard House on a weekly basis to see the residents. Unfortunately, we have not been able to visit during the current coronavirus pandemic.
In the past, we have taken different activities with us from colouring, to play dough. The children loved going to see the residents and have created a real bond with some of them. For the residents, it gives them chance to interact with young people regularly and provides them opportunities to stay active and provides a boost to their mental well-being.
