Saskatchewan's first intergenerational Child Care Centre is located at Sherbrooke Community Centre. The Oak Trees and Acorns experience provides a unique opportunity for children to grow and develop through interaction with elders and individuals with disabilities.
Oak Trees and Acorns Child Care Centre is operated by a Board of Directors. The Centre is licensed by the Government of Saskatchewan through the Day Care Branch for 36 child care spaces. The spaces are designated for 6 infants, 10 toddlers and 20 preschool children. The spaces are open to the community, the local high school and staff of Sherbrooke Community Centre. Qualified early childhood educators staff the Centre.
Developmentally appropriate programs and intergenerational opportunities are provided in Sherbrooke's enriched environment. The children are integrally involved with various aspects of life at Sherbrooke and benefit from the Eden Alternative™ philosophy. Children are involved in gardening, reading and visiting with residents and community day program participants. The children bring spontaneity and companionship and many pleasurable moments to the residents and staff at Sherbrooke.
