An Introduction to the Adult Day Care Program at Seagull Schools, Ewa, Hawaii

An adult day care program provides seniors with the unique experience of interacting with children on a daily basis. Sometimes known as an intergenerational program, early education centers invite the elderly to participate in activities with kids of all ages. The result is an ever-changing community that benefits both parties by promoting physical and psychological well-being.

What to Expect From an Adult Day Care Program

Well-Trained Staff

The key to a successful adult day care program is a well-trained staff that knows how to facilitate conversation between children and elders. Experienced instructors that understand early childhood development, for example, can foster a positive learning environment for children, while also catering to the needs of the adults.

Structured Activities

adult day careIntergenerational programs, when executed successfully, resemble small villages rather than your average day care center. Preschool-aged children are encouraged to interact with their elders by engaging in a variety of structured activities and spontaneous casual conversations. This ensures that both parties are given opportunities to practice social skills and keep an active, healthy mind.

Field Trips

An adult day care program not only takes place at an early childhood center. Instead, excursions to nearby malls and parks give everyone an opportunity to learn about new places and see the outside world. Seniors are provided with opportunities for social, mental, and emotional stimulation, and children get to take advantage of a field trip experience. When paired with a well-planned preschool curriculum, adult day care programs benefit everyone involved to build a community that lasts a lifetime.

 

The adult day care program at Seagull School Adult Day Center is located in the Kapolei business district adjacent to the Kapolei Regional Park. To take a tour of their beautiful grounds and speak with the director of their intergenerational program, call (808) 533-0004 or visit them online for an overview of their offerings.
