Project Smile was founded in September 2018 in partnership with Langwith Lodge Residential Home.
Inspired by Channel 4s ' Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds', series, we wondered what our youngest children could learn from our oldest village residents and equally, what could our children give back in return.
The project is now in its second year and the experiences and learning opportunities it provides for all is absolutely priceless.
We have laughed lots, shared stories, taught our friends new skills and learnt new skills on the way, learnt to appreciate what we have, learnt how very different our friends' childhoods were, learnt to be patient and kind and improved our listening and speaking skills.
We have been: teachers, listeners, storytellers, mess makers, dancers, artists, board game whizzes, gardeners, singers, joke tellers and best friends.....
We light up the room every Monday morning and every Monday morning we make more happy memories.
