Intergenerational programs provide learning opportunities, care and social support for children and older people in the same setting, at the same time. These can benefit wellbeing across generations as children and older adults interact and exchange knowledge and skills.

This Research in Practice Series book explains how educators can successfully plan and implement an intergenerational program in their setting. It uses case studies from a multidisciplinary research project to showcase the practical aspects of such programs and highlights why it’s important for children to have a say in their involvement in intergenerational programs.

The book also discusses how an effective intergenerational program uses a learning pedagogy that draws on the understanding around early learning and play, neuroscience and community development.
