I think it is a great idea that a kingarten in a nursing house. As the elders will be happy and energetic again. They are willing to play stupid games with children. And usually the elders will be patient and they have a good knowledge. And the children will have the sympathy. They will be much more understanding and helpful.

I think this is a good idea. I worked as an activity coordinator in a nursing home for a while and events with children were always fun. Children's games are not stupid though.

Quite similar with me. I have some experiences teaching children and even toddler in a kindergarten school, and it's terrific and lot of fun.

Some parents may think that the children's games are very childish and therefore they may not want to spend time to play with them. And the elders are different. They have enough spare time and patience.

@youless No, children games are not boring. They are educative, and good for the elders for refreshing and they also can make them more patient.

That's really great idea. I was a teacher in a kindergarten school few years ago, and i really enjoyed being around the children and toddler.

The kids would learn a lot from the older people and it will keep everyone learning.

It will be beneficial for both sides.

In Sweden, the high school students can rend a room for free in a nursing house, if they spend at least a couple of hours a day interacting with the elders. I think that it's also a great idea, may be even better than a kindergarten. Too young kids can sometimes become a problem.

Yes. Especially the elders will find their lives much more meaningful.

That is indeed a good idea but I don't think the games they played are stupid.

I think I must change that word to "childish"
