Intergenerational Children’s Center – Now Enrolling

We believe that intergenerational relationships, such as the bond created between grandparents and grandchildren, are an essential part of life. Our hours of operation are 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. To schedule a tours of the center, please call (206) 281-5786.

Infant Program

Our Infant Program is designed for babies ages 3 months through 15/16 months. The staff child ratio is 1:3 with a maximum class size of 8. The infants and their teachers enjoy a bright, light filled space that includes a sleeping room, a play area, a dining area and an area for gross motor development. Primary caregivers meet the unique needs of each individual infant, supporting and encouraging their development with warm and nurturing care.

Toddler Program

Our Toddler Program is designed for toddlers ages 15/16 months to 2.5 / 3 years. The staff child ratio is 1:6 with a maximum class size of 14. Our environment for very young children gives your toddler the freedom to safely explore and learn through discovery. The setting is calm, inviting, and homelike, with soft rugs, a rocking chair, books arrayed on low shelves and toys in baskets. Colors are muted, the atmosphere peaceful. The children enjoy weekly outings to sing, dance, and play with Bayview residents.

Preschool & Pre-K Program

Our Preschool / Pre-K Program is a mixed age group of children ages 2.5 years through 5. The staff child ratio is 1:8 with a maximum class size of 20. The classroom is designed to be enticing and stimulating. We focus on each individual student and the space itself. Our classroom is broken up into five learning areas, creating a place where children have a sense of freedom and enhance their independent learning, self-discipline, and exploration skills. The children enjoy the rich relationships and collaborations with the elder residents with bi-weekly visits and outings throughout Bayview.


We believe that intergenerational relationships, such as the bond created between grandparents and grandchildren, are an essential part of life. For children, it provides connection with the past and opportunity to grow and learn from their elders. For seniors, it fosters a vital sense of meaning, contribution and connection to the next generation.


Our approach to early childhood education employs an interconnected web of educational practices grounded in the innate curiosity, competence, and enthusiasm children have for learning. Accompanied by their teacher, children participate in planned and spontaneous activities throughout the campus with Bayview residents. Through these daily interactions, the children and the residents create meaningful connections between generations, which helps to foster positive attitudes and understanding towards both seniors and people with disabilities. As children interact on a daily basis with their extended family of “grandmas and the grandpas,” they bring joy and receive genuine appreciation in return.


With four dedicated classrooms, our center serves 44 children, ages three months to five years old. We have a spacious indoor play area, a secured outdoor playground, which includes riding toys, coupe cars and helmets. Teachers serve as facilitators and coaches to guide children to meet their developmental milestones.
