Nightingale House in South London is to become the first care home in the UK to run its own nursery.
The Apples and Honey nursery, which opens in September, will offer activities to bring the young and old together.
Judith Ish-Horowicz, co-founder of Apples and Honey Nightingale, said: “This truly is a ‘dream come true!’ After all the years of planning, we are excited that we can now develop a joint programme of activities for the children and our friends at Nightingale on a daily basis, watching the relationships grow and learning with and from each other.”
An open day launch event for the site was attended by more than 300 people, including the Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Jim Madden.
Helen Simmons, Chief Executive at Nightingale Hammerson, said: “The family open day was a huge success – we had an excellent turn out and everyone had a great day meeting residents and seeing the new nursery building.
“We are looking forward to taking the existing intergenerational work we do to a new level in September when the nursery opens.”
