“No matter the age of the person, participation in everyday life develops a feeling of worthiness"
– Silvia Montanaro
Worldwide, for the first time in history, people 65 years and older outnumber children. By 2030, 1 in every 5 Americans will be over 65 years of age.
Montessori Intergenerational Learning Communities (MILC)
provides Montessori Early Childhood education for children combined with community day services for aging adults, including those with Dementia.
MILC serves as a community hub for people navigating both ends of the age continuum, providing education and support for both families with young children and for those caring for an aging adult at home.
To create intentional, intergenerational Montessori learning communities where children and aging adults,
including those with memory loss, can work side by side, building a
new paradigm between the generations.
A world where purposeful engagement and relationships between young children and aging adults,
including those with memory loss, is commonplace.
MILC believes that participation in everyday life, no matter the age of the individual participating,
develops a feeling of worthiness in a person when called upon to share in it in an active way.
“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
