GRANDY PROGRAM “老吾老以及人之老,幼吾幼以及人之幼”

RESPECTING ELDERS GROWING CHILDREN

Celebrating the elder members of our communities and respecting their ages, life experience and leadership are essential values inherent in the traditional Chinese culture. These cultural underpinnings are grounded in the remembrance of things past (时光似水年华). A family without the influence and guidance of a grandmother and a grandfather is considered less than half of a family. Goodrose daycare services are accordingly being developed into a family playroom program in which elders are an essential component and where they are passionately respected and needed.

 

To support our mission of respecting and celebrating the elder members of our community, we are providing elder individuals the opportunity to participate in the Goodrose Grandy Program.
