Local kids entertain residents at Ashley Pointe
Kids Way students sing for residents at Ashley Pointe.
Ashley Pointe residents were all smiles on Friday, February 28 when preschoolers from Kids Way Preschool shared their time and talents with them.
The kids, ages three to five years old, sang three songs to the residents and then joined them for coloring, bead making and storybook reading.
"This is a joint venture between Kids Way, EvCC small group communications, and Ashley Pointe," Kids Way Kids owner Kymm Shipman said "I felt it was a great example of the hometown feel of Lake Stevens and the connection to higher education, children and the elderly."
The event was entitled 'Young It Up!'
"The director of Ashley Pointe was delighted to have us and shared with us that they have a term for children's effect on their residents...it youngs them up; in other words they have brighter eyes and a spring in their step for the rest of the day. Thus, we have named our event, "Young-it-up!"
