New Zealand Premiere

Sundays from 17 November 7.30pm Channel 006

A 3-month experiment is about to start at one of the largest retirement villages in the UK – Lark Hill, on the outskirts of Nottingham – in a specially built nursery where the classmates ages range from just 3 to 102.  Inspired by Season 1’s experiment in Bristol, the pensioners this time are much older, and the nursery will run for twice as long, stretching the older group’s stamina with excursions, dancing and a daily timetable of nursery activities.

Is an experiment this length sustainable and can significant results inspire long-term solutions in older care?  Led by a team of geriatric specialists measuring the impact of preschoolers on the mood, memory and mobility of the older group, the team will also include a child development specialist.  For the first time, the children will also be assessed to see what happens to their emotional and social development, as well as language skills, if their classmates are almost a century older.
