75 years

Visitors are sometimes surprised to see children at Jennings and find out that we established The Learning Circle infant and child care on the campus. The seed was planted decades ago when we realized how much joy children can bring. With a small daily preschool (as shown here) in the 90s, we began #intergenerational activities. What a hit!

Jennings continues daily intergenerational activities today, with children participating in our child care as well as student groups of all ages from local schools and community groups.
