A New Chapter in Learning Across Generations
Hubbard Hill was born out of the desire of its founders to be a loving, healthy community that would encourage friendships, provide holistic care, and foster a more vibrant life for their parents. In short, it was conceived of as a better way of living for senior adults. Over 40 years on, Hubbard Hill has achieved that goal… and so much more.
Today, as a pioneer in building a community of living wisdom, we dream of a new frontier for Hubbard Hill, a place where children can receive high-scope early learning experiences enhanced with unique opportunities for intergenerational learning. Our bold goal is to build and open the new Early Learning Center at Hubbard Hill by Fall 2022, and integrate the school’s proven curriculum, students, and teaching staff into the Hubbard Hill community.
When Granger Community Church made the decision to discontinue their operation of the widely respected and nationally acclaimed Early Learning Center, we saw the potential to bring that center to the Hubbard Hill campus and enhance it by creating intergenerational learning programming that embodies our values of community, spiritual development, learning, people, and innovation.
Investing in the Future
We invite our friends and neighbors to join us in this effort by investing in the truly groundbreaking Early Learning Center at Hubbard Hill. With your help, we can establish the new exemplar for community intergenerational experiences and strengthen the opportunities to cultivate the living wisdom of our populations, for today and for the future.

The Value of Intergenerational Learning
Hubbard Hill’s focus on intergenerational programming is based in institutional research. In fact, the 2018 Eisner Foundation/Generations United study suggests that 92% of Americans believe intergenerational activities can help reduce loneliness across age groups. A key component of our learning is to integrate various populations, such as older adults and children, which is a better way to sustain societal connections and quality of life.
