Visit Our New Blog!

We have been busy working on a brand new website at Generation Solutions! We are very excited to let you know that our blog will now be moving to a new and improved website!

To visit our new blog, just click here: Generation Community Blog

We didn't change anything too drastically, but we were able to make some improvements that we think you will benefit from as you "surf" around the site. Best of all, the blog is now located "back home" with the main Generation Solutions' website, so you will not have to remember two different website addresses. And after all, there's no place like home!

Grandparent's Day at Elizabeth Early Learning Center

In honor of Grandparent's Day, Generation Solutions sponsored a celebration at Elizabeth Early Learning Center. Grandparents were invited to join their grandchildren for a day of festivities including a picnic lunch and musical entertainment-- provided by the children themselves, along with a few songs from Generation Solutions very own "Dorothy". There were even some crazy shaped balloons to add to the excitement! Tulane Patterson shared a poem and photographs were taken of each child and grandparent and later framed and gifted. Everyone is already looking forward to next years Grandparent's Day Celebration!
