Hoover Intergenerational Care, Inc. (HIC) is an intergenerational educational center that serves the Los Angeles area. HIC also employs senior citizens and volunteers among other age groups in a pre-school environment.


This program was developed to assist the working parent by providing their children with a quality program.

The program recognizes the importance of early child education and development. HIC encourages positive attitudes toward learning, self-awareness and motivation.

The program strives to provide quality education, encouraging introduction to school, and the learning process.  The staff works on developing children’s perception, thinking and language skills in a group setting.  It allows interaction between children, and play activities. The teachers assist each child in adjusting to transitioning to Kindergarten.  Teachers help the children develop individuality and independence. The former is accomplished through classroom learning centers that provide individualized instruction in small groups or on an individual basis.
