Hitchcock Woods Learning Center is celebrating 30 years of caring for children.
The celebration started with the kick-off of the Summer Enrichment Program, which is in session Tuesday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Owner and director, Pattie Welsh, was very excited to start celebration with the first Summer Enrichment topic of baseball.
“We’re very excited to have three special guests, and former students, Raymond Cmil IV, Olivia Cmil and Nick Petrolla, who came to help teach the fundamentals of baseball and how to be a good sports,” said Welsh.
The guests brought baseball equipment for the children to try on and organized a game of baseball. The children enjoyed having the guests play baseball with them.
“You know you have come full circle when former students come back to teach the younger students,” said Welsh.
The center is a full-service learning center that services children 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
The program offers intentional guidance and enhanced experiences to build self esteem and confidence.
