Guess who visited the CDC children? That’s right! The Orioles’ Bird made a guest appearance at our Hampton Lane CDC to celebrate a BIG WIN! A Hampton Lane parent nominated our CDC for a contest through Maryland Excels (a community of high-quality childcare and early education programs recognized by the State of Maryland Department of Education) and WE WON! As a prize, Maryland Excels’ representatives surprised students with a visit from the Bird, who graciously and patiently met and took a photo with nearly every child — then visited with our teachers and staff members. Such a fun and spirited day! Congrats to the Center for its stellar programming, reputation, and legacy in the Baltimore preschool community!
