Galena Elementary School to host open house for new early learning hub

GALENA — The team at the newly launched Judy Center Early Learning Hub at Galena Elementary School is hosting a grand opening at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24.

All are welcome.

Families are invited to visit with the Judy Center’s staff and program partners.

There also will be food and giveaways as part of the celebration.

“We are so very excited to share our new center with the families in our community,” longtime teacher Erin Legg, now the Judy Center coordinator here, said in a news release.

“We look forward to seeing many friends, both new and old, and sharing with them the opportunities that the Judy Center will bring to us,” Legg said.

Melissa Cannon, another longtime teacher at GALES, is the family service coordinator as a member of Legg’s team.

Named for the late Judith P. Hoyer, an early childhood educator and wife of long-serving Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer, Judy Centers throughout the state serve early learners. These specially funded programs promote school readiness for children in high-need areas.

Judy Centers offer full-day programs for children from birth to 5 years old.

Judy Center programming is developed with funds from the Maryland State Department of Education’s Division of Early Childhood.

Kent County Public Schools now has two Judy Centers: the newly opened center at Galena Elementary School and another at H.H. Garnet Elementary School in Chestertown.

Galena Elementary School is located at 114 S. Main St., Galena.
