Students at The Professional Center for Child Development on Osgood Street in Andover were treated to a special guest last week — a visit from the Boston Red Sox’s 2013 World Series trophy on its tour through the region.
The Developmental Day School class created a banner that read “Day School ROX Cause They Love The SOX” and the students and staff sorted Red Sox shirts for the occasion.
The preschool students, meanwhile, had a little question-and-answer session with the Boston Red Sox representative leading the tour of the trophy. The curious youngsters wanted to learn everything they could about the coveted award. One of the things they discovered is the trophy weighs 35 pounds, is 24 inches tall and is made of sterling silver.
The Professional Center for Child Development provides therapeutic and educational services for children of all abilities and their families. Through its programming, the center, which has sites in both Andover and Lawrence, strives to eliminate barriers to growth and development for children with disabilities and families coping with health issues and challenges. It also offers a preschool program.
