Gettysburg's Growing Place

Gettysburg's Growing Place

Welcome to Hildebrandt Learning Centers at Gettysburg Growing Place! Gettysburg Growing Place has been an important part of Gettysburg College since 1996. In 2007, the program relocated and expanded into a new, state-of-the-art child care center to further meet the needs of the children in our community. Age-appropriate playgrounds are available on site for outdoor exploration, while a bike path keeps our most active friends on the move!

Meals are included in the center’s tuition, including infant baby food, cereal and formula! Menus are developed in conjunction with HLC’s registered dietitian and are prepared by Gettysburg College Dining Services.

The center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and holds a STAR 4 designation by the Pennsylvania Keystone STARS Program.

Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Afternoon Snack
