Residents of Ottumwa gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Pickwick Early Childhood Center Thursday afternoon.

The center opened this August after years of being under construction and already has hundreds of children enrolled. It aims to prepare kids for Kindergarten and elementary school.

Visitors met some of the staff and learned more about early education. They also had the opportunity to tour the building and ask questions.

The Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation also presented a speech as part of the inauguration ceremony.
