H.O.P.E. Resource Center, a children’s resource and learning center, has opened in Clayton.
H.O.P.E. is an acronym for Holistic, for teaching the whole child; Omniscient, a vision for preparing tomorrow’s leaders; Progressive, moving forward with innovative methods of teaching and learning; and Educational, with experienced and qualified instructors,.
“Our setting at H.O.P.E. is designed to offer an atmosphere engaging to students through academic and intellectual materials,” said owner Kathryn O. Taylor. The center, she added, is designed not only for those struggling academically but also for high achievers who want to challenge themselves.
H.O.P.E. Resource Center offers many options to students and families, including an academic summer camp. Full- and partial-week plans are available, and tutoring is available from certified teachers at an hourly rate. Before- and after-school care will begin when the school years starts.
An Academic Boot Camp that begins July 29 is aimed at giving students a refresher before the start of the school year.
Taylor is a Clayton native. “Our facilities also address creating a strong sense of community pride; appropriate behavior, including gang prevention and anti-bullying; and establishing healthy living styles,” she said.
H.O.P.E. Resource Center is in Suite 100 at 8928 U.S. 70 Business West. Current hours of operation are Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday. Hours will expand as enrollment increases.
