Hope Grows Child Development Center has selected Fox Chapel Shopping Center as the children’s day care and educational facility’s third location in the Montgomery County region.
The center is expected to be operational in May, joining sites in Montgomery Village and Germantown.
Founded and owned by Salema Horn, the group signed a lease with Fox Chapel LLC for 10,803 square feet of space within the 115,000-square-foot neighborhood shopping center positioned at 19721 North Frederick Road in Germantown.
Craig Kates, director of tenant advisory services for Edge, represented the tenant and Susan Bourgeois of The Rappaport Companies was involved in negotiations on behalf of the landlord.
The center offers a range of programming for children ranging from infant to school age including before and after school day care. The center focuses on providing a nurturing and educational environment with an emphasis on intellect and social development and maintaining an atmosphere that promotes respect for diversity, mutual trust and personal and social responsibility. The educational philosophy is guided by the standards set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and parents are recognized as an integral component of their child’s ongoing education.
Located just off Md. Route 355 (Frederick Road), Fox Chapel Shopping Center is anchored by Great Wall Supermarket and Hope Grows Child Development Center will be operating within a majority of the space formerly occupied by Gold’s Gym. More than 33,000 vehicles pass the site on a daily basis and more than 55,000 people live or work within a three-mile radius.
