Community Service

Teaching Social Responsibility through Community Service Projects

At Primrose, giving back is much more than raising money; it is about getting involved, being hands-on, and teaching our students why it is important to help others in need. Our schools are highly involved in their local communities, and our Primrose Support Center staff is proud to be involved and committed. Schools choose a variety of local organizations to support through community service projects and fundraising opportunities. These opportunities offer valuable life lessons as our students join their families and school staff members in community service activities.

Making a difference in the lives of others is a passion shared throughout Primrose. Helping children understand generosity continues to be one of our most important initiatives. Each year, proceeds from our special community fundraising events support local children’s charities in addition to several national charitable organizations through the Primrose Children’s Foundation®. The school staff, the children, and their families participate in activities that encourage community giving and a spirit of helping others.

While some of our community service activities are part of our Helping Hands® Programs, many are projects that our individual schools support through strong relationships they have built with a variety of local organizations. This spirit drives Primrose schools across the nation to help students discover the warmth of contribution and make a difference in their communities each and every day!

Here are a few examples of community service initiatives happening in our schools:

Community Service in Our Schools

In Primrose classrooms across the country, generosity is a lesson that is taught throughout the month of December with our Helping Hands curriculum.

Primrose Schools annually participate in Read Across America Day each Spring. As part of this initiative, our schools collect books to donate for the Og’s Bountiful Books Drive.

Parent Testimonial

We have been a Primrose family for five years and counting, and what a great experience it has been! Leah started at Primrose when she was just 13 weeks old and graduated from Pre-K in June. Allison also started as an infant and is currently in the PS2 class. When we were originally looking for school for Leah, Primrose was the first and last place we visited. After spending just 5 minutes talking with “Miss Lilly” in the infant room, we knew this was the place for us! The curriculum at Primrose is excellent; but of course, the heart and soul of the school are the teachers and staff. Our girls have come to think of them as family and it’s so obvious how much love and care they receive from their teachers. Leah and Allison often play “school” at home with their stuffed animals, while pretending to be one of their teachers. It brings us joy as parents to see how much they look-up to, and adore, their Primrose family.
