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

Upon my return into the workforce, I was quite reluctant to seeking a place that would best meet the needs of my daughter. She stayed out of child care for about a year and half-then once I was ready to try a child care facility, one can imagine I was with great worry. Nonetheless, my daughter had gone through two child care facilities with the last one really being a great disappointment.

After continued searching to find a child care center to fit what I wanted for my daughter, I recalled hearing about Primrose. So, I did some research, took a tour, and decided that this would be the final decision that I could make for the best care of my child. Lo and behold I hit the jackpot! I was so smitten by the ambiance of the school. The way the teachers and staff members treated the children and parents; along with the structure of the school and how they educate the children on an advanced level that is fitting for their age group. My daughter is ALWAYS happy, she speaks very well for a 2 1/2 year old. She almost acts like a 4/5 year old in certain situation. Moreover, she adores her teachers as-well-as friends...it was in that moment, that I knew the decision that I made to send my daughter to Primrose, was the best decision I'd made on her behalf.

I know when it is time for my daughter to move on the grade school, she will be well prepared. I would highly recommend this school for any parent seeking to have a place that is more than just standard child care, but a place that nurtures, loves, creates, explores, educates, inspires, prepares, and embraces the need to care for your child during your absence.

I am forever grateful to Primrose for how they care for my daughter.
