Parent Testimonial

Primrose has been an amazing experience. My child enjoys being dropped in the morning and I have conversations with the teachers everyday. They get just as excited as I do when my child learns something new. The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate my families needs. If I call to check on my child 10 times a day they will transfer me through. They are always willing to help me.
