We believe that every child represents the promise of a better tomorrow, which is why for nearly 40 years, Primrose Schools has partnered with parents, children, staff, and the communities we serve to make a difference in so many young lives. We remain steadfast in our commitment, especially to those children across the country who are underserved. We call this the Primrose Promise℠.
The Primrose Schools Children's Foundation®, the charitable arm of Primrose Schools, is a not-for-profit organization that combines funding from our schools and national support center in order to make a greater national impact.

Research shows that children’s experiences in the first five years play a significant role in overall health, confidence and success later in life. High-quality early childhood education helps children develop a strong foundation of cognitive and social emotional skills, which increases their ability to enter elementary school ready to succeed
Yet, over 50% of U.S. families live in a child care desert, meaning they do not have sufficient access to providers. Furthermore, the families that do have access often lack the diversity of options to meet their unique needs.

With access to child care being a major, bi-partisan issue for legislators, Primrose Schools is also forming cross-sector partnerships with leaders throughout the country to advocate for a mixed delivery child care model , forging a path that leads to a brighter future for all children.
