Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
We are the proud owners of the Primrose School at Cahoon Commons and Primrose School at Edinburgh Commons coming in Spring 2020! Inspiring your child to a future filled with academic achievements is both your goal and ours. Our balanced accredited curriculum provides both a child directed Montessori style and a teacher directed philosophy in all programs. We deliver the best and most trusted early education and childcare for families in our service area. We believe that a successful school requires close relationships with parents and excellent ongoing communication. We are partners in supporting your child and we are committed to providing your child an enriching early education curriculum and character development program that prepares them for their future success. Our current school Primrose School at Cahoon Commons is centrally located in the Great Bridge area of Chesapeake just off of Cedar Road near Wal-Mart at Cahoon Commons. We hope you will visit us soon to schedule a tour!

Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
Please join us on Friday, July 1st, 2022 at 3:30pm for our Red, White, & Blue Parade!
To better meet the individual needs of every child, we’re proud to implement Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®-3 and ASQ®:SE-2) in Primrose schools across the country.
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
Primrose School will be closed Monday, July 4th, 2022
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
