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
Welcome to the Primrose School of Aldie!
We are the proud owners, Amanda and Eric McDaniel. We are passionate about early childhood education and are dedicated to positively impacting children’s lives in a safe and nurturing learning environment.
We come from a science background, having met in graduate school while both were studying physics at the University of Virginia. As parents, we struggled to find a quality early childhood education option for our children. When we were introduced to Primrose Schools, we were impressed by the strength of the curriculum and the focus on character development.
We opened our first Primrose School in the Richmond area in 2008. Relocating to Loudoun County, we opened the Primrose School of South Riding, in 2013. The Primrose School of Aldie will serve families in the Stone Ridge area of Loudoun County. We take great pride in delivering an exceptional early childhood experience to the families of Loudoun County.
We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
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.
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.
