Welcome to Primrose School!
Our names are Lauren and Josh Jones, and we are the proud new owners of the Primrose School of Alpharetta East. With the strong reputation Primrose Schools has across the Atlanta community, we first discovered Primrose looking for a place where our daughter could thrive. We were immediately drawn to Primrose Schools’ focus on character development and excellence in teaching children in a holistic, balanced approach. Now with two little children, we are so thankful to be a part of the Primrose family and are thrilled to bring our passion for education to the Primrose School of Alpharetta East and the greater Alpharetta community.
Before joining the Primrose family, Lauren worked as an elementary education teacher for fifteen years. A Georgia native - born and raised in Marietta, Georgia - she studied at Berry College and earned both an undergraduate and graduate degree in Early Childhood Education. She has teaching experience in the state of Georgia and Monterrey, Mexico as an international teacher. Most recently, Lauren worked as a first-grade teacher with the Lovett School in Atlanta.
Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, Josh moved to Atlanta for work ten years ago and currently works as a technology consultant. He studied at Furman University and University of Virginia, earning a degree in accounting and is a Georgia Certified Public Accountant. Josh will support Lauren by helping with the school’s accounting and finance needs.
“Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
We are truly thrilled to be a part of your family’s education journey!

Please join us in congratulating Ms. Tinika for being selected as the Apple of Our Eye for November and December!
It’s November, which means it’s time for our national Caring and Giving Food Drive! Read our blog to find fun ways you can help your child lead their own family food drive at home.
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.
