    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!

    ~Lauren and Josh Jones
