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 Atlanta Westside!
Meet Jennifer Bunting-Graden, George Elba, and Chris and Natalie Williams – the proud franchise owners of the Primrose School of Atlanta Westside. As parents of preschool children, Primrose’s belief that who children become is as important as what they know resonates with us. This philosophy is at the core of Primrose’s exclusive Balanced Learning approach, which balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion.
We spent a lot of time evaluating childcare offerings when we were seeking care for our children, and it was clear that Primrose stands head and shoulders above all available options. Primrose delivers more than a curriculum. In addition to incorporating science, math, music, language, and art concepts throughout the day, Primrose focuses on character development and life skills – without forgetting the fun! Our time-tested, research-informed classroom offerings and equipment are complemented by our extraordinarily fun, age-appropriate playgrounds. Primrose is a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families!
Unfortunately for us, we were unable to get into the Primrose school in our area because it had an incredibly long waitlist. Now that we are opening our own school, we are, of course, first in line to enroll our children!
Our dynamic team has the perfect combination of skills to ensure we deliver the Primrose promise EVERY DAY. Jennifer holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and a business degree from the University of Toronto; George has a computer engineering degree from Texas A & M University; Natalie has a law degree from Columbia Law School and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Journalism from Emory University; and Chris has a business degree from Emory University and is a Certified Public Accountant. Together, we have years of work experience solving mission critical problems for some of the largest companies in the world.
We are excited to meet you and your family, and we know you will agree with us that a Primrose education is unmatched!
We aren't just a daycare in Atlanta, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, right down the street from Publix Super Market and Moores Mill Center on Marietta Boulevard Northwest.
