Kemba and Frederick Black, along with their sons, Frederick, Hunter and Noah, are our August Family of the Month. Kemba writes, “Seven years ago we had to make the agonizing decision about the care of our first born son when we returned to work. We ultimately decided on the Primrose School because of the school’s record of providing a comprehensive curriculum to its students. After our first 3 ½ years with another Primrose, the need arose to relocate our two children from the original Primrose School they were attending. Primrose of Barker Cypress was a good location for us, and we decided to look into the suitability of the staff. For us, the greatest attraction then and now, is the longevity of the administrative staff of Primrose Barker Cypress. We take such tremendous comfort in knowing that the members of the school’s administrative team have chosen to provide for this school’s children for decades. It speaks to their degree of care and commitment to the children of Primrose Barker Cypress.
When our third son was born, the decision about his care was far from agonizing! Indeed, it was comforting to know that all of our children would be cared for in a school with warm, compassionate and competent caregivers. Our time with Primrose Barker Cypress over the past three years has truly been a wonderful experience. One of the things which we have appreciated most is the prompt and frequent communication we have received from the school. Whether notification of illness or safe arrival to a field trip destination, reminders of forms due or the weekly newsletter, we are kept updated and informed of relevant events.
Teachers and staff are consistently professional and do not hesitate to pause to address any question or concern expressed. We have particularly enjoyed the impromptu chats with our children’s teachers during drop-off or pick-up. It helps to reassure us that they are aware of our children’s individual needs and that our children are special to them. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to have our children cared for by the Primrose Barker Cypress team. They have flourished during their time in this school. We look forward to continued partnership with Primrose Barker Cypress to nourish our children and support their ongoing development."
