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
Hello, my name is Christine Dell.
My husband, Rodney, and I are the proud owners of the Primrose School of Briargate, Colorado Springs. We are also the proud parents of two sons, Jason and Trevor, who have blessed us with two precious daughters in law, and six beautiful grandchildren.
Our entire family have always treasured quality education combined with character development. When we were presented with this opportunity to become owners of the beautiful Briargate School, we knew it was the perfect fit for us. We agree with Primrose that “who children become is as important as what they know.”
We are very excited about the exclusive Primrose curriculum, which is balanced and combines purposeful play with nurturing guidance from our dedicated staff, who also encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We believe our children will benefit from these important skills and attitudes throughout their lives.
We are privileged to work with our professional staff who provide great day-to-day nurturing of every child that attends our school. Together we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you and your precious children into our Briargate family.
To learn more about our beautiful school, please contact or visit us at www.primrosebriargate.com or call (719) 268-0664.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Colorado Springs daycare. Right down the street from The Promenade Shops At Briargate, we are conveniently located on Briar Ridge Point.

At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
This week our Young Toddler classroom talked about different animals that we find in the ocean. They grabbed blue paper to represent the ocean and were able to draw their own animals. This was a great activity for the children to work on their fine motor skills and learning how to hold a crayon! Way to go Ms. Phoebe and Ms. Reannah.
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.
This week in PreK the children were investigating how far an object will go without pushing it. The students were given two different size ramps to see which one goes further and then tested to see if the car would go further without pushing it or adding force by pushing it. The children loved this activity! Thanks Ms. Christie and Ms. Saydra for doing a fun activity to teach how objects move!
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
At Primrose Schools® Summer Adventure Club, learning meets fun through hands-on activities—like sports, robotics, and more—that encourage creativity, compassion and resourcefulness.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Today we worked to create movement based art. We decided on two colors of paint, placed two metal balls in the box with the paint, and used a magnet on the outside of the box to create our artwork! Way to go Ms. LaBrisa and Ms. Takisha! The children had so much fun.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
On Dec 30 the Marshall fire destroyed almost 1000 homes in the Flatiron area. The Primrose Schools in the area were thankfully spared but many staff and families had to evacuate. We are keeping in touch with these schools and have made a donation to help support them. The Primrose Franchise is also supporting these communities. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families effected by this.
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.
This week our PreK classroom's did fun science experiments. They learned about solids and liquids, then they mixed a liquid (vinegar) with power (baking soda) and watched what happened. They had so much fun with this activity!
This week many classes have been talking about their colors. They experimented with color mixing and learned they can make a new color when they mix two others together!
Our infant classroom has been talking about soft things. For this Wonder Time the children grabbed a mirror and looked at themselves in it. We talked about how when we touch the mirror it is soft, we added paint on it and let me slide their hands across the soft surface while painting a portrait of themselves. Once they completed this, Ms. Kulia transferred it onto a piece of paper! It was a great activity for them!
This week in Early Preschool the students were discussing the winter weather. The children read a book about different things they can see in the winter, then the children touched ice and discussed how ice is cold just like snow is cold. Afterwards the children painted their own winter wonderland mural. They had so much fun!
Our weather turned cold this week which meant some of our morning recess’ had to be done inside. Ms. LaBrisa and Ms. Takisha set up a fun activity for their students. They grabbed two cones and have the children work on their kicking skills. The objective was to kick the ball between the two cones and see how far it would go. The kids had so much fun!
This week our Preschool class has been talking about the season change. The first day the children went outside and compared the different trees. They noticed that some of the trees are beginning to lose their leaves. They discussed how in the summer they were able to wear shorts but when fall begins their clothing will change too. The next day the class took magnifying glasses outside and observed the trees and grass, then went inside and sketched what they saw. They also had leaves in their classroom to look up close and really identify different colors of them. This was such a fun activity for them and they are excited that Fall has arrived!
This week Preschool talked about different types of weather we can experience here in Colorado. They spoke about tornados, rain storms, sunny days, and snow days. At the end of the week the children were able to choose their favorite type of weather that they learned about. The children then created their own weather props to use with a music and movement activity. During this activity they focused on learning to hold scissors in a functional manner and tried cut on a line or cut out shapes. Way to go Preschool!
Our PreK program has been working on a project called “The Jewel River.” The kids were tasked with recreating the painting. Part one consists of looking for shapes in the painting and putting them in the correct space. They drew the mountain, boat, and trees with pencils. Part two the children used a white crayon to create the clouds and waves in their river. Once they were down drawing, the used watercolor to paint over the crayon. The final step was to paint the grass and add texture using salt. The children did an amazing job replicating the painting as instructed in the curriculum! Way to go PreK, we are so proud of you.
Last week our preschool classroom read the book “It Looked Like Spilled Milk” by Charles Shaw. The book talks about using our imagination and naming things we see in the clouds. Our preschool teachers took their classroom outside to take a look in the sky and see what they could find! They found bunnies, rocket ships, Minnie Mouse, and so much more. They children drew their own cloud on a piece of paper then later the teachers took the papers to create their own book called “What We See in the Clouds” and read it to the classroom.
