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
Meet Karen and Daniel Shults—proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School at Brier Creek. This dynamic mother-son duo is excited to bring the Primrose Experience of premier early education and care to families in the Raleigh-Durham area, especially since the Shults’ are generations-long residents of Raleigh.
Deeply rooted in the community with strong familial ties, Karen and Daniel share core family values, a love of children and a genuine desire to provide the best educational experiences and opportunities for young learners.
“It is incredibly important to invest in your child and in the next generation,” explains Karen. “Daniel and I both believe that who children become is as important as what they know and that a solid foundation is built through love, trust and play. It is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can learn and grow.”
For Karen, opening Primrose School at Brier Creek is the perfect opportunity to do something rewarding and meaningful in the community, and for Daniel, it provides him an impactful career that also enables him to positively influence the next generation.
At the school, Karen will handle the day-to-day operations and will draw from her business expertise acquired through more than three decades with IBM. She earned a psychology degree from East Carolina University and has a Level Three Director Certification from the State of North Carolina. Karen is also a military veteran, having served as a sergeant for nearly four years.
Daniel, a graduate of North Carolina State University, will lead the school’s marketing, financial and technology-related efforts, applying his experiences from working in corporate sales at Verizon and later with SAS. Daniel’s children will both attend the Primrose Explorers Program when the school opens.
Karen and Daniel look forward to harnessing their passion for children and education to provide a life-changing early education experience for Brier Creek children and families.
“Raising Daniel as a single mother, I realized the importance of providing him with every educational opportunity,” said Karen. “We both understand the benefits of early education and the importance of building the foundation children need for future learning and life.”
Primrose School at Brier Creek will feature the Balanced Learning ® approach in infant through Pre-Kindergarten classrooms and the Primrose Explorers before- and after-school program for students up to age 12. The research-informed curriculum, developed and taught exclusively at Primrose schools, blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.

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.
Our school hosted VIP guest readers in celebration of Read Across America Day!
Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
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.
