Meet Tom and Vikki Cheng - proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Bristow. Longtime residents of the greater Washington D.C. metro area, the Chengs opened the Primrose School of Bristow in July of 2015. They are thrilled to bring the Primrose experience, offering premier early education and care, to families in the Bristow community. Tom and Vikki have three daughters Abigail, Rebecca and Audrey. Back in their hometown of Gaithersburg, Md., the Chengs enrolled their two older daughters, Abigail and Rebecca, in an early education program but were uncertain their children were receiving the high-quality early education and care they deserved. In 2010, after researching more options for premier preschool providers, Tom and Vikki discovered Primrose Schools. After visiting and touring a school, they immediately fell in love with the Balanced Learning curriculum and knew it was the type of school they wished for their daughters to attend. The Chengs both come from entrepreneurial families and always knew they wanted to own their own business someday. After learning about the Primrose experience and the impact it has on a child's development, they knew Primrose was the right fit for their family. Their youngest daughter, Audrey, graduated from the Primrose School of Bristow, and Abigail and Rebecca participated in the Primrose Explorers after-school program for children up to age 12. Prior to becoming Franchise Owners, Tom worked as an information technology manager in Federal contracting. Vikki currently works as a Vice President of technology company in the financial services industry. They met while studying at the University of Maryland where they both earned their bachelor's degrees in information technology and finance. Vikki continued her education and also earned a master's degree in business administration. "We understand the complexities of selecting an early child care provider," said Tom. "There is nothing more important to us than ensuring our children are loved and cared for, while knowing they are receiving the best early education. We found that with Primrose, and we look forward to introducing Primrose School of Bristow to local families." The Cheng's goal is to provide an atmosphere where children can grow their Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts. Primrose School of Bristow features the exclusive Balanced Learning curriculum for children ages 6 weeks to 6-years-old. Developed by and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-based curriculum blends teacher-guided and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development.
We are conveniently located on Balaton Lake Lane, right down the street from Victory Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Bristow, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.

We are SO proud of our Explorers for their commitment to helping our community! We were featured on Chanel 9 this morning and are very proud of our school and our wonderful teacher, Ms. Erika for guiding our wonderful Explorers and teaching them how important it is to give without expecting anything in return. 🥰
Fostering a sense of belongingness has been a part of every day at Primrose for the past 40 years, and we’re excited to invite all families, from Primrose and beyond, to join in as we celebrate the annual National Day of Belongingness on September 29.

Try these easy at-home activities to promote character and social growth that will help children celebrate their similarities and differences, and help create connections with others.
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.
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.
