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
Find out how our time-tested Balanced Learning approach makes the difference.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Burlington daycare. Right down the road from Northwest Park and Burlington Mall, we are conveniently located on Greenleaf Way.

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.
The first day of school was a success! We are ready and exited for the year of learning ahead!
Today our Pre-K and Summer Adventure Club students got to hang out with some underwater friends from the New England Aquarium. The traveling touch tanks are a great way to bring the ocean into the classroom and give students the opportunity to get up close with these amazing creatures!
As parents, we are familiar with the anxiety that some children can exhibit when they leave for camp or begin school.
In August 2019 we recognize, Ms. Katie Walsh as the Apple of Our Eye. She started working at PSOB in September 2018 and in that time she has become a very valuable faculty member on our team. Ms. Katie Walsh is always smiling and engaged with the children. She began her career at PSOB as an infant teacher but soon fell in love with our toddler classroom and has been outstanding in room 3 since. She arrives to school every day with a positive mood and ready to take on any challenge that faces her. Katie has been incredibly flexible and excited to learn. As a toddler teacher she has worked hard to get to know the families, learn the curriculum, and become an invaluable part of the classroom. She is amazingly creative, especially when it comes to using songs and sign language in the classroom. Her upbeat and positive attitude quickly connected her with each child. We would describe her as a team player and consider ourselves are very lucky to have Ms. Walsh as part of our Primrose family! Congratulations to this exceptional early education professional
Today our students were introduced to several different math games! These games encouraged number recognition, sorting, addition, counting, shape recognition, and various other math skills! And of course we all had a blast while playing!
Guilt — it’s a trap that many parents fall into.
Primrose Academy Credential - PAC Six of our faculty participated in a pilot program called Primrose Academy Credential, PAC. The new program will roll out starting in September 2019 for all of our faculty to become more valuable to our families, children and their own careers. We are excited to launch the new program. Thank you to the six participants who provided us with feedback on how to make the new program a huge success. Congratulations on completing PAC 2!
We celebrated four of our outstanding faculty for years of commitment to our school, children and families. Cheers to many more years!
It’s never too early to help your child develop positive character traits.
For our third day of STEM week we had a special visit from iRobot. The children used their engineering skills to deconstruct robots, investigate how they operate and then rebuilt the robots. The children had so much fun and were able to use tools and explore the technology behind iRobot's products. Thank you iRobot for sharing your robots and educating our children, they loved it!
For our second day of STEM Week, we had a school wide LEGO party! The children explored various LEGO Education sets, brought creations from their imaginations to life, and solved some design challenges. LEGO encourages the ability to visualize three-dimensional objects and the ability imagine and manipulate spatial information in your head. While using LEGO children must analyze what they see, perceive the parts that make up the whole, and figure out how the parts relate to each other. To be really successful, they may also need to think quantitatively -- to count. And it helps if they can imagine what an object would look like from another angle. "Lego's are a good introduction to communicating ideas with physical objects," notes Tiffany Tseng, an engineer in the MIT Media Lab. "Putting things together and taking them apart got me interested in how things work.”
Whether you’re an infant or an adult, regular exercise is one of the key ingredients to developing physical skills.
Science Day: Today for the first day of STEM Week we were joined by Adam and Aaron from Einstein’s Workshop. The children worked in small groups to build propeller cars. Then they worked independently to create rockets. We ended the morning by shooting off each rocket out on the playground! This incredible science visit taught us about the design process, some of the basics of aerodynamics, and other scientific principles.
Today we hosted our first ever Career Day in Kindergarten. We were visited by some of our dads, moms, and one of our grandmothers! We learned about what it is like to be an engineer, software designer, artist, scientist, and video game designer!
Parents play a major role in helping young children develop a healthy social life.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
