Carrollton, TX – Tom and Priscilla Chow opened up the Primrose School of Castle Hills in Carrollton in 2004. Their vision was to deliver the best and most trusted early childhood education and child care services for area families. Recently, the Chows were selected out of more than 240 Primrose Schools as National President’s Award winners for their passion, professionalism and commitment to the Carrollton community.
“We were pleased to be recognized not only for our efforts, but the hard work of our staff and our partnership with parents and the Carrollton community to ensure high-quality early education for the children who attend our school,” said Tom.
Despite the challenging economic climate, the Primrose School of Castle Hills operates consistently at more than 90 percent enrollment. Moreover, Tom and Priscilla’s school serves as one of eight training facilities nationwide for franchise owners new to the franchise system. Priscilla, a former teacher and school principal, credits much of the staff’s continued enthusiasm to their shared commitment to community involvement and philanthropy.
Annually, Primrose Schools recognizes top-notch franchise owners from across the country with the President’s Award. Selected schools exemplify excellence in Primrose Schools’ rigorous Standard of Excellence Accreditation evaluation. It is because of the hard work of franchise owners like the Chows that Primrose students attain a significantly higher overall level of mastery of school readiness concepts, and in most cases, twice the level of their normative peer group.
Over the past six years, Primrose Schools has used the Bracken School Readiness Assessment to ensure the effectiveness of its proprietary curriculum. Results at the national level indicate Primrose students are ready for elementary school. More than 90 percent of Primrose students mastered 80 percent of the Bracken school readiness concepts. Primrose students also show 1.5 times more growth than their peers in concepts mastered by the end of the school year.
Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose Schools presented the Chows with the award during the company’s National Conference in Atlanta, GA.
“Tom and Priscilla understand how important it is to help provide peace of mind and balance in the lives of families in the Carrollton area,” said Kirchner. “Everyday they provide a fun, safe and loving environment where children can have active minds, healthy bodies and happy hearts. This award is simply a testament of their leadership and personal commitment to early childhood education.”
The Primrose Schools of Castle Hills provide area families with a unique balance of academics, play and character development, for children ages six weeks to five years old. For more information about the Primrose School of Castle Hills, please visit www.primrosecastlehills.com.
