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
Mrs. Linda and Dr. Shawn Batterberry have been the proud owners of Primrose School of Lone Tree for 20 years, opening their doors on April 3rd, 2000. They have had the honor of educating 1000s of children throughout the years. They have taken this responsibility very seriously and thank all of their families for entrusting them with their most prized possession.
They opened their second school, Primrose School of Castle Rock on July 27th, 2007.
Linda and Shawn are Primrose Franchising Company Presidential Award winners, an award given to a select few franchisees for excellence in the care and education provided to their students.
Both are originally from North Dakota. Linda grew up in a rural farming community near the Canadian border. She attended Bismarck Junior College where she met Shawn; they have been married for 37 years. Linda went to work for a local family owned meat processing company as an accounts manager after graduating from college.
Shawn grew up in a family of educators, and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Moorhead State University and became a social studies teacher. He continued his education journey and earned two Master's Degrees. He completed his PhD in Educational Policy and Leadership studies from The Ohio State University in 1997.
Shawn accepted the pricipalship position at South High School, one of 10 inner Denver high schools. They moved their family to Denver and he served as principal for 8 years. Shawn was named 2001 Colorado Principal of the Year, which was the first Principal of the Year award Denver Public Schools had ever received.
The Batterberrys have three grown children, who all attended Primrose when they were toddlers, pre-kindergarteners and for before and after school care.
Linda and Shawn chose to open both of their Primrose Schools because quality educational child care was so hard to find.
We are conveniently located, right down the street from the Outlets at Castle Rock on New Abbey Lane, right off Interstate 25 and Castle Rock Parkway. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Castle Rock, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.

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 Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
Primrose offers programs from Infants to Pre-K and beyond. Click to explore more.
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.
Please be aware that we require all enrolled children to be current with vaccinations per AAP guidelines or to be on a pediatrician approved CDC catch-up schedule. To protect the health and well-being of the children in our care, we do not offer admission to children who are not current with their immunizations even if parents have filed an exemption with the state of Colorado on their behalf.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
The importance of a child's first five years.
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.
