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
Education has been a lifelong passion for Allison, as a first-generation college graduate, and John, who comes from a family of educators. In a dual-career household, we struggled to find a good match for our family that would address both our son’s educational and social-emotional development needs as well as our own need for convenience and the high-quality it takes to feel good about entrusting our child to someone else’s care. We live near Graduate Hospital (Penn Medicine at Rittenhouse), and we know that many of our friends and neighbors have faced the same challenges.
Allison is originally from Georgia, which is the birthplace of Primrose more than 30 years ago, and she knew that Primrose is everything we want for our son and his friends—an inquiry-based learning environment, true character development, and support for our other passion, health and wellness. At Primrose, we call that Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts. We waited for five long years to find the perfect place to bring the Primrose Experience, which is everything we’d been looking for, to families in Center City Philadelphia, and it’s finally arrived in the summer of 2016. Now 7+ years in the making, Primrose School of Center Cty Philadelphia has become the preschool of choice for many in our area.
We invite you to join us on this incredible journey as we open our school at 1635 Market Street, First Floor Plaza Entrance, Philadelphia, PA 19103. We are glad to meet with you personally, or feel free to join one of our parent information meetings in the coming months.

All the best,
Allison Wilson-Maher and John Maher

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.
Reading with your child in the first five years helps develop early literacy skills and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime! Learn how to aid in your child's literacy journey.
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.
We are looking for passionate, dedicated teachers to help us provide a nurturing, quality early learning experience for children and their families.
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.
