After my maternity leave, we took my son to a different school. Immediately, I knew something just wasn't right. My son, who had developed such a personality already, was zoned out whenever I picked him up every day. I tried to tell myself I was overreacting and that I had new mom jitters. After 2 1/2 weeks he was still so lethargic and would barely smile. I decided to sit in unexpectedly one day and it was really hard for me not to snatch him up and leave after a few hours. I knew then that I had to get him enrolled somewhere else. The Primrose Director shared my concern and within two weeks my son attended his first day at Primrose. When I picked him up that day, I had my son back! He was energetic, smiling and most importantly engaged in his surroundings again. He wasn't sitting in a swing all day like at other schools. He is excited to see his teachers and new friends. It's the best decision my husband and I ever made. I feel like I can be productive at work because he is in such good hands. We are truly blessed we have this option and can provide this loving atmosphere for our son.
When I started working at Primrose School of Champions almost five years ago, I was still in high school and worked part time. Over the past five years, I have grown and learned a lot, and I believe that working at Primrose has helped me become the person I am today. I have met so many amazing teachers that have given me the tools I need to teach my students; and I have met a lot of great parents who have served as an example for me, when I have a family. But, the children are the ones that have affected me the most! It is amazing to see how much a child can love, and how willing they are to learn, share, and accept each other. These children inspire me every day! It is all these people who make Primrose School of Champions such a fulfilling place to work!
Our family became part of the Primrose Family exactly one year ago this month and we only wish that we had made the transition to Primrose sooner. We have several family friends, in other cities, who had been telling us all about the great experiences they had been having at their respective Primrose schools. We were feeling like the facility Brianna was attending just was not meeting her developmental needs any more and decided that it was time to check into Primrose for her betterment. It took us very little time to realize that we had made the right decision to transfer Brianna to Primrose. The curriculum is exceptional and she was no longer bored at school and became excited to learn each and every day. We suddenly realized why Primrose was titled a school and not just a childcare facility. Within weeks of our transition, we began to inform our friends of what a great place Primrose School of Champions really was and we soon saw a few other transition to find all of the same positive experiences we had found.
We are both full time working parents and choosing Primrose School of Champions for our newborn baby has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. The staff in both infant rooms truly go above and beyond to provide a safe, happy, and nurturing environment for the children, with their support my baby girl gets bigger and stronger every week; to add that most of these teachers have been with Primrose for over 8 years. Everyone at Primrose team has been phenomenal. I will never forget the day I walked into Primrose Champions, it was around the holiday season and they were putting decorations up, it felt like walking into our home! Since then it has been absolutely incredible and we feel blessed to be part of this family!
If I had to tell somebody why to choose Primrose, I would use the word perfection. You can’t get any better than this environment. There is such a trust level that they establish, the curriculum is very enriching, it’s very well-rounded, the teachers are very warm. So you feel like it’s a family environment.
My husband and I really try to have a culture of loving to learn at home, but since she started at Primrose, I feel like actually it’s our daughter that’s been bringing that energy into our house.
