Welcome! We are pleased to introduce Rachel and Curt Van Emon, the owners of the Primrose School of Chelmsford.

In 2014, Curt and Rachel opened Primrose School of Burlington, the first Boston-area Primrose School.  In 2021 they opened their second school, the Primrose School of Woburn.  

Curt and Rachel are committed to building a Professional Early Learning enterprise, one that provides a superior learning experiences for our students and families, and opportunities for continual learning and career advancement for our Faculty.  Their commitment to excellence in early childhood development has resulted in various awards including earning Primrose’s Rising Star and Franchisee of the Year Regional Award. Curt also serves as the Chairman of Primrose’s Advisory Board. 

Curt and Rachel both have a passion for education and sought to be involved in the field after college, Rachel having graduated from Harvard University and Curt having graduated from Ball State University. Prior to 2014, Rachel served as the Director of Education for a 500-employee financial services firm. As parents of two children, they understand the multitude of factors that are considered when weighing different childcare options and the importance of early education to later success.

Curt and Rachel are dedicated to positively impacting children's lives, so they are ready not only for school but for life. They strive to create partner relationships with every family, align on educational objectives (with Personal Education Plans for each child) and provide parents with the peace of mind knowing they have chosen the highest quality care experience for their children.

The Primrose philosophy - “Who children become is as important as what they know” - is pivotal to how they implement the Primrose curriculum for our students. Curt and Rachel are proud to be aligned with a brand that is consistently recognized as the leader in educational childcare. Our exclusive Balanced Learning Curriculum® incorporates play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. In Curt and Rachel’s schools, we deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.

We are excited to meet you and your family!
