Meet Michele and Tim Alexander – proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School at Colorado Station. They are thrilled to bring the Primrose experience of premier early education and care to families in their Denver community. They are also very proud to have been awarded the Regional Franchisee of the Year in 2019.
As a Colorado native and after living many years in Denver, Michele has long recognized the need for high-quality early education and care in the area. She decided early on that she wanted to help fill this need, and in 2002 she began working at a Primrose school as a toddler classroom teacher. After teaching for four years, Michele went on to serve as Assistant Director, Marketing Director and Director. She spent more than 10 years with the school in total, which solidified her desire to bring the Primrose experience to more children and families in her community.
Tim was introduced to Primrose through Michele and immediately saw the happiness and special learning experience it brings to children and their families. In 2011, the Alexanders decided to make their dream come true by opening their own Primrose school close to their home.
“I have been able to grow with Primrose and have seen how the Balanced Learning® curriculum helps children thrive and develop the foundation needed for future success,” said Michele. “From day one, I fell in love with the Primrose experience and knew that one day I wanted to help my community and its families receive the much-needed early education and care they deserve.”
Michele and Tim first met in 2000 through mutual friends and both earned their bachelor’s degrees at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Michele earned her degree in psychology and later returned to school to receive her Director’s Certification. Tim earned his degree in marketing and has 10+ years of major beverage company marketing experience. He is enjoying helping at the school with marketing, accounting, maintenance and various other duties, as assigned.
During their free time, Michele and Tim love to travel, hike, snowboard, and enjoy being surrounded by family and friends.
The Alexanders are excited to provide their Denver community with a safe, caring environment where children can grow Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®. Primrose School at Colorado Station offers the Primrose exclusive, research-based Balanced Learning®curriculum, which blends teacher-guided learning and child-initiated play with a focus on character development in Infant through Pre-Kindergarten classrooms.
Primrose School at Colorado Station opened on August 24, 2015 and is located at 4300 E. Warren Avenue.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Denver daycare. Right down the road from University Hills Plaza, we are conveniently located on East Warren Avenue.

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.
Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
Words could never explain how grateful our Primrose family is for all of our front line workers and how impactful and vital your roles are. You are risking your lives each day to protect ours. Please send some positive and supportive love to all our essential workers during this trying time. We hope everyone stays healthy and happy!
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.
Og® the Bookworm represents caring and literacy, and is the perfect Primrose Friend to bring your child's school experience to your home. Over the next few weeks, we will provide specially designed interactive activities for children and parents as we navigate at-home learning together.
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.

Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
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.
