My daughter has been attending Primrose schools for nearly three years now. I decided to move her after the provider she was with told me that they were not able to meet the educational needs she required. My daughter is "special needs" but not in the typical fashion that most people think of it. Most think autistic and learning issues, we are on the other side. She is extremely intelligent and it’s a challenge to keep her engage when she "already knows it" at four. I did months of research and just came coming back to the Primrose websites. The Academy learning styles really resonated with us and after the school visit were sold on it. She moved over to Primrose right after her fist birthday and I can honestly say she exploded across the board. She was feeling challenge and her growth was phenomenal. The teaching staff took special attention to her as they do with all their children and helped realize that it would be in her best interest to have her IQ tested even at such a young age of 2. It’s extremely overwhelming to be told your 2 1/2 old has an IQ of 137 and "will be a Mozart like child when she discovers her niche". As a parent you go from extremely proud, to scared to freaking out about how to financially do it all. I then did more research about Gifted schools in Colorado Springs and you would think that I would have found something that was more WOW then Primrose. And aside from seeing 4 year olds discuss a buffalo heart in a barn, I was greatly disappointed in these more expensive schools that are supposed to be better then Primrose. There isn't something better then Primrose in my opinion in Colorado Springs for early child development. Not only do they foster her education but they also ensure that she can socially interact with other children, learns manners and keeps it in focus for me that she's 4 and even though she can is learning to read and do math she still needs "4 time". The staff at Primrose is a part of our family. They inspire her; they motivate her and are the best examples one can ask to have around their children. The opportunities that Primrose provides with their extracurricular activities AT the school are amazing. From soccer to piano and karate I know that she is in a safe, nurturing and loving environment. I can say that every penny is worth it knowing that I will have a child who has been intellectually and socially challenged. Primrose is giving her the foundation for her education for the rest of her life. I would tell every parent that even though it’s on the top end of the budget for school review the statistics of school dropout/delinquency of children that were not properly stimulated and then compare the statistics of Primrose children and where they end up. Blessings to you and yours on this journey of raising fantastic kids!
I never thought I would feel this good about where I bring my children every day. I have a great peace of mind knowing that they’re in good hands and that they’re getting the best education they can.
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.
I genuinely feel like my daughter is learning something every second of every minute she’s here at Primrose.
