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
Welcome to Primrose Schools!
My name is Matt Coombs and I am the proud owner of Primrose School of Cross Creek. My wife Dora and I share eleven beautiful children together. As a parent, I understand how difficult it can be to find both a safe and educational environment that also provides the exceptional level of care we all expect for our most precious gifts. I am beyond excited to be a part of the Primrose family and to share this amazing school with the Tampa Bay community.
I owned and operated a high-quality family child care program in Indiana for 15 years. In addition, I also have a Child Development Associate Credential in Family Childcare. My love and passion for early childhood education is what brought me to Primrose Schools. I am passionate about our mission to forge a path that leads to a brighter future for all children. I am dedicated to making a difference for all children and families by delivering high-quality early learning experiences that lead to the right foundation for continual learning in life. I am devoted to partnering with families to give children everywhere the opportunity to shine!
Raising our children in Indiana, I dreamed to deliver the best and most trusted early care and education for children and families across America. After a long journey, I knew Primrose was the best fit for my family and me. Through parental and work experiences, I recognize that quality early care and education with an emphasis on character development nurtures the foundation for future academic and personal success. The exclusive Primrose Schools Balanced Learning® curriculum extends beyond cognitive learning, with a deep focus on social emotional and character development, helping to nurture Active Minds, Healthy Bodies, and Happy Hearts®.
Who children become is as important as what they know is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
I am excited to meet you and your family!
We are conveniently located on Cross Creek Boulevard, right down the street from the Lower Hillsborough Wilderness Preserve and Heritage Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Tampa, our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us the leader in early education and child care.

Congratulations to the Haley Family!
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.
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.
