Ms. Cione earned her BA in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado and has been affiliated with Primrose Schools for over fifteen years. Prior to opening our DTC school in 2013, Ms. Cione was director of a very well regarded Primrose School in suburban Dallas for nearly five years.
In addition to managing our 60+ teachers and coordinating the school's overall operations, Ms. Cione leads the orientation for all new families and looks forward to welcoming you and your children to Primrose School at the DTC. We know that your family will benefit tremendously from her positive energy, unwavering commitment, and deep knowledge of Primrose School’s Balanced Learning philosophy.
Ms. Cione's sons are currently enrolled in our Pre-Kindergarten and Toddler programs.
As Curriculum Director, Ms. Emile is responsible for the professional development and on-going training of our faculty, coordinating our teachers' lesson plans and implementation, ensuring compliance with our AdvancED accreditation and faithfully applying our use of Pyramid practices (the social/emotional techniques that we’ve been implementing with CU Denver’s PELE Center) to build positive, trusting relationships throughout the school between teachers and students.
Ms. Emile, who is also a mother of four young girls, earned her BA in French and Philosophy from Hunter College in 2006 and completed her Master's Degree in Education & Teacher Leadership in 2012. She has her certification not only as a Large Center Director but is also recognized as a licensed ECE (early childhood education) trainer in the state of Colorado.
Ms. Emile works alongside teachers in our Venture Program (Pathways through Pre-Kindergarten classrooms) on a rotating basis and is accessible to parents to discuss their child's social, emotional and academic needs and development.
Hello, we are Rick and Alicia Grenolds - proud owners of Primrose School at the Denver Tech Center. Having both come from the healthcare industry, we are dedicated to positively impacting children's lives in a safe and nurturing learning environment.
As parents of two young girls, we understand the importance of finding high-quality, exceptional child care that Primrose Schools offers the community. When we began looking for child care, we struggled to find an option that met our needs; however, as soon as we were introduced to Primrose, we immediately understood why the school had earned such an incredible reputation. We instantly felt at home and were thoroughly impressed by the welcoming staff, proven curriculum and unique approach to early childhood education.
We were so impressed that Rick decided to make a career change to dedicate himself fully to opening a Primrose School in the heart of the Denver Tech Center. Rick is at the school every day greeting/touring families and providing support for our management team and teachers, to ensure they have the depth of resources and on-going training necessary to provide an exceptional early learning experience for the children. Alicia continues her primary career as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at Children's Hospital; however, she also serves as the school's nurse consultant, providing training and resources for our teachers and families.
We are both very passionate about providing the best care for the children in the community. We understand the importance of character development and instilling a love of learning throughout a child's early years, and believe this is essential to building a healthier generation. Primrose Schools is The Leader in Educational Child Care® and we are committed to delivering the best possible experience when it comes to your child's education.
We are excited to provide the high-quality care necessary to prepare your children for future success in school and in life. We look forward to meeting you!
