We know that your family will benefit tremendously from her positive energy, unwavering commitment, and deep knowledge of Primrose School’s Balanced Learning philosophy.

    Rick & Alicia Grenolds

    Franchise Owners

    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!
