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
Meet John and Tara Fudge, proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of East Cobb at Paper Mill. As residents of East Cobb and parents to four children, they are thrilled to bring the Primrose Experience of premier early childhood education and care to families in their local community.
“When we had our first child, it was a challenge to find an early education program with a warm and nurturing environment along with an excellent curriculum,” said Tara. “When we stepped into a Primrose school, we were immediately drawn to the Balanced Learning® approach. We were so impressed how it provides children the chance to grow academically, socially and emotionally and incorporates character development lessons into daily classroom experiences.”
The Fudges share the Primrose belief that who children become is just as important as what they know, and that belief guides them as they raise their three children. Their two youngest daughters, Penelope and Stella, currently attend Primrose School of East Cobb. Their eldest daughter and son, Kylie and Austin, attend one of the local elementary schools in East Cobb.
“Having both worked corporate jobs since graduating college, Tara and I wanted to do something that would make a difference in our community,” said John. “As working parents ourselves, we know what a struggle it can be to entrust your children to someone else’s care. We want to ease that stress by providing a safe, fun learning environment for children to grow, giving parents the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are well-cared for and learning.”
John’s parents instilled a love of learning early on in his life, which helped him discover his passion for volunteering with child-focused organizations. He will handle the day-to-day operations and management of the school to help instill that same love of learning in the students of his school. Prior to becoming a Franchise Owner, John worked as an engineer for a Fortune 100 company headquartered in Atlanta. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Auburn University and an MBA from Georgia State University. Tara earned a bachelor’s and master’s in accounting from East Carolina University and is a licensed CPA. She will provide support for the school as she continues her career in finance working for a Fortune 100 company.
We are conveniently located on Village Parkway NE, down the road from Lake Forest Elementary School and ten minutes from Spalding Drive Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Marietta, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.

Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
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.
