From day one Primrose of Florham Park has never ceased to amaze me with the wonderful care of my son while at the same time accommodating his special needs. My son has eating difficulties, food neophobia or selective eating disorder. He only eats three things. My husband and I thought that being around other children eating together would encourage him to try new things. To our dismay from 9am until 4pm he ate nothing the first week. I met with the owner Rocco and director Diane the following week to discuss my concerns. I was in tears and thought for sure they would ask I take my son to a different school because of their food policies. Instead they put me in contact with a trusted pediatrician. Together we figured out a plan so we could all work together to get my son eating. A few days later I met with his teacher Ms. Arias to discuss how we could expose him to new foods. She is truly the most amazing teacher I have ever met! She works into their daily curriculum now- counting with food, painting and doing science projects with food. My son has a long way to but Primrose has taken a huge weight off our shoulders! I know every day he goes to school he is in good hands and I never worry. On the flip side he is also extremely bright and very academically motivated. I wanted to foster his love for learning and asked Diane if she could give me some suggestions on enrichment programs in the area. Well yet again she blew me away with her detail to this subject. Within a couple days I received an email with the names and links to several age appropriate enrichment programs in our area. Just amazing!!! Thank you so much Primrose!!! We couldn't be happier!
Dear Rocco, We would like to express to you how happy we are with everything at Primrose. Our daughters love their classrooms, teachers and they have been learning so much. It's not easy leaving them everyday but we know they are in great hands. Thank you for everything!
Hello Mr. Varma: I would like to take this opportunity to praise a member of your staff, Ms. Angela Esposito. Last Thursday, March 13 was not the best day for my daughter Angelica. She was being particularly difficult about coming to school – it started outside and she didn’t even want to get out of the car. Once I got her out of the car, she made it incredibly difficult for me to get her to the door. Before I could enter my code, Ms. Esposito came out to immediately assist me. With her quick thinking, she ushered Angelica over to a quadruplet carriage she brought out and offered my daughter a “buggy” ride through the halls. She was able to calm Angelica down, and made her quickly forget that she didn’t want to come to school. I was able to leave that day with no worries that her day would not progress in the manner which it began, and that she would have another great day at Primrose. On behalf of my wife and myself, I want to thank you for staffing your school with people like Ms. Esposito; it just affirms that our choice to send Angelica to Primrose was the correct one.
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.
