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
The Primrose School of Gainesville is independently owned and operated by Jenifer and John McKnight. The McKnight's also own and operate the Primrose Schools of Buford and Braselton .All three schools are accredited by Cognia, a high distinction very few preschools can attain. They have been Primrose owners for over 21 years. The McKnight's were a Primrose family long before they became Primrose owners. Before joining the Primrose Family, John enjoyed a long and successful career as a Broadcast Journalist at both WSB and WGNX-TV in Atlanta. John has been honored with numerous journalism awards, including Emmy's and AP awards. He has also been honored for his long and active commitment to the community. Jenifer is a graduate of Georgia State University, and she previously worked as a writer, producer, and reporter at WGNX-TV in Atlanta. Jenifer and John have two children, Sean and Caitlin who grew up in Primrose Schools. John also has two older children, Jonathan and Andy. Jonathan has three children, Anna, Matthew, and Evelina. Anna and Matthew are also proud former Primrose students. Jenifer has served as the Advisory Council Chairperson representing all Primrose Schools. John has served as the Co-op representative for the Atlanta market, and even helped create it. The McKnight's are also the winners of the President’s Award! This high honor was awarded by the Primrose Schools Franchising Company for the outstanding reputation of the school, their commitment to the franchise organization, and to the communities they serve. They have also been honored each year for having schools that contribute among the highest in the system to the Primrose Children's Foundation through our annual Spring Fling Carnivals. All three of their schools serve as On Site Training Schools for new franchisees. The McKnight's are thrilled to bring Primrose Excellence to the Gainesville community.

Please help us congratulate Elizabeth Dlugasz - the Apple of Our Eye this month! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.
Often times the Holiday Season brings irregular schedules for your little ones. Here are some tips on getting back into a routine before school starts.
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.
