Welcome to Primrose!
We are Christie and Dave New, and we are the proud new owners of the Primrose School at Holly Grove! We are excited to be a part of such a wonderful community and Primrose family!
As dual working parents ourselves, we know how important it is to find a loving and safe environment that will nurture your child and provide them with opportunities to develop academically and as a person. Prior to owning a Primrose school, Dave received a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Ohio University and has worked in senior management roles most of his career for companies like General Electric and Highland Industries. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and have worked in the medical industry for more than 20 years in areas of critical care, clinical research and risk management.
With a life-long desire to pursue our own business, we found our calling with Primrose! With four girls in high school, we know firsthand the importance of helping children develop a strong character, and we were thrilled to find a school that reflects our beliefs in that. We too have taught our girls “who they become is as important as what they know,” just as Primrose does. We feel very strongly that Primrose Schools Balanced Learning® curriculum offers the perfect formula for a well-rounded program.
At the Primrose School at Holly Grove, we are committed to partnering with parents and teachers to nurture and encourage your children to become the best they can be. We feel very strongly that Primrose Schools Balanced Learning® curriculum offers the perfect formula for a well-rounded program.The research-based curriculum blends teacher-guided learning and child-initiated play with a focus on character development to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion in all children.
We are excited to continue to provide the Holly Springs community with a safe, caring environment where children can grow Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®.
We aren't just a daycare in Holly Springs, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located right down the road from Holly Grove Elementary School on Avent Ferry Road.

At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
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.
At Primrose Schools® Summer Adventure Club, learning meets fun through hands-on activities—like sports, robotics, and more—that encourage creativity, compassion and resourcefulness.
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.
We remain committed to providing a clean and safe environment where children can thrive. Our school uses an indoor air purification system designed to reduce the pathogens from the air supply through the HVAC system, helping to limit the spread of viruses. This is just one component of the measures we have put into place to help keep our families and staff healthy and safe. See more health and safety protocols here.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
What an honor to be recognized by a great cause and organization like Meg’s Smile Foundation. They are truly making a difference in our community and we are happy to be a small part of that. Meg's Smile focus on giving "wishes" to seriously ill children in our community.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
