Georgia Wiley is the proud owner of the Primrose School at Ironbridge Corner. Georgia and her family are longtime residents of Chesterfield County. Georgia has three children, twin sons Kalen and Breslin, and daughter Alexa.
Georgia received her Bachelor’s Degree from Old Dominion University and a Master’s Degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech. She spent 16 year at United Parcel Service in Operations and Engineering, and 10 years at Hewlett Packard as an Engineering Project Manager before deciding to pursue her dream of owning her own business.
For years the Wiley’s struggled to find quality care for their 3 children. So when Georgia started looking into opening a child care center, she knew exactly what she was looking for. She knew immediately Primrose was what she had been looking for her own children for all of those years.
“Primrose offers a Balanced Learning Curriculum. In addition, the programming offers social/emotional development, music, physical development, etc… As the owner, I am involved in the quality and execution of the schools programs on a daily basis. I recognize the importance of creating a safe, nurturing and healthy environment for the children. I also seek to create a work environment that allows our educators to excel in their passion for teaching young children, and the Primrose curriculum offers just that opportunity.
I love coming to the school every day and watching the children learn and grow. Hearing their laughter, watching them take their first steps, listening to the stages in their language development and watching them blossom into young people ready for the challenges of their world, is so rewarding. Now that the school has been open 9 years, I have watched many classes of Pre-K students graduate and confidently march off to Kindergarten after having enrolled them in the school as Infants.”

Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
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.
