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
Hello! We are Bruce & Betty Vonderohe, the proud owners of the Primrose School of The Lakes at Blaine, Minnesota. As Parents and Grandparents, we have always been concerned about Quality Child Care for our children and grandchildren. We strongly believe in the importance that children be in a high quality child-care and educational environment that feels like home. Our daughters have been involved in child care, child education or child physical development activities for many years. One of our daughters, who had just had her first child, received a brochure in the mail from Primrose Schools. She convinced us to investigate the quality care and opportunities that Primrose presented. At the time, there were no Primrose Schools in Minnesota so we took a trip to Georgia for a visit to the Company and tour one of their schools. Education has always been a big part of our lives. We know that children benefit significantly more with quality classroom materials presented by certified and trained staff that have educationally based backgrounds. We were very impressed with the differences that we had seen at the Primrose Schools. The teachers were academically accredited, like leading elementary and secondary schools and it really showed in their focus on each child's development of character and values. They create a positive setting, allowing children to likewise respond positively. We felt Primrose would give us the opportunity to embrace our love for child-care education and development in a family business. Stop by and visit or give us a call. We look forward to partnering with your family to make this one of your best decisions ever for educational child-care. Bruce & Betty

We Are Looking For You!
Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
To celebrate National Grandparents Day, we invited all of our grandparents to join us for morning snack!
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.
Thank you, Mrs. Nadeau, for all of your hard work! We are so glad that you are a part of our Primrose family!

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.
Thank you, Ms. Hagen, for all your hard work and dedication!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Hello, we are the Wulff family: Mark, Soraya, Maya (2.75 years), and Malia (7 months). We have had to jump around to a couple of different daycares the last couple of years because of moving but also because of some bad experiences at different centers. We absolutely LOVE Primrose and the staff takes such great care of our kids! It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that you can drop your kids off in the morning and know that they will not only be safe but be loved on and learn so much! When we are not at school, we enjoy watching movies on Disney+ and going on walks with our dog Oakley to the park. Maya loves to sing, dance, play with her dolls, go outside, kick a ball and ride her bike. Malia is starting to crawl, has multiple teeth coming in and just loves watching her sister do anything and everything. Thanks for taking a little time to learn about our family.
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.
Good nutrition is a key!
