The Primrose Kindergarten students celebrated the upcoming holiday with our favorite friends, the residents at the Windsor! They all sang holiday carols together, played bingo and decorated cookies! As always, it was a great visit!
On behalf of our Primrose families and staff, I was very honored to deliver all of the generous, wonderful presents to the Salvation Army for our three adopted families. Our three families consisted of ten children total. Each child received four presents from their wish list as well as a clothing outfit and shoes - Sixty presents altogether! All of you were so considerate and generous with your gift choices and we can only imagine the smiles on the beautiful faces of each of these children as they open these wonderful gifts thanks to you all! Every year we feel very honored to have this wonderful opportunity to reach out to our own community, to those who are less fortunate. Every year our families and staff go above and beyond graciously supporting this very worthwhile initiative and we cannot thank you enough. We are all so very blessed in so many ways and there is no better feeling knowing that you contributed to making a child's holiday very special. We all know what a blessed and joyous holiday it will be for Natalie, Kimberly, Adriel, Aleyshka, Hilary, Gizelle, Kevin, Amber, Sarah and Christina! A very, very heartfelt thank you for everything you all do! We could not be more blessed with this wonderful Primrose Family!
Ready for a menu change? Here's what to expect.
The Private Kindergarten students visited The Windsor Retirement Living Facility for their Meet and Greet to kick off the school year! Together, the students and Windsor residents made crafts, had snacks and enjoyed getting to know one another. Primrose has partnered with The Windsor for over ten years as part of our Adopt-a-Grandparent character development program. Throughout the remainder of the school year, the students and residents will spend many special times together including, trick-or-treating at The Windsor, Thanksgiving, Holiday Party, Valentine's Day and many more. We love our special friends at The Windsor!
The Primrose students had a great time at our annual Celebrating Cultures event on Friday, September 29, 2017! The children paraded through the playground proudly wearing child-created costumes and accessories representing the culture in which they were celebrating. The students all came together in unity to celebrate diversity, joined hands and sang together, It's A Small World.

Our Private Kindergarten class took a field trip to Barnes and Noble today to celebrate Read Across America Day! We had such a great time! From the tour, to the crafts, the show and being read stories - it was a GREAT DAY!
Thank you to all of our wonderful families for making Og's Bountiful Books such a success! We collected 463 books! Today, we delivered them to Mothers Helping Mothers where the less fortunate children in our community can enjoy these books and reading as much as we do! Thank you again!
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.
Congratulations to the Crom Family, the Family of the Month for January!
Congratulations to Mrs. Batts, the Apple of our Eye for January!
Today our Private Kindergarteners did their most favorite thing... celebrated Valentine's Day with their very special friends at The Windsor! Ahead of time, the students hand-made Valentine's cards for each of the residents. Individually, the students spent the morning making a craft along with their Windsor friend. The craft was a picture of the student in a decorated frame for the Windsor friend to hang in their apartment. We LOVE our special relationships with our Windsor Friends!
Is it going to be Billy the Duck or Percy the Rooster we elect as our next President of the United States? What will we have for afternoon snack - will it be goldfish crackers or frozen yogurt? On November 8th, the Private Kindergarten students participated in Election Day at Primrose! The students had an election of their own facilitated by Manatee County Commissioner, Mrs. Vanessa Baugh! She spoke to the students about the importance of voting and she also had the pleasure to announce the two winners! And, the winners are Billy the Duck and Frozen Yogurt! A great day full of fun and learning!
This photo truly defines the meaning of our exclusive Adopt-a-Grandparent program...Kieran, one of our Kindergarten students established a relationship with a Windsor resident, Lorraine, at our first get together there at the beginning of the school year. Because of their special bond, Kieran presented Lorraine with a card she had made for her, in anticipation she would see her today. Inside the card it reads, "I love you, Lorraine"... so sweet Kieran, such a sweet little girl and so special for both Kieran and Lorraine.
On Tuesday, the Primrose children tossed their magical pumpkin seeds into the Primrose Patch, and....on Wednesdays, the pumpkins grew! The wonder and amazement in their eyes was just precious!
