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, I am Kim Barnett, the proud owner of Primrose School at Macland Pointe.
I was first introduced to Primrose in 2009, and immediately fell in love with the way that Primrose brings the best in educational child care to families and children; through a curriculum and focus on character development and partnerships formed with parents. I understand the importance of working with the staff and the families to constantly strive to create the best environment for children. Whether its social emotional development, curriculum, nutrition or a safe environment, every aspect needs to be at its absolute best in order to help children develop and grow.
Prior to becoming a franchise owner, I was a Primrose teacher. I joined Primrose School of East Cobb at Sprayberry in 2009 as a Kindergarten teacher, before becoming the school’s executive director. Having earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern University, I have taught all ages from infant to adult and have over thirty years of experience in a career crossing education and business operations.I am committed to helping teachers of young children provide a positive, nurturing environment where children can develop a natural love of learning.
“Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Marietta daycare. Right down the road from Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and Cheatam Hill Elementary School, we are conveniently located on Macland Road.

Practicing kindness in and outside of the classroom will help children's character development. Learn more about nurturing compassion in this parent resource.
Each February, students at Primrose schools across the country collect their favorite books to donate to local libraries, hospitals, schools and nonprofit organizations.
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.
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.
