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
It is our pleasure to introduce you to the Primrose School of Manhattan at East 82nd! Our school is now open and is the first Primrose in the greater New York City area. If you aren’t familiar with Primrose, then let’s start at the top - Primrose’s core principle is that who children become is just as important as what they know. Primrose’s time-tested (40 years!) Balanced Learning® approach emphasizes the development of the child through purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers. Our team encourages curiosity, confidence, and compassion. The program delivers more than a curriculum: it’s a life-changing, early learning experience for children and their families… and if you are familiar with Primrose then you know that we are the leader in early education and provides the premier learning environment in over 465 schools nationwide!
Our school is majority owned by Matt Grossman. Matt lives in New York City and is raising his children on the Upper East Side. He also owns three Primrose schools in Georgia. Matt’s operating partner is Wendy Jones, an accomplished entrepreneur who was previously on the Executive Team at Primrose headquarters in Atlanta.
Together, they are proud to bring an unparalleled early education experience to the families of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Our goal is to provide a diverse, inclusive environment for children and families that is representative of the thriving neighborhood in which we’re located.

We are conveniently located on East 82nd St, a short walk from the Bayard Taylor School and down the road from East Side Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in New York City, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
