Ruthann Brown’s path to Primrose
I can remember sitting in class as a first and second grade student dreading being called on to read. I loathed school. School was a place for being teased by peers and being berated for not knowing the answer. I would turn bright red whenever I was called on and I sweat with nervousness about what others thought about me.
By the time I was in high school I had pretty well decided that I wanted to go into education. I can recall telling my family that I wanted to go into teaching and them laughing. They all knew how much I had hated school and could not believe that I would be interested in continuing that endeavor. I gave them the same speech I have told families at open house in my own classroom. I want to be in education because I hated school, and I never want another child to feel the way I did about reading and math. The root of my problems started before first and second grade. The problem began in preschool and kindergarten. I left kindergarten without the foundational skills needed to succeed in the following grades. It is impossible to read to learn when you never really mastered learning to read.
When I entered college at Utah State University I would talk about owning my own preschool and childcare facility as part of my life plan. I used to draw how I wanted the building to look and how the programs would be implemented. As I got further into the Elementary Education program my ideas for my school morphed to incorporate my new found knowledge of teaching styles and ideals. I knew that I would have to spend time in the classroom teaching, gain a little life experience, and get a Master’s Degree before I could stand in front of anyone and expect them to trust that I knew what I was doing.
Fast forward a few years. At this point I had changed districts, grades, got married and added to the number of members in our family. In 2012 I had to find a sitter or daycare for my son, Corbin, and I stumbled across Primrose in West Chester. I met with the director who gave me a tour and walked me through the curriculum as well as the programs offered to the older children. I was in shock. Here was the exact school I had doodled and dreamt about for years. My dream school had already been created and was successful. I enrolled the next month to start my Master’s Degree and began planning how I would join a Franchise that held the same expectations of educators, students, and parents as I did.
Now I have two boys and a little girl as well as my amazing step children! I am so excited to have them enrolled or involved through service at the Primrose School of Mason as well as our sister school in South Lebanon. I know you will feel the same level of excellence in education and childcare that I have experienced at our school.

Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
