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
Find out how our time-tested Balanced Learning approach makes the difference.
At the Primrose School of Middleton, we are a family. We strive to build a community for our children to thrive in. Each month we choose one family to be the Family of the Month. We do this to introduce different families throughout the school giving families the opportunity to meet others. This September, our plan was to kick off the year, introducing you to the Kienbaum family. While we know they own the school and have girls in the school, you may not know more than that. Then the floods came, and things got shuffled and hard. But we are back, and it’s November, a month for giving thanks. So, we introduce you to the Kienbaum family, the Family of the Month for November. And the Kienbaums want to start with giving thanks. Thank you to all our families, to our amazing teachers, staff and Leadership. Thank you to the community. Thank you to everyone that had a part in keeping the “doors” open and getting us back home. As a family, the Kienbaums enjoy adventures, and with three young girls, even a trip to the grocery store can be an adventure. They enjoy going to the Dane County Farmers Market, water parks, playgrounds, camping with grandparents, and partaking in all things festive and seasonal. The Kienbaums love to travel and have many destinations on the bucket list. Myra would love to go to Hawaii. Eden wants to check out ToyStory Land at Disney World. Amanda and Mark enjoy trips to Chicago. And they all enjoy trips to Janesville and Nebraska to visit family. Before opening the Primrose School of Middleton, Mark and Amanda traveled a variety of career paths. While most of Amanda’s experience is in child care and early childhood education, she did complete her Peace Officer Education and Tacitical training to become a police officer in Minnesota. While she was never a sworn officer, she spent time working for a police department as a community service officer. Mark has spent his post college year working in print, sales, and corporate marketing. Amanda and Mark met through Primrose in Eden Prairie, MN where Amanda was the director for three years and Mark was Percy twice! Myra loves to arrange parties, set up shows and dances, and play school with her sisters. When Eden grows up, she says she wants to be a fire fighter! Although she’s only had two, Emery says her favorite holiday is Christmas! Our favorite Primrose Friend is Percy and we have plenty of “Percys” around to show for it!
We are thankful for grandparents... and pie! We enjoyed watching grandparents and grandchildren build pies together today for our Thanksgiving Feast tomorrow!
When I see pumpkins and other Thanksgiving decorations at the grocery store, I know that my favorite season is here – fall!
This week, we kicked off our annual Caring and Giving Food Drive. Our annual food drive connects our students to those that are in need by encouraging our students and families to work together to bring in money and food to donate to Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM). At Primrose, we pride ourselves on helping children to become active members in their community and throughout the world. Our Caring and Giving Food Drive helps our children learn about generosity and how to be kind towards one another as a way of life, without expectation or reward.
We know that juggling work and parenthood is tough.
We had so much fun celebrating Halloween this week. We had a spooktacular Parade of Costumes followed by Trunk or Treating! Thanks to everyone who was there to celebrate with us!
At Primrose we believe who children become is just as important as what they know... and today .... they were happy!! Welcome back everyone!
National STEAM Day is November 8 – and it’s no secret that we love STEAM in our Primrose classrooms!
Family... like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. Thank you to all of our grandparents that visited today!
Our students created a variety of self-portraits using different medias of art (paint, markers, stamps). The self-portraits helped students to get to know themselves and their friends even better. By observing and comparing their drawings, they learn what makes them alike and different!
As parents, we often go back and forth on how we feel about dressing our preschooler.
We are temporarily closed, due to the flood damage at the school. Please check back for frequent updates as we try to reopen our doors to our community. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to our owner Amanda. For IMMEDIATE response - email: email@example.com Phone: 608-841-1684
Congratulations to our School Chef, Nick, for being the Apple of our Eye this month! We are so lucky to have an amazing chef like you to cook for our students each day. Your can-do attitude and dedication to our school make you truly one of a kind! Thank you for building trusted relationships with our Primrose Family and approaching each day with joy! We are so happy to have you as part of our team, as a Primrose parent, and as a passionate member of our Primrose Family.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to early learning, and all of the different options for your little one may seem overwhelming.
What a beautiful day to celebrate our Grandparents!
Happy Labor Day! We sure can’t wait to see all our new friends tomorrow!
You never realize how important alone time and a good night’s sleep are until you don’t have them.
Percy teaches us COURAGE. Erwin teaches us FRIENDSHIP. So in the spirit of Happy Hearts we will continue with our Spirit Week this week.
Our students hosted a Royal Tea Party for our grandparents today! Tea and bagels, princes and princesses, crowns and stories. No better way to spend quality time!
