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
Stephen and I moved to Richmond from London seventeen years ago.We have three children: Michael, a graduate of the University of Virginia, Alexandra (17), a junior at Collegiate, and Joshua (15), a ninth grader at Collegiate. I lived in Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom for fourteen years and held various senior leadership positions with General Electrics in Europe. Although I valued my career, I could not find balance between work commitments and family. While living in London we met a Primrose parent and I found my calling! I am thrilled to be the owner of these highly accredited full day preschools and I know how lucky I am to have such dedicated, talented, and qualified teachers on the team.
About the Area Director, Elizabeth Weddle:
I am even luckier to have Virginia’s finest Preschool Area Director, Mrs. Elizabeth Weddle! Elizabeth graduated from James Madison University with a BA in English and Early Childhood Education and received her Master’s Degree in Literacy, Training, and Curriculum from the University of Missouri. Prior to becoming the Area Director, Elizabeth was our Director and taught kindergarten and first grade for ten years. Elizabeth now oversees operations at both of our schools. She and her husband, David, are the proud parents of Jackson (15), a ninth grader, Preston (11) a fifth grader, and Hannah (7) a first grader. All three of her children are Primrose graduates so she has seen the benefits of our program from both managerial and parental sides.
We aren't just a daycare in Midlothian, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, just minutes away from the Waterford Shopping Center on Tredegar Lake Parkway.

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.
At Primrose Schools® Summer Adventure Club, learning meets fun through hands-on activities—like sports, robotics, and more—that encourage creativity, compassion and resourcefulness.
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.
