Keri and Carl Stoltz


My name is Keri Stoltz and my husband Carl and I became Primrose franchisees with the goal of bringing a Primrose School to the Atlanta in-town area. We live in Morningside and watched many of our friends struggle to find quality child care and early childhood education programs in-town. We became parents ourselves when we welcomed our beautiful baby boy on November 11, 2008 and faced the same challenge. After more than 10 years as a corporate employee with Primrose Schools, I made the move to the franchise side and Carl and I opened the Primrose School in Midtown. The true challenge to bringing Primrose to the in-town neighborhood was site location. After a long search and many meetings with developers, we were excited to be a part of Colony Square at the corner of Peachtree Street and 14th Street. Our campus is a bit of a departure from the standard Primrose School you would find in the suburban areas. (There are over 350 Primrose Schools serving families across the country and 40 right here in suburban Atlanta.) There may be some things that are done differently to meet the needs of in-town families, but be assured that the delivery of an accredited, quality educational child care experience is consistent with the Primrose standards of excellence. We are now a family of four and celebrate serving Midtown families since 2010. We have a blast working with a professional and fun group of ladies who dedicate their time and attention to over 170 adorable little boys and girls. We feel blessed to have developed wonderful relationships with our over 100 families and look forward to continuing to provide excellent care and service through the Primrose School of Midtown.

    Alike and Different

    As part of the Alike & Different unit, our students are studying their reflections. From our infant classroom to the Pre-Kindergarten, students are making observations about what they see when they look in the mirror and discussing their unique traits. What do we see?

    Celebrating Black History Month

    To bring Black History Month to a close our amazing preschool teachers wanted to teach our students how kids can make a difference! They learned about a young lady named Mikaila Ulmer, who at only four years old got an idea to sell lemonade to help bees 🐝 Mikaila was afraid of bees, but once she learned how much they helped our ecosystem she wanted to help! She took her grandmother’s lemonade recipe and added honey! She created Me & The Bee’s Lemonade!!
