Hello, we are Ashley and Charles Gray, the proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School at Mountainside. As parents we value the importance of the high-quality, educational child care that Primrose Schools provides. The significant role education has played in our own lives has instilled in us a dedication to positively impacting children's lives in a safe and nurturing learning environment. When we discovered Primrose Schools, we knew there was an immediate need in our community and New Jersey to provide children and families the best possible early childhood education experience. We were impressed with the unmatched curriculum, teaching method and unique culture of Primrose. We quickly became avid supporters of the brand and its dedication to partnering with parents to set children up for success in school and in life. We are devoted to bringing the best possible child care experience to the Mountainside community and providing children with a solid foundation to excel in the future. We understand the importance of instilling a love of learning throughout a child's early years, and we believe this is essential to building a new generation of bright citizens. Primrose Schools is The Leader in Educational Child CareŒ¬ and we are committed to delivering the best possible experience when it comes to your child's education. We look forward to meeting you!
We aren't just a daycare in Mountainside, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, just minutes down the road from Echo Lake Park and across the street from the Urgent Care Center at Summit Medical Group on Springfield Avenue.
