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
Welcome to the Primrose School of Norman! We are Collette and Nosa Akhimiona, the proud owners and operators. We are dedicated parents to two amazing boys, Paul and Uyi, who were fortunate to learn and grow in the Primrose school system and we love our beautiful community of Norman, Oklahoma. We became enthralled with the teaching method, unmatched curriculum, and dedication to developing each child emotionally and cognitively after our boys were enrolled as toddlers. Our experience at Primrose, alongside our shared passion for education and desire to bring the Primrose experience to more families motivated us to open a Primrose school in Norman. We understand the importance of instilling a love for learning during a child’s early years as we believe this is essential for building a new generation of bright citizens.
Before operating the Primrose School, we both spent time in the health care and oil and gas industries respectively. Collette practiced medicine as a nephrologist, having attended the prestigious Emory University in Atlanta and then completing her residency in internal medicine and fellowship in nephrology at Drexel University and Houston Methodist Hospital respectively. Nosa on the other hand enjoyed a career as a Petroleum Engineer with ExxonMobil after graduating from the University of Oklahoma. Go Sooners! Following his time at Exxon, he held senior management positions at Noble Energy. When away from the excitement of operating Primrose, we both love reading, cycling, golfing, basketball, and college football.
We believe that who children become is impacted by what they know, thus, encouraging a culture of learning is at the core of our Balanced Learning® curriculum. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers, which in turn encourages curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; a Primrose education is a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
Operating a Primrose franchise is fundamental in helping us give back to our community, and we are certain that the Primrose concept delivers on peace of mind in the search for a childcare provider that nurtures and lays a foundation for a robust education.
We are so excited to nurture your children and look forward to welcoming you to our Primrose of Norman family!
We are conveniently located on Healthplex Drive in the Norman Regional Hospital Medical Park West Development, located on the SW corner of I-35 and Tecumseh road. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Norman, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
We’re the Pardue Family. We have 3 horses (Dolly, Sugar and Shiner), 3 corgis (Penny, Tonka and Roux), and a Belgian Malinois (Mona) and our nearly 2 year old Ripp. We moved to Oklahoma from Louisiana in March of 2020 and fell in love with the area. We love riding around in our side by side when we aren’t riding horses or playing golf. Ripp’s favorite things are coloring, counting, scooby snacks and loving on all the animals. Love our primrose family!
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.
We want to thank everyone who came out to Spring Fling. We ended up making $750.00, and we donated it to Bethesda, Inc., We appreciate all the families that participated and came to support.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
We want to congratulate our 2023 Pre-K and Kindergarten classes on graduating. We are so proud of each and every one of you.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
We’re ready for summer. Are you? Join us for a season of Active Minds, Healthy Bodies, and Happy Hearts® as we learn and explore through STEAM, sports and fun in the sun!
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
Fall 2023-2024 Pre-Registration is officially begun. Please stop by and take a tour. We would love for your family to become a part of ours!
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.
We are working with Mission Norman to provide food to the homeless and hungry. Our amazing parents have brought their canned goods and we are so grateful for their participation.
Congratulations on the recent or soon-to-be addition to your family! This time in life is full of so many decisions – from which diaper brand is best to which pediatrician to call – and all of them can be nerve wracking. But for many parents, the decision that often causes the most angst is, “Who will take care of my child while I’m at work?”
When determining the best child care option for your family, tuition cost inevitably plays an important role. But it’s only one of the factors parents must consider, which is why researching and selecting child care options can feel like such an overwhelming decision.
Lately, everyone seems to be talking about STEAM. It’s a hot topic in the world of education and in the business community, but what does STEAM have to do with your preschooler?
There’s no greater joy than making a positive difference in the life of a child. At Primrose, we’re honored to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the more than 50,000 children in our schools, and it’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly.
Now more than ever, it is important that we nurture young children to be accepting of those who are different than them.
90% of a child’s brain develops in the first five years.
