Make the First Five Years Count

We’re more than a daycare in Meridian. We know how young children learn best, which is why our Balanced Learning® approach combines plenty of purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers.

Brad & Brenda Shafer

We are the proud owners of Primrose School of North Meridian, Brenda and Brad Shafer.

After being frustrated with limited learning growth at a daycare in KY for our daughter, Primrose was recommended to us. 

From the first moment, we perceived a significant difference.  A personal and friendly greeting by the Director, the cleanliness of the building, seeing happy children and teachers – everything was at a higher level and clearly, centered on the children. 

Our Daughter THRIVED at Primrose!  She was making leaps in her learning, she was excited to go every morning, her teachers were kind and the daily pictures/check-ins through the Procare app created peace of mind and gave us a window into her day. 

Upon learning of a pending move to Boise, we sought a Primrose for her and learned Primrose was not yet in ID.  Recalling Primrose was a franchise, we inquired, learned more about providing a meaningful preschool experience and initiated the process.

Brad has worked in education his entire career and has two degrees in Education.  Brenda conducted the research when seeking care for both of our children and understands key differentiators.  Brad is the on-site owner/operator and Brenda (a former Nurse) will continue her health law practice.  Both Brenda and Brad are military veterans.

We have two children and love family activities such and skiing, games, spending time with Grandparents and daytrips.  We love living in Boise and in Idaho! 

“Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® curriculum. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.  

We are excited to meet you and your family!
