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 North Shore – Danvers. We are the proud owners, Kristen TenBroek and Danielle Rodrigues. Kristen and her husband Trampas have three daughters (Dylan, Ella and Mia) and Danielle and her husband Pedro have a son and a daughter (Maxx and Madelyn). Kristen and Danielle know firsthand the balance between working and parenthood as well as the difficult decision it can be to entrust your child in the care of others.
We started this journey looking for something we could do together and are passionate about. Once we learned of the Primrose Mission to forge a path that leads to a brighter future for all children, we knew this aligned with our own vision and values.
Kristen has been a Registered Nurse for 15 years and has been working in Early Intervention and a developmental day school for the last 5 years. I have been able to be on both sides of the door. The parent leaving their child and the person who is ensuring that child is safe, nurtured, and happy. I am excited to create that space for your family so you can go to work, or about your day, assured that your children are in the most qualified hands with teachers and staff that will treat them like their own. In my free time I love to run and spend time with family and friends. I recently qualified for the Boston Marathon and am thrilled to be part of this race in the Spring!
Danielle has been a Physical Therapist for the past 20 years, starting in a public school district prior to transitioning to home care, working hand in hand with patients and their families across the lifespan (youngest patient was 5 days old and oldest was 103!). As my children entered elementary school, I became very involved as a parent leader for Destination Imagination Teams, a student-lead STEAM challenge program that sparked my interest in wanting to be more involved in childhood education. In my spare time I can be found on a sports field cheering on Maxx and Madelyn in soccer, basketball, baseball, or football. Triathlons have become my own sport of choice and plan to compete in 3 this upcoming season!
Our previous career experience in healthcare has prepared us to provide the safest possible environment for your children, especially considering the current Covid-19 pandemic. We truly believe in the Primrose statement “who children become is as important as what they know”. We are so excited to bring the Primrose curriculum and culture to the North Shore and look forward to you joining our Primrose Family!
We are conveniently located on 114, between Richardson's and Route 1. Unlike an ordinary daycare on the North Shore, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
Infant, Toddler, Early Preschool, Preschool Pathways, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, After School, Summer Adventure Club
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.

Preparing Pre K Students For Success in Learning and Life
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.
A window inside our Toddler classroom where the foundation for learning and growth is built to help children thrive academically, emotionally and socially in all the years that follow.
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.
How Our Exclusive Balanced Learning® Approach Comes to Life in Primrose Preschool Classrooms
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.
