When we found Primrose @ Pinnacle, it seemed too good to be true. But we kept being drawn back. Initially, I'd canceled our tour, because the cost was a bit overwhelming. Then something happened that I'd never imagined! Ehab called me to ask me why. Never had ANYONE ever done that! He truly wanted to ask what he could do to try to get us to come see them. I said that it was the idea of drooling over a Porche but on a Yugo budget. Between their school and the company as a whole, we were awarded a partial scholarship to be able to send our daughter there. From day one, our daughter was excited to go to "school" and learn. Within the 1st week, she was absorbing and learning at a very high rate. And quickly becoming a class favorite friend. Always willing to help and be friendly. We always knew that, but the environment helped foster this within her. It's a hard profession, being a day care provider and educator to a young child. And along the way, this school brought into our lives some absolutely wonderful people that not only took the day to day care of these children very seriously, they also took care in developing a relationship with us a an entire family unit. These teacher are no longer with the school - but they have left a lasting impression on our daughter and our family as a whole. Add to that, it's because of Primrose @ Pinnacle that we've made some very dear friends. Our daughter is now finishing Kindergarten and the well rounded education she received during her time at Primrose laid the foundation of her love of learning. She loves the challenge as well. Every time we drive by - to this day, my daughter excitedly says, "Prim-a-rose!" Thank you for setting the tone of her love of learning and excitement to share with the world!!
I have both my boys (4 years and 18 months) enrolled at Primrose for a few months. I must say they are getting a quality education by wonderful caring involved (and amazingly patient) teachers!! We all LOVE Primrose!! The best educational choice I "stumbled" into making. :D I have finally found a place that interacts and knows the importance of taking advantage of those early years to spark the love of learning. My littlest one is so engaged and it is obvious that he LOVES his teachers. I feel at ease in the love and individualized attention that I know he is getting everyday - it shows in his smiling face. I see it in the intellectual leaps and bounds that he surprises me with daily. He had a rough start so I was concerned there would be significant delays - but I am honestly at ease that his milestones are monitored and they will adjust to meet his needs. I truly wish I had known about Primrose at Pinnacle when I first moved to Columbus - it would have saved me many months of stress about the care of my children. Primrose is the best!
Switching my daycare provider to Primrose has been the best parenting decision I have made in my child's 22 months on this earth. Let me tell you why: at Primrose they teach not watch. The structure of the day keeps my child focused and well behaved. The class room setting really takes "Daycare" out of our families vocabulary.. When Lillian goes to Primrose she goes to school. Like an extension of our own family, my wife and I rest at ease our daughter is there.
I can not say enough good things about Primrose School at Pinnacle. I have been home with both my children (3.5 years and 21 months) since they were born. Picking a school was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I am very particular about who watches my daughters and my first instinct when I walked into this school was that I could leave my children here and know that they will be SAFE, their needs will be met and they would thrive socially and educationally. The staff put me at ease right away. The first day there my husband and I received an email for each of our daughters with their pictures and an update of how their first day was going. That was priceless. We continually receive notification about what is going on at the school each week with reminders of what events are coming (picture day, book fair, parents night out, etc). This is very helpful since life can be busy with work and two young children. The teachers are fantastic with genuine interest in making the children and us parents feel comfortable Any time I express a concern or ask the teachers to pay particular attention to something, they do without hesitation and report what I ask everyday. Even if it means keeping track of my youngest's BMs and milk intake :-) Choosing this school was the best decision for this family!!!!"
We started with Primrose January 2011. I had enrolled my daughter in another daycare and wasn't very happy with the overall feel of the daycare. I did some research and set up a visit with Primrose at Pinnacle. From the moment I walked in I knew this was a great place and where I wanted to send my daughter. The staff was friendly, energetic, and dedicated to child care and development. I was impressed by the owners and their passion for children. I can't say enough about the staff. They are truly special individuals who deliver outstanding care. I am blessed to have them care so deeply for my daughter. I refer everyone I know to Primrose and can't wait to continue the wonderful journey of my daughter's life with them. Thank you for all you do!
My husband and I are very happy with our decision in choosing Primrose! Our son has already learned so much! The teachers and staff are great; most importantly, I’m not concerned or worried about his well-being or safety. I feel secure in knowing he’s well taken care of, all the while he’s learning and making friends! Thank you, Primrose Family!
We love everyone! My only constructive feedback is for the leadership team, I wish they did a better job of communicating staff changes. These are the people with our kids and It’s a little off putting seeing new faces, but not knowing who they are and what role they play with kids. Similarly with support teacher or others who leave-communication and information would be helpful.
The staff and teachers are wonderful! We are so happy with the education and care our daughters have received.
My daughter has so much fun there and is learning so much. All of the teachers and staff have been wonderful to her!!
I am very pleased with the pre-kindergarten program thus far and I feel that my child is on track to succeed in kindergarten nex year.
The teachers and staff are caring and really good to work with! My son learned a lot from Primrose and made a lots of friends along the way.
My daughter has amazing teachers in Pre K 1. She has learned so much and grown so much this year. The staff has done a good job keeping parents informed about what is going on.
We couldn’t be happier with the love and care our child receives here. His education is top notch and our only regret is we didn’t start sooner.
Love Primrose and the staff! Love that its a safe place for my child to go after school and see friends. 2 suggestions for improvement: outside time when weather appropriate - they often don't go outside until 5:00. They have been in classroom all day, it would be great if they could play sooner once getting to Primrose. The other suggestion is that sometimes the class size seems very large for the room - its loud and often chaotic. I wish there was a way to break up room into age groups K-1 and then 2-4. This would allow for more age appropriate activities.
Since our first experience with Primrose our family has felt welcomed, informed and supported. It was a difficult decision for us to leave our in-home provider and we couldn't be happier with the experience our PreK son is receiving. From the courteous office staff to the exceptional teachers (Ms. Reed and Ms. Curtis), we are blessed to have the opportunity to send our son to Primrose.
