Collin Child Magazine has chosen Primrose Schools as the 2018 Best Preschool for Families - Moms & Babies! Thanks to all of our great current and former students & parents!
Aloha from the Millers; Shawn, Nicole, Mia, and Hunter! We are Hawaii raised (well, mom and dad, anyway), Texas braised and blessed to be a part of the Primrose family since 2012. Our daughter, Mia, started at Primrose when she was 10 months old. As a new mom, it was hard to imagine going back to work, yet as I saw her blossom in so many ways, I knew I would be a Primrose parent for life. Today, Mia is 6 (going on 26), and her Kindergarten teacher is constantly amazed at how advanced her reading and math skills are. She is a reading helper, won the Eagle award at school for never giving up, and always having grit, and an award winning artist for her painting; a love she discovered while at Primrose. It was a no brainer to send Hunter to Primrose over a year ago, and he has thrived! Between correcting me on colors in sign language, and counting (he’s almost 2), I’m amazed every day at what his teachers have done to spur his love for learning. He is a quick study, and loves tools. He is daddy’s “assistant” when building and while he regularly runs away, he is always happy to help use a hammer or screwdriver (don’t worry, they’re plastic). Music is definitely his passion, and he regularly asks mommy to “dance” around the kitchen with him; especially when country is on. When we’re not in school, we’re in swimming lessons with the kids, gymnastics, or playing with science projects at home—our newest obsessions are a volcano experiment and rock tumbling as Mia is very much into geology and bugs. Mia loves to collect ladybugs and rolly pollies in our front yard, then set them free in the backyard. We play with our Pomerian, Mochi, and love to draw with sidewalk chalk. We’re also very busy in the kitchen, as mommy comes from a long line of chefs and Mia is a fantastic helper. When she’s not cooking or trying to do yoga at home, Nicole is a Senior Learning and Development Advisor at FedEx Office, a consummate watcher of This Is Us, a golfer in training and somewhat blogger in the attempt to capture recipes for the kids later in life. Shawn is a Service Advisor for Jaguar Land Rover, an avid golfer (when he has a free breath) and car enthusiast who is amazing at fixing things around the house. It comes in very handy when Nicole gets a wild idea to redecorate and hang things herself. Many a hole in the wall has been patched.... We love to travel, and can’t wait to go back to Canada and Hawaii. We just returned from a road trip from the Ozarks (during which we discovered Hunter gets very carsick), and will spend Thanksgiving in Disneyland. Right now, we’re excited to explore more of Texas. Having grown up in Hawaii, road trips weren’t something we got to do, so this is truly an adventure! Speaking of adventures—we’ve loved our Primrose adventures and are so very thankful for the teachers and staff who have kissed boo boos, wipes tears and noses, and loved and raised our children as their own. In this school, we’ve not only found a great place for our kids, we’ve made lifelong friendships as well. We regularly say we have yet to find friendships like the ones we have made here (that comes from all of us) and we look forward to many more years of fond memories with our Primrose families. Mahalo nui loa (Thank you very much)!
When my wife surprised me with the news that she was pregnant, a wave of euphoria washed over me.

The shift from preschool to kindergarten is a big milestone for any child. This huge step will be full of excitement, but it is also a time of new beginnings and routines. In the spirit of National Kindergarten Day, we asked three parents to share their secrets to success while their children were in kindergarten:
