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.
Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
Primrose is the leader in early education and care in Dallas and across the country and for the fifth consecutive year, Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 awards has ranked Primrose Schools #1 in the highly competitive child care category! We also ranked #67 overall out of 500. This recognition is a testament to our dedication to serving children and families in Dallas and around the country, despite this unprecedented year. Beyond proud and continually grateful to be part of this amazing community!
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 are grateful for our partnership with Church of the Incarnation allowing us a temporary home while we work through the rebuilding process.
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.
Primrose Preston Hollow sustained substantial damage in the tornado that hit our community on October 20, 2019. Our school at Preston and Royal will be closed for the foreseeable future. We are grateful for our partnership with Church of the Incarnation allowing us a temporary home while we work through the rebuilding process. We appreciate the ongoing support and encouragement we continue to receive from the entire Preston Hollow community.
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.
