Welcome to the Primrose School of Rogers, proudly serving the Twin Cities northwest metro communities of Rogers, St. Michael, Otsego, Dayton and surrounding areas. Laura and Scott Johnsrud are the local Owners and are thrilled to be part of the Primrose family, which operates 400+ schools nationwide with 17 in the Twin Cities metro area (and growing).
Laura and Scott live in Maple Grove with their two children, Taylor and Zach. We are avid fans of our kids’ sports teams (hockey, soccer, dance), and stay actively involved through both business and community endeavors. While our children are now teenagers, our family is well versed in the challenges associated with finding ongoing quality childcare where our children could thrive.As long time corporate employees, we have experienced the frustrations (and even distress) created by having to balance demanding careers with the desire for our children to have the most positive and optimal experience possible during their time outside of our care. Like all parents, we wanted our children to be safe, loved and nurtured. We wanted them to not only grow in their learning, but to also experience a fun and happy environment each day. Over many years, we experienced options that provided some of these components, but never the optimal experience incorporating all of these elements that we felt were so critical for our young children.
As Primrose entered the Twin Cities market and began to flourish and grow their presence, we were fortunate to become aware of the brand and its mission through personal family connections. Since Primrose has been so well received in our Twin Cities communities, we couldn’t help but take notice and wanted to know more. The belief that “Who children become is as important as what they know” is at the core of the exclusive Primrose Balanced Learning® curriculum. Our time-tested and research-informed 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 so excited about the children and families that we serve, the community that we are part of, and the exceptional academic and character building programs that our children experience. We welcome you to visit us anytime and look forward to growing our local Primrose family!
