Primrose Schools Lays the Right Foundation for Excellence in Education
Research has shown the impact early childhood education can have later in life. Parents choose Primrose not only because of its educational offerings, but also because of the quality of the teachers who instruct and nurture their children. With a proven curriculum, the highest standards and a team of passionate people, there is no limit to what a kindergartner can achieve at a Primrose school.
A recent independent system-wide survey indicated kindergarten parents believe Primrose provided the foundation their children needed to be successful in elementary school. In short, Primrose produces results parents vouch for. Teachers track and share each child’s progress with parents throughout the school year through Primrose Schools’ comprehensive Balanced Assessment. An annual analysis of graduating Primrose students shows that they consistently score above average on a standardized testing measure of school readiness, scoring in the 90th percentile compared to same-age peers across the nation.
Proven curriculum balances academic skills development with physical and social well-being enrichment. Primrose Schools goes beyond the basic ABCs and 123s. The Balanced Learning® curriculum offers engaging experiences and lessons in literacy, mathematics, science and technology alongside activities emphasizing creative expression, social emotional development and physical health.
An essential component of the Balanced Learning® curriculum focuses on character development. Kindergartners participate in activities that help them learn how to be caring, compassionate and cooperative individuals. They also partake in community outreach programs that help them understand how to be responsible citizens.
National accreditation and academic assessments show positive results. Primrose became the first educational preschool company to earn national accreditation from CITA/SACS CASI (now part of AdvancED) ultimately reinforcing its long-standing commitment to high-quality early childhood education, paving the way for others to follow later. In addition to ongoing educational assessment, Primrose Schools implements a rigorous internal quality assurance program and requires its schools nationwide to become accredited. To earn this respected international accreditation, Primrose Schools opens its doors to rigorous external assessment and makes a commitment to continuous improvement in order to provide an outstanding learning experience for its students.
Trusted relationships are built between the parent, child and teacher. A teacher can have a lasting influence on a child’s life. According to the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, “children who develop warm, positive relationships with their kindergarten teachers are more excited about learning, more positive about coming to school, more self-confident, and achieve more in the classroom.”
Primrose partners with parents every day to provide a safe, secure, nurturing environment where children enjoy learning. With low student-to-teacher ratios, children receive the personal attention and guidance necessary to become happy, confident individuals.
