As an occupational therapist in the public school system for more than 10 years and the mother of three, Susan Bartlett is now pursuing her dream to open her own preschool. Her and her husband Chris are bringing the sixth Primrose School to the Phoenix market and the first in Gilbert, AZ. "Kids say the darndest things" Susan said. "I have been working with kids my whole life and seeing that excitement in their eyes and their love of life makes it such a rewarding career." Looking for a way to combine Susan's experience in education with Chris' business background, the couple decided to open a business that would make a positive impact on the lives of the children and families in their local community. "We wanted to merge both of our skill sets and Primrose is giving us that opportunity", Susan said. "We also knew there was a need for Primrose in the area because the accredited curriculum and compassion of the teachers is exactly what we were looking for as parents, but couldn't find for our children." The Bartletts were first introduced to Primrose through friends who were exploring the franchise opportunity. After taking the trip to the company's home office and meeting with the team charged with developing the exclusive Primrose curriculum, it only took the Bartletts a few short months to commit to opening a new school to Gilbert. "We love this community and we're looking forward to seeing our students grow and learn each day they spend at our school. Being able to help them achieve their goals is very special and exciting for me." The Bartletts have lived in the Phoenix area for more than 20 years and are parents of three girls, ages nine, six and three. They spend a lot of time attending their children's activities, whether it be soccer, gymnastics or swimming.
We aren't just a daycare in Gilbert, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located just minutes down the street from Chaparral Elementary School on E Williams Field Road.

Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
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.
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.
