    Franchise Owner

    Hello, I am Stephanie Branscum, and my entire family and I are the proud owners of the Primrose School at Standley Lake in Westminster, CO. My husband and I were first introduced to the Primrose culture and curriculum when searching for quality child care for our sons. Within minutes of entering the school, I felt right at home and could sense the superior education Primrose taught in its classrooms. Primrose, with its proven curriculum and emphasis on social responsibility, was the best preschool we could have ever hoped for. Our boys were able to develop a sense of confidence in the classroom and advanced comprehension for learning that has remained with them throughout school. We were so impressed with the positive impact that Primrose had on our family that when I decided to make a career change, I knew education was the path I wanted to take and Primrose was where I wanted to make a difference. Quality education throughout the early years of a child's life makes a lasting impact on their character and future achievements in school and in life. By making quality educational child care more accessible to families in Westminster, CO., we hope to make a positive, lasting impact on our community for years to come. We look forward to meeting you! For more information about Primrose School at Standley Lake, located at 8430 W.
