Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
Thank you for your interest in Primrose School at Tatum. Owners Greg and Heather Legeza both attended the University of Cincinnati and moved to Arizona in 1997. Soon after they moved to the Peoria community, their son Derek joined the family and their daughter Kylie followed closely behind. Because of the lack of quality educational childcare in the area, Heather decided to quit her job as an elementary school teacher to stay at home with their children. Having a background in early childhood education, Heather knew what she was looking for a child care facility. After spending several days touring facilities, Heather found that the only thing that was available was basically, babysitting. Heather was looking for more, and it just was not available. After visiting a Primrose School in Cincinnati, Ohio, they knew Primrose was exactly what the Peoria community was in need of and decided to purchase a Primrose franchise in 2004. They were looking for more balance in their lives and a better quality educational opportunity for their children. Like so many parents in our community, they understand that a child's early years are crucial elements to a well rounded early childhood education. The Legeza's agreed that a private, preschool setting would benefit their family and the Peoria/Cave Creek/Phoenix community. Primrose Schools recognize the importance of balance to parents: the need to juggle successfully work and family life and to find educational childcare that provides peace of mind. Primrose's exclusive Balanced Learning curriculum accomplishes this with purposeful play and nurturing guidance. We are so lucky to have been doing this since 2004 and then opening Tatum in 2013. Thank you for your interest in Primrose School at Tatum. We are so excited to offer a quality educational private preschool to the Cave Creek/Phoenix community. We look forward to partnering in your child's education. Sincerely, Greg & Heather Legeza

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 a 360-degree partner in your child’s learning experience. Our Procare Solutions communication tool brings your child’s daily learning and classroom experiences directly to your fingertips every day!
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.
