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
Beth Deasy, owner and operator of Primrose School of Thornton, believes that the greatest wish she can have for children is that they become adults who love who they are and what they do. Helping to develop such self-knowledge and passion for life in young children requires a delicate balance of nurturing and education. At Primrose School of Thornton, our faculty helps children unlock their potential so they may find fulfillment and success in life. We also partner with parents, bringing a sense of balance to families as they nurture, encourage and promote the educational, emotional and psychological readiness of the whole child. Previous to becoming a Primrose School owner, Beth worked at one of the Rocky Mountain region's largest law firms where she represented some of Colorado's largest businesses and developers. Having deep seeded roots in the early childhood education arena, she designed, built and operated a large, private preschool in Tucson, Arizona that was quickly recognized as the gold standard' for private preschool in the state. After learning she was expecting twins, she decided to build a preschool in the Denver area. She continuously heard from business and community leaders that Primrose was the BEST preschool provider in Colorado. After investigating other providers in the area and learning more about the Primrose philosophy of providing premier early childhood education, she agreed that Primrose was her choice, and decided to open the Primrose School of Thornton. Primrose School of Thornton is the culmination of a long term dream of hers. Beth is delighted to be able to offer you the best care and education for your children and is thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic community!

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.
At our Teacher Training Day, Primrose of Thornton was privileged with the opportunity to meet our keynote speaker, Dr. Laura Jana, the author of The Toddler Brain. Dr. Laura A. Jana draws on studies and stories from pediatrics, neuroscience, social science, and childcare, as well as the world of business and innovation to show parents how to equip their children with seven key skills.

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.
All parents strive to raise happy, healthy and productive children, but new research is changing what we consider to be the skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
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.
