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
Hello, I am Rita Strijker, the proud Franchise Owner of Primrose School of Virginia Beach South. As a parent and former educator – with a BA teaching degree in English and history from the University of Amsterdam and a Master of Science in organizational management and development – I value the importance of the high-quality, educational child care that Primrose Schools provides. My experience in research-based education and my career background have instilled in me a dedication to positively impacting children’s lives in a safe and nurturing learning environment.
My husband (a silent partner) and I discovered Primrose Schools after searching for a way to give children and families the best possible early childhood education experience. I was incredibly impressed with the unmatched curriculum, teaching method and passion of those involved with Primrose Schools. I quickly became an avid supporter of the brand and its dedication to partnering with parents to set children up for success in school and in life.
I am devoted to bringing the best possible child care experience to the Virginia Beach community and providing children with a solid foundation to excel in the future. We understand the importance of instilling a love of learning throughout a child’s early years, and we believe this is essential to building a new generation of bright citizens.
Primrose Schools is The Leader in Educational Child Care® and we are committed to delivering the best possible experience when it comes to your child’s education. We look forward to meeting you!
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Virginia Beach daycare. Minutes down the road from Red Mill Elementary School and Red Mill Farms Park, we are conveniently located on Fisher Arch.

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.
