I took my son to see his pediatrician for his 18 month checkup this week. As with every benchmark checkup, the pediatrican asks many questions about my son's development. In preparation for those questions, I prepared a list of the words my son can say, all of the sign language he has learned, and all of the animal sounds he knows. So we get to the Dr office and the pediatrician starts asking a lot of questions. Of course, one of the questions was "How many words is Tytan saying now?" I smiled at him and said, "I actually prepared a list for you because I knew you would ask and I can't keep count!" To which he replied, "That's great! Is he saying about 10 words?" I said, "Ten? Let me show you this list." He said, "Yes, at about 18 months I expect them to be saying around 10 words." I told him that I have been amazed at Tytan's vocabulary since we enrolled him at Primrose. I showed the pediatrician the list of minimally 50 words that Tytan can clearly say, all of the sign language he knows, and all of the animal sounds he can make when you ask him to (What does a horse/cow/duck/monkey, etc say?). The Dr. was shocked! He said, "This is wonderful! He is very advanced for his age and he is even starting to form short sentences. This school he is enrolled in is great for him!" I agreed! As a parent, I always feel like I have the sweetest, smartest, cutest baby/toddler as most parents probably do but to hear a Dr. tell you that your son is advanced for his age is just an wonderful feeling. I cannot say enough great things about Primrose. My son absolutely loves it there, we love all of the staff, and we are amazed by his development in just the 4 short months he has been going to school there. Thank you Primrose!!! :)
When we moved from another area, Primrose at Waterside Estates was a lifesaver for me! I was so worried after moving that wouldn't find a new school that I loved as much as our former one, which my youngest had been at since he was 5 months old. Then I found Primrose. The director made us feel so comfortable and welcome, and was very accommodating to our schedule. It has been a great experience for the kids too, and they've learned a lot. Thank you Primrose at Waterside!
Six weeks before I returned to work, I had to make alternative childcare/early education arrangements as my plan A (only plan) fell through. We visited several schools and fell in love with the Primrose schools, specifically the one at Waterside Estates. Our oldest son has been there 3 1/2 years and the youngest for a year and a half a half and I recently realized how "spoiled" we are getting with the true quality experience we are receiving, as we prepare for our oldest to "graduate". We feel so blessed that our boys have such an amazing, nurturing and educational place to go every day. Each member of the staff goes above and beyond, and management ensures our kids are getting a well rounded experience in their education, nutritional and life experiences. They provide fun activities in the summer such as splash day and outside enrichment such as having a petting zoo come visit. We are so pleased with our decision and I cannot imagine my children anywhere else. In fact, our kids love it so much they ask to go on the weekends! The curriculum, healthy and loving environment, as well as the personal feel the school provides, is a winning combination and so for us, we are VERY satisfied customers!
I enjoy the fact that my children are treated as individuals and genuinely cared for. The teachers and staff take the time to get to know them and meet their needs. As a working mother, you have to be certain that your children are in good hands considering the enormous amount of time they spend in the care of others. I leave with no worries throughout day, and I return to a student who has learned many new things. You can't beat that!!! Thanks Primrose@Waterside!!!!!!!!!!
My husband I really try to have a culture of loving to learn at home, but since she started at Primrose, I feel like actually it’s our daughter that’s been bringing that energy into our house.
I genuinely feel like my daughter is learning something every second of every minute she’s here at Primrose.
