Jennifer and Brad Poindexter have three children (Caroline 12, William 8, and Tanner 4) that have attended Primrose at Westerre Commons over the past 11 years. Their daughter Caroline started in the Young Toddler room shortly after Primrose Westerre Commons opened. They have a long history with Primrose as Jennifer attended the first Primrose School in Marietta, GA in the 1980’s when she was a child. Jennifer and Brad are very grateful for the wonderful teachers that have taught their children at Westerre Commons. They feel that Primrose has prepared each child for success in elementary school and in life because of the academic skills, the character, and the confidence they instill. Several special teachers have taught all three children! They will miss the Primrose community next year, when their youngest child Tanner goes to Kindergarten. In their free time the Poindexters enjoy traveling, being outside, playing putt-putt and shooting basketball hoops.

Staff and families from the Richmond area Primrose Schools participated in a fun 5K run to support Toys for Tots. We also had a great showing of Primrose children who ran in the Weeble Wobble fun run. We owe a big thank you to all of the families who donated toys this year. The holidays will definitely be happier for many children this year!
As a parent, I know it can be all too tempting to entertain your child with screen time.
We enjoyed having our Primrose families join us for our annual Thanksgiving lunch. The children enjoyed decorating their classrooms and talking about everything that they are thankful for.
We live in a fast world. Sometimes teaching a child to solve problems is as easy as slowing down.
The shift from preschool to kindergarten is a big milestone for any child. This huge step will be full of excitement, but it is also a time of new beginnings and routines. In the spirit of National Kindergarten Day, we asked three parents to share their secrets to success while their children were in kindergarten:

We are honored to have received this award again this year. We want to thank our Primrose parents for their support and for voting us "The Best"!
My daughter was a slow-to-warm-up baby and a well-behaved toddler. She never hit or pushed, but instead used her words — like the time she famously told me at age three, “Mommy, I don’t like the choices you’re choicing me.”

First place in the Favorite Daycare Category First place in the Favorite Afterschool program Category Second place in Favorite Annual School Event - Spring Fling Thank you to all of our families for their support!
Play is a crucial part of the social, emotional and imaginative development of young children, but not all play is created equal!
