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
Angela and Steve Richter and Heather and Bobby Moore are the owners of the Primrose School of Twin Hickory and the Primrose School at Westerre Commons. Friends since their college days, the two couples take a hands-on approach to managing the operations of the schools. Owning the Primrose Schools gave both couples the perfect opportunity to focus their professional efforts on providing a meaningful service to their local communities while making a very positive impact on the lives of their employees. Angela and Steve Richter moved to Richmond after graduating from Virginia Tech, and now live in Glen Allen with their 2 children. Angela earned a BS degree in Dietetics from VA Tech. She manages the foodservice program, helping Primrose students build healthy eating habits. Angela is also responsible for marketing and enrollment at both locations. Steve earned a BS degree in Accounting from VA Tech and an MBA from Duke University. After a career in accounting and finance, Steve now serves as our business and finance manager working behind the scenes to ensure things run smoothly. Heather and Bobby Moore live in Hanover County with their 3 children. Heather earned a BS degree in Early Childhood Education from VA Tech and a MEd degree in Reading from the University of Virginia. She taught in the public school system for 13 years. Heather is responsible for staff training, licensure and accreditation, and curriculum implementation. Bobby grew up in Powhatan and attended James Madison University. After a career working in the agricultural benchmarking industry, Bobby now oversees the facilities management and information technology programs at both Primrose schools.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Henrico daycare. Right down the road from the Colonnades West, we are conveniently located on Westerre Parkway.

Our Preschool and Pre-K children have really enjoyed working in the garden this year. Here they are picking our first batch of cherry tomatoes!
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.
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.
We are so proud of our students for all of the hard work they did for our annual Penny Pail project. Read below to learn more about the project.
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.
We are so excited to announce that Primrose was chosen as "The Best Childcare" by the Richmond Times Dispatch. We appreciate all of the support of our wonderful Primrose families!
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.
