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 know how to keep our toddlers happy, learning and engaged! Email us firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your tour!
Why We Chose Primrose: Hello! We are the Stucky family. My name is Corey Stucky and my wife’s name is Catherine. Our children are Jillian, who is now 6 years old and Jensen, who is 3 years old. We are proud to say that both our children are Primrose kids! There are several reasons why we chose to send our children to Primrose School. Having travelled extensively in my previous employment, I was aware of the Primrose brand through friends and family who had experienced Primrose positively in other cities. My wife also knew of Primrose through her friends’ experiences as well. Admittedly, out of all the other choices we had in our area, the reasons we finally selected Primrose for our children boiled down to about 3 things; 1) Primrose was ideally located for our childcare needs, affording us a streamlined route between work and home for which our children could be nurtured. 2) Primrose provided the hours we needed for childcare without a drop-off/pick-up restriction that exceeded our ability to honor or maintain. As working parents, we needed a facility that would be open before we are due for work, and after we are scheduled to leave work. Primrose met this need. 3) Primrose was built as an actual school, not simply a converted building or secondary-use facility. It was founded on solid principles focused on developing children to their actual potential. It included transition classrooms and classes, active work assignments allowing our children the opportunity to grow socially, learn phonological skills, self-awareness, pre-writing skills, pre-math skills, and cognitive/critical thinking skills, and share a pre-meal prayer among others. Primrose provided a continuous assessment program from which to evaluate the learning of our children. It reinforced values within our children that are also important to us; a. Be kind to yourself and others b. Use your listening ears and your looking eyes. c. Keep your hands and your feet to yourself. d. Use your walking feet and inside voices in school. To say that I can share the “Rules of the Roost” with you simply means that Primrose doesn’t just work for our children; it works for us, too! We have since learned and experienced that Primrose truly partners with you for your child’s care, well-being, and learning. And most importantly, Primrose provides a platform from which one can offer parental feedback without the risk of indignation or pretense simply because of differing viewpoints. And, perhaps one of the most important things, it provides daily pictures and notes about curriculum and specific feedback on our children that we can share with grandparents, siblings, and others who might enjoy seeing the kids daily and learning about what they are doing. Simply put; we’re thankful that we found Primrose, and appreciative of what Primrose has given to us in kind. Our children, and our family, are better for it. Sincerely, The Stucky Family Corey, Catherine, Jillian & Jensen
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.”
At Primrose Schools, we love Science class! The "Moon" topic was a big hit. We made moon dough, we painted and even made 3-D models!
That's right, we have done it! Our children are growing socially and academically!
Play is a crucial part of the social, emotional and imaginative development of young children, but not all play is created equal!
Our preschoolers had a blast participating in Kansas Day activities! Thank you Primrose teachers for making learning fun!
"Our daughter, Emma, has been attending Primrose Wichita East for 2 ½ years. In that time, she has benefited in learning from the most professional and passionate teachers and staff that we have ever seen. We have observed a high quality, balanced learning environment from the day one. The curriculum is impressive coupled with plenty of play time and hands on activities for the kids. Primrose has set our daughter up for a lot of success in the future.”
Now if only they would stop drawing on the walls...
School is out! Join us for Spring Break Camp!
Pretending is important in child development. Children learn about themselves and the world. Dramatic play experiences are some of the first ways children learn about their likes and dislikes, their interests, and their abilities. They experiment with role playing and work to make sense out of what they’ve observed. At Primrose Schools we give our children these opportunities!
How do you raise a happy and confident girl? One father shares his valuable lessons.
Our infants and toddlers explored painting their reflection during Early Art Master program. Learning new concepts by exploring familiar items with their senses is important with infants and toddlers because the familiar toys provide the context for the new concepts. We have started enrollment for 2018! Call 670-0791 to learn how to join our family!
When Primrose School leaders and educators go out: We love to get out and explore everything that Wichita has to offer! Our team tried out escapology this past weekend. Some of us escaped and some of us didn't, but that is ok.....we had fun doing it!
Who says eating healthy can’t be fun? Making easy snacks is a great way to instill healthy habits in your child while building skills in the kitchen.

Like many families, you are having to make a decision on School for your 3 year old. What to do? Send him/her to a Big Elementary School (with an early childhood education) or to a smaller Early Childhood School that focuses on Early Childhood Education. Our best recommendation is visit Big Schools and Early Childhood Schools to see which one you think will give your child the best foundation. Here are some great questions to ask and think about.
"London has been at Primrose School of Wichita East for almost 4 years, and it has been a terrific fit for us! The first time we visited Primrose we were immediately impressed by the friendliness of the staff, a structured program, and many other great qualities that made our choice in Primrose an easy one. London has flourished both socially and academically, and we are confident that she is more than ready for the great big world of Kindergarten next year! She loves her friends and teachers, and looks forward to going to school every day! Thank you Primrose for taking awesome care of our precious little!"
