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
Welcome! I am Dr. Christa Stalcup, and my husband, Steve, and I are the proud owners of Primrose School of Winfield. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve the families of this community.
As a lifelong educator, I have worked in the field of education for over 25 years. With a doctoral degree in educational leadership, and varied experience as a classroom teacher, administrator, and university professor, I will use this skill set to ensure the Primrose Balanced Learning® approach is implemented with fidelity balancing purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. After much reflection, I decided that early childhood education is the educational area that gratifies my heart. My children and husband often call me a “magnet,” as young children seem to always find their way into my arms while waiting in line at the grocery store. I am deeply committed to the children, families and communities we serve. At Primrose, we believe that who children become is as important as what they know!
Satisfying the roles of a supportive husband and business partner, Steve is happy to accompany me on this Primrose venture. With over 28 years of experience as a financial advisor, helping clients achieve their financial/retirement goals, we are the perfect pairing to ensure a stable, nurturing and supportive environment for our Primrose children. This expertise will support the business side, although you are sure to see him around. He’s always up for a great conversation! As part of Primrose Schools, we believe in giving back. Steve continues to coach youth sports in our local community and works to build the children’s physical abilities and strong character. Having five “almost grown” children between us, we value our family and will value yours as well, working with you to build a trusted relationship. Building active minds, healthy bodies and happy hearts is our goal at Primrose School of Winfield. We are so excited to meet you and show you all that Primrose has to offer!
We are conveniently located just off Winfield Road just across the street from NorthWestern Medicine Dupage. Unlike an ordinary daycare in the Winfield area, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.

Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
We celebrate Erwin and his friendship in August. Erwin the dog is named after the Primrose School founders Paul and Marcy Erwin. He is a real crowd-pleaser who loves to help Primrose children honor and celebrate birthdays, including the birth of Primrose School! Erwin also loves to paint, draw, color, and do all sorts of art!
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.
