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! We are the proud owners, Rachel and Curt Van Emon, of Primrose School of Woburn!
In 2014, we opened Primrose School of Burlington, the first Boston-area Primrose School. We serve families from many surrounding Middlesex County communities - Woburn, Winchester, Reading, Arlington, Burlington, Bedford, Lexington and many others!
Our commitment to excellence in early childhood development has resulted in being one of five preschools in the United States to earn the Cognia’s Early Learning STEM certification, and also earning Primrose’s Rising Star and Franchisee of the Year Regional Award. We are delighted to open a second school and provide much-needed child care for the Woburn community.
We both have a passion for education and sought to be involved within the field after college, Rachel having graduated from Harvard University and Curt having graduated from Ball State University. Prior to 2014, Rachel served as the Director of Education for a 500-employee financial services firm. Rachel is also a member of the 2020 National Gold Medal Champion Masters Synchronized Skating team. As parents of two children, we understand the multitude of factors that are considered when weighing different childcare options and the importance of early education to later success.
We are dedicated to positively impacting children's lives, so they are ready not only for school but for life. We strive to create partner relationships with every family, align on educational objectives (with Personal Education Plans for each child) and provide parents with the peace of mind knowing they have chosen the highest quality care experience for their children.
The Primrose philosophy - “Who children become is as important as what they know” - is pivotal to our decision to be part of the Primrose family and build a second school. We are proud to be aligned with a brand that is consistently recognized as the leader in educational child care. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
We are excited to meet you and your family!
We are conveniently located on Lexington Street, right down the street from Cambridge Road and minutes away from Reeves Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Woburn, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
Infant, Toddler, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, After School
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.
Practicing kindness in and outside of the classroom will help children's character development. Learn more about nurturing compassion in this parent resource.
Each February, students at Primrose schools across the country collect their favorite books to donate to local libraries, hospitals, schools and nonprofit organizations.
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.
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.
