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
My husband Travis and I would like to welcome you to Primrose School of Woodbury. We are the proud owners and operators of the Primrose School of Woodbury. We have 2 beautiful children (Primrose School of Woodbury graduates) who attend East Ridge High School in Woodbury. Our love for family and passion for community are what encouraged us to open our Primrose School. After researching child care and early learning options while living in Denver Colorado when our son was born, we stumbled upon Primrose Schools and were so impressed with the level of care, and education provided to the children there. We moved home to Minnesota in 2004 to be closer to our own families. When we couldn't find a program that compared to, or exceeded our Primrose Schools experience, we decided to build the Primrose School of Woodbury. We first opened our doors in October 2007, we have found great satisfaction in working with high-quality, dedicated early learning educators to provide the nurturing and educational environment we so firmly believe lays the foundation for future success. We continue to be amazed by Primrose's outstanding approach to education, the accredited curriculum, enrichment and character development programs. We believe in the importance of early literacy, and are proud of our Primrose Schools partnerships with many local and national non-profit organizations, including Save the Children, MN Safe Kids Coalition, Gillette Children's Hospital, Feed My Starving Children and many more. We believe our partnerships with these organizations will be forever valuable in teaching children that no matter how big or small, we all stand to make a difference in the world. We believe so strongly in the power of our community, and believe our Primrose School will grow leaders. Woodbury is our home, we live just down the road and we appreciate seeing our neighbors attend Primrose School with us. We're at Primrose every day, and take great pride in bringing an exceptional academic program to our community. We look forward to meeting you and to Primrose exceeding your expectations.
We aren’t just a daycare in Woodbury – we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located just minutes down the road from Brookview Elementary School on City Walk Drive.

Congratulations to our November Family of the Month, the Nunes-Alvarez Family! We have loved being a part of Miguel's education journey and are so thankful for your family! "Our family’s heritage is a blend of Spain and Brazil. At our house we speak Portuguese. Just over a year ago, we exchanged the sunny beaches of Brazil for the beautiful and snowy Minnesota. Here, it’s just the three of us: Eric (dad), Barbara (mom), and the lively two – year – old, Miguel. Both of us are engineers, and our move to the USA was driven by our jobs within 3M. Our days are filled with exploring the great outdoors on hikes, going to playgrounds, cooking together, reading books, or bridging the distance by Face Timing with our beloved family, who are dearly missed. At Primrose, Miguel loves to engage in any water related activities, pretend cooking in the play kitchen and running outside."
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.
Congratulations to these lovey ladies on celebrating their anniversaries this month! We appreciate all you do for your families and students in your care. From our two-year-olds all the way to our Pre-K students, you do it all! Thank you for your constant dedication and flexibility each and every day!
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
Congratulations to our November Apple of Our Eye, Mr. Sager. We are so happy to celebrate all your successes this month. Thank you for your consistency with our school age students and your dedication to our younger students during the day. They adore you so much! We appreciate all you do for your Primrose family!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Happy Veterans Day! Thank you for your commitment, service and bravery to our country. We are beyond grateful for all that you've done and continue to do.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
Happy Anniversary month Ms. Wanna! Thank you for being such a consistent figure in our Pre-Kindergarten program. You do such an amazing job supporting both of our classrooms and we know the students appreciate you for being you. Keep up the great work!
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.

Congratulations to our September, Family of the Month the Sonbol Family! Thank you for being a part of our community! "Our family includes my mom, me, and our dog, Zeak, who my mom says is my brother, but he's a DOG, so there's that. My mom is a law professor and isn't super handy, so it's a good thing I'm a plumber and general handyman who can take care of fixing stuff around the house and managing my many DIY projects. We love to build Legos, put together puzzles, bake cakes, go fishing, have picnics at the park, and sample local honey. My favorite thing to do at Primrose is everything - from circle time, to learning how to read and do math in my head, to being line leader, to reciting the pledge of allegiance, to playing outside, and last but not least, getting to share my favorite part of the day! We are so very fortunate and grateful to be part of the amazing family at Primrose School of Woodbury!"

It's been a busy day here at Primrose Woodbury! We are so luck to have a shared holiday today between St. Patrick's Day & Red Nose Day. Not only have we been setting traps for Leprechauns (No, we haven't caught one yet!), we've also been having conversations about the real struggles of childhood poverty. Our students enjoyed all the fun St. Patrick's day activities our teachers worked hard to provide and found themselves being silly with Red Noses this afternoon! #primroseproud #stpatricksday #rednoseday
We are so lucky to spend St. Patrick's Day with our precious little leprechauns at Primrose School of Woodbury 🍀

Congratulations to our October Apple our Eye, Mrs. Snyder! Thank you for being a part of our Primrose family over the years! We appreciate all you do for you Kindergarten families and your coworkers.
Yesterday, Primrose Woodbury was excited to celebrate the first ever National Day of Belongingness. Primrose school teachers do so much more than encourage skills like reading and writing. They help children feel included and valued. Because when children feel that they belong, the effect is powerful. Fostering a sense of belongingness happens every day in Primrose classrooms, and the children have a lot to do with that! By sharing, playing and simply spending time together, children learn to celebrate the ways we are all alike and different. Thank you so all our wonderful families for bringing this day to life. We loved seeing all your special pictures, activities, recipes, etc. come to life!
We are celebrating Mrs. Guertin this month! Not only is she our Apple of Our Eye, but she is also celebrating her 11th anniversary today! Be sure to congratulate her!

This week, children were briefed on this week’s mission: It is a “top-secret” mission into outer space and the children must use the Dash robot to help bring our Primrose Friends back to their home planet, Planet Primrose! We learned that NASA has a control center and each of their jobs is very important. We were able to choose our own mission control jobs for this week’s top-secret mission. Ask your child what Mission Control job they chose! #readysetrobotics
Ready, Set, Robotics! Our school age Summer Explorers are spending two weeks learning all about Robotics. This week, our Adventurers became “makers” as they practiced design thinking skills, basic coding skills, and teamwork to complete several design challenges, including a Rube Goldberg machines. After learning about Leonardo Da Vinci’s large variety of artworks, machines, and inventions children began working on their own machine- a carnival ride! Children also practiced coding by designing their own path for the Dash robot to follow and worked in groups to help Dash complete the path they created for him. Be sure to check back with us next week to see what other inventions our kids have been working on! #readysetrobotics
We absolutely LOVE watching our Primrose Families grow. Thank you to the Tierney family for your kind words and being such a great addition to our Primrose community. We have enjoyed taking care of Maverick over the past year! "We have been so happy with the care Maverick has received since starting, and truly that we feel as a family. From being happily greeted every morning to the genuine effort teachers and staff alike have made to get to know us, not to mention the ease and peace of mind I feel dropping him off each morning knowing he’s getting award-winning care — for these reasons and more we are so grateful to be part of the Primrose community. Thanks to everyone at Primrose for creating and facilitating such an amazing community. With full and happy hearts, The Tierney’s Kyle, Christine and Maverick (12 weeks vs. 15 months)"
Congratulations to our July family of the month, the Rivera Family! "Hello! We are the Rivera Family. We moved to Woodbury just under two years ago from Germany and our children have been attending Primrose since November of 2020. We are a military family who moves frequently and Primrose has greatly helped make the adjustment to a big move easier for our boys. Our oldest son, Miguel, is currently enrolled in the explorers classroom and is always coming home talking about all the fun he has in before and after school care, and especially during summer camp. Our youngest son, Jaxon, has moved through three classrooms since coming to Primrose and has been able to make incredible developmental strides because of the wonderful teachers he has had in each classroom. We enjoy a lot of family time together. Most weekends we go on a variety of adventures just exploring the area. We frequently have family game nights and like to take our dogs to the park to run and play. We also really enjoy going to sporting events together and watching football every weekend during football season. Both of our children enjoy outside time the most. Jaxon likes the sensory tables and creating art with stickers. Miguel loves to go on the field trips with the adventure club and play with the robots in the classroom."
Congratulations to our July Apple of Our Eye, Mrs. Cook! We have absolutely loved your positive attitude lately. We know your coworkers, families and students really appreciate your hard work and dedication. Thank you for all that you do!

We like to play on the swing set, play with our grandparents and cousins, and spend time outside in general. We’re looking forward to the lake days ahead! At Primrose, our son likes playing with his friends, cars and the sensory table. If our daughter June had a bigger vocabulary, we think she’d say that she enjoys eating the stellar food, going outside and siting on her teachers’ laps."

While it is natural to want to shield children from tragic events, sometimes they may hear adults talking, see images that cause them concern, or ask questions. We have partnered with Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician and member of Primrose Early Learning Council, to develop a resource for navigating difficult conversations with your child.

Some of our favorite things to do together as a family include watching movies, traveling, eating ice cream and visiting Nickelodeon Universe. Rayna and Venice both love arts & crafts. They have great imaginations and can put so much creativity into their art work. Rayna loves her piano and Venice is into Tae Kwon Do. They also love to swim. Their favorite things at Primrose are Mr. Hamlin’s food, the playgrounds and donuts. We are so grateful to be a part of the Primrose Family!"
The Primrose Friends love the holidays! Head over to Primrose Schools' Instagram Stories (@PrimroseSchools) to follow their holiday fun — and for ideas on what you and your little one can do to get in the spirit of the season.
Our Friend Libby the Lamb helps us teach fairness in our classrooms. Read our blog to learn more tips on how to teach these lessons at home.
Happy Anniversary to these wonderful Teachers! Thanks for making Primrose so special!
Congratulations to our, October, Apple of our Eye, Mrs. Parsons! Thank you so much for all that you do for your families and for our school. Our Preschool has been forever changed, for the better, since you joined our team one year age!
Congratulations to the Crubagh Family for being our October Family of the Month! We have loved being able to partner with you over the years. "We are the Crubaugh Family; Chris, Katie, Charlie (3) & Izzy (1). Some of our favorite family activities are having dance parties, reading books, playing at the park and just being outside. When they are at Primrose Charlie & Izzy love playing with their friend and seeing their teachers."
This morning we had the very special opportunity to welcome home from deployment one of our own Primrose parents. We welcomed home Major Tim Grinde this morning by gathering in red, white & blue and lining the halls with gratitude. We are so thankful for all Major Grinde & his family have done for our community. We are especially thankful for his safe return.
Getting outside to play it not only fun, it's a valuable part of a child's development. At Primrose, every day is Get Outside and Play Day! Check out some of our pictures from Relay Day and the first field trips of the Summer!
Best friends help us be our best, from preschool until forever.
No teacher wants a fruit stand for a desk. This Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6th - May 10th), help your child say thanks with an easy (non-perishable) apple craft. Then check out our blog for more ways to say thank you.
Just like the plants in the Primrose Patch, our students are growing fast. Learn more about how gardening can help shape young minds
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
We are celebrating Read Across America Day by dressing up as our favorite storybook characters and hanging out with Cat in the Hat!
Who's that behind The Cat in the Hat? It's Og the Bookworm! He represents literacy in our classrooms and shares the joys of reading with students during Og's Story Time.
Hugs & Kisses from your Primrose Family!
The Scholastic Book Fair is here from February 8th - February 15th! It's time to stock up & please join un on Saturday February 9th for our 2nd Saturday: Bagels and Books Event at 10:30am!
Happy Chinese New Year! Our Private Pre-Kindergarten classrooms were so lucky to have some amazing parents come in and celebrate with them yesterday!
Our Friends have spirit, how about you? Being part of a team helps children develop communication, social and emotional skills. #TheBigGame
Today is the Day!
Our students in our young toddler classroom are learning all about water and how water moves with different objects, like animals!
A little kindness goes a long way. Give someone a compliment today, and every day, to lift them up. #NationalComplimentDay
Today we are honoring Martin Luther King Jr. at Primrose!
Magnets are our paintbrushes this month! Our students have been working in teams to create beautiful masterpieces using magnetism, motion and their creativity!
We are enjoying a busy Monday here at Primrose! Our classrooms have been full of reading to our friends, using pipettes and water colors to make art, using one-to-one correspondence to count and our Private Kindergartners even had a field trip to visit the grandparents! What a great start to the week!
When we make promises, we keep them. That's what Primrose Friend Billy helps teach our students. Today our Private Pre-Kindergarten students acted out a story with our Primrose puppet friends about how important keeping promises is to help our friends feel valued.
Art can be more than pictures of objects. Our students learned that from artist Jackson Pollock. They created their own drip paintings by combining water, oil, paint and sugar and dripping it onto their paper!
Happy Holidays from your Primrose Family! Just a reminder we are closed December 24th & 25th and January 1st. We hope you have a wonderful time with friends and family this holiday season!
Happy First day of Winter!
We sure are starting to feel the Holiday Cheer here at Primrose! The holidays are a special time when we celebrate traditions and give others the best gifts of all -- love, kindness and generosity. Our students are celebrating and learning about each other's traditions with fun activities! What are your family traditions?
It's Ugly Christmas Sweater Day here at Primrose!
Thank you to all our friends and family who came and celebrated with us this week at all our classroom parties! We are feeling the Holiday Spirit at Primrose!
We had a special visitor from the North Pole this morning! Mrs. Claus visited our classrooms today! We sang songs, reads books, and enjoyed our time together preparing for Santa's visit this weekend!
The month of November at Primrose is all about generosity. Which is why we participate in our annual Caring & Giving Food Drive event. This year our students and families collected nearly 1,500 pounds of food and over $200 to be donated to the Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf! Thank you!
Our Private Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classrooms visited Hy-Vee this morning to buy more food for our food drive. They have spent the entire month collecting money in their classrooms, donating their own money, and had the chance to spend it today! The kids even had the opportunity to tour the grocery store. Be sure to watch Channel 5 News tonight as they talk about all the good work our students have done. The Christian Cupboard will be stopping by our school tomorrow to pick up all the food we collected over the month. We can’t wait to see how many pounds of food we collected as a school!
Children learn from watching, listening and imitating. That's why we demonstrate positive character traits, like this months theme of generosity, through our actions, words and lessons.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
Our little scientists have been observing how nature changes with the seasons. This week, they've been focusing on how leaves change! Students have been tracing and sorting leaves, reading about leaves and using their senses to share with each other what they notice!
Our Food Drive kick-off was a huge success! Thank you for helping us show our students what generosity is all about!
We had so much fun at our annual Trick or Treat Street event! Happy Halloween from the 100 Acre Wood-bury Primrose!
