The McLaughlin’s have been active owners in their Primrose Schools providing a combination of nurturing child-care services and a strong educational foundation for children in The Woodlands and Spring for the past 19 years.
Education has always been important to Don and Arlena. Montgomery County’s exemplary rated schools are the reason the McLaughlin’s relocated to TheWoodlands in 2001 with their sons, Caleb and Callen McLaughlin. Both sons graduated from The Woodlands High School and subsequently graduated from Baylor University. Along with Don, both are involved in developing and building 15 pre-schools for their family and other Primrose Franchise owners.
Primrose philosophy that who children become is as important as what they know helped The McLaughlin’s make the decision to join Primrose and build and operate six pre-schools in The Woodlands and Spring.
Teaching and mentoring children to give back to their community is something that Don and Arlena believe in teaching children. For the past 36 years, the McLaughlin’s have been active and held leadership roles in Chamber of Commerces, United Ways, Library Boards, Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs, Education Foundation, Advisory boards for Community and Economic Development, Crimestoppers, Rotary Clubs, Youth and High Schools Sports and their church. Don and Arlena are recipients of Primrose Schools prestigious Presidents Award for Excellence.
In 1999, Don and Arlena discovered Primrose and knew from experience in searching for quality care for their boys that Primrose was unique in that it offered parents both educational child-care and excellent child-care services. The Montgomery County area was known for quality schools and they knew Primrose would be well received in the area.
Our school’s have grown organically, with parents asking us to open a school in their neighborhood. Schools owned and operated by The Mclaughlin’s are in the Villages of Sterling Ridge-Primrose School of Sterling Ridge, Alden Bridge-Primrose School of College Park, Village of Creekside-Primrose School of Creekside Park, Grand Parkway and Riley Fuzzell-Primrose School of Harmony, Imperial Oaks, The Falls and Oakridge-Primose School of Imperial Oaks and Bridgestone Lakes and 2920-Primrose School of Spring-Klein.
“We enjoy seeing and hearing the success of children who have experienced the foundation that a Primrose education provides,” says Arlena McLaughlin. “Many of our families have grown children and are still in touch with us. It is very rewarding to hear from parents that they attribute part of their child’s success to our Primrose Schools.”

Leadership Team and Lead Teachers will be on campus from 10am-12pm to tour and showcase our Balanced Learning philosophy program and curriculum!
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.
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.
At Primrose Schools® Summer Adventure Club, learning meets fun through hands-on activities—like sports, robotics, and more—that encourage creativity, compassion and resourcefulness.
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.
That's right! Primrose School of The Woodlands at Sterling Ridge is not a daycare, we are a Private Preschool that does so much more than take care of young children. We have a balanced learning approach to teaching our students to ensure that they are not only growing academically but socially and emotionally as well. We believe who children become is just as important as what they know. Our curriculum is exclusive to our program and ties in with our music program, Harmony and Heart to teach children not only character development, rhythm, and melody; but also learning how to be more dynamic thinkers, better listeners, and kinder people.
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.
