Words simply cannot express the way our lives have changed since enrolling in Primrose School. Our child had been in a previous daycare facility since 3 months of age and after one bad day after another I finally reached my breaking point and sought other options for care. The only thing I regret at this point is waiting the additional 13 months and dealing with the constant daily stress until I finally walked thru the doors of Primrose and 'saw the light'. At 16 months of age, my child had yet to be introduced to sign language, sharing, the importance of making friends and forming relationships, books, blocks, motor skills and proper hygiene and table etiquette. Due to the lack in level of care at our previous facility, I was left to try to do all of this on my own at home after a 10 hour work day. I was throwing away money and being subjected to sub-par care, and I knew something had to change. I saw that my child was behind and struggling with everyday tasks and I felt completely helpless... And then came Primrose and that light I referenced above. I knew the second I walked thru the doors of the school and was greeted by the Director that the hope I was seeking was just within my reach. From the updated interior and exterior of the building, the attention to cleanliness and sanitation, and the top level of security, in the inside I was screaming with relief and excitement. I enrolled that day, on the spot before even leaving the building. From that point forward, Primrose made our transition into their school seamless and effortless. I was greeted each morning and evening with care, compassion and a bright, bubbling smile from each and every staff member, including the Director and Owners. The teachers were not only knowledgeable and structured in their teaching methods, but also held a compassion for each child I was left astounded by everyday. Within a day I started to realized just how 'night and day' this experience was becoming from my previous child care nightmare, I started to accept the idea that this was actually a legitimate school, rather than a glorified babysitting service, that would help my child grow, develop and learn each day, and the stress that I held daily worrying about the qualify of care my child was receiving was vanishing quicker than I ever thought possible. Within just a weeks time, I noticed changes and development milestones in my child I had yet to see to this point. He was happy, excited for his day and making so many new friends. He loved his teachers, he loved reading books and in just a few short days was beginning to understand sign language and communication skills. He was eating well and had quickly been taught how to sit at a table, use utensils and drink from a cup. This is all in a child who was only 16 months old and had been in a facility of neglect for the last 13 months! Again, I cannot express fully the way Primrose has completely changes our lives. The staff of Primrose Woodstock East is beyond exceptional. To say they are first rate or top notch is a complete understatement. Each day is literally an investment in your child's life, development and future, and it is worth every penny. As I said, my only regret is not finding this location any sooner. There is no other choice in childcare like Primrose, because after all, it is not simply caring for your child, it's helping them learn and grow each and every day, something Primrose takes to heart. Enrolling your child in Primrose is like giving them a second family and a greater experience in life. A choice I'd make over and over again.
I never thought I would feel this good about where I bring my children every day. I have a great peace of mind knowing that they’re in good hands and that they’re getting the best education they can.
If I had to tell somebody why to choose Primrose, I would use the word perfection. You can’t get any better than this environment. There is such a trust level that they establish, the curriculum is very enriching, it’s very well-rounded, the teachers are very warm. So you feel like it’s a family environment.
My husband and I really try to have a culture of loving to learn at home, but since she started at Primrose, I feel like actually it’s our daughter that’s been bringing that energy into our house.
I genuinely feel like my daughter is learning something every second of every minute she’s here at Primrose.
