I don't understand the other comments on this Primrose. We have been attending for about 2.5 yrs and I have always felt very good with our decision. Our son was reading and doing basic math at 4 yrs old. His social skills and knowledge of the environment around him have been very impressive. The staff is always friendly and courteous and he absolutely loves his teachers. So much so that we have decided to stay with this SCHOOL for kindergarten in lieu of the local public school. We want to see him continue to be challenged and not get bored, since he is currently reading at a post 1st grade level. Our oldest went to a couple national chain daycares, trust me this SCHOOL is not simply a daycare.
I am very dissapointed in this daycare. The turnover is constant. I have walked in to drop off my children on multiple occasions and witness disagreements between the office staff and the employees. The communication is lacking. The 4-5 yr olds education is less stringent then their previous daycare, but cost significantly more! I agree with comments below about the owner wearing ridiculous heels and attire and its apparent has next to no interaction with the young children. She's obviouly trying to impress the rich parents. Disappointed
This is one of the worst DAYCARES i have ever worked at, and yes it is just an expensive daycare, nothing more. Honestly you get better care any private owned cdc. Their curriculum is the same as any following federal guidelines. The owners are more concerned with money than the actual care of the kids. I, for one, have seen the excessively high heels, and short skrits on the office staff, and their treatment of their employees is lacking. This place caters to the rich, attempting to convince them their children are getting a better start at an education than they would at some place half the price.
Our son has been enrolled for over a year now & I am sad to say that I have begun looking elsewhere for care. Since we have been a part of this school we've seen a very high turn-over of staff & are constantly seeing new faces popping up & many others we grew familiar with disappearing. Many of the staff members there seem very distant, appearing to only be going through the motions. The children are still very much loved by the teachers, that much is apparent, but they also seem to be reacting to whatever changes are going on. We frequently observe chaos at both drop-off & pick-up & it is very disconcerting. While I still appreciate the Primrose Schools name & the education they provide, I have to ask myself , is it fair for me to send my child to a school that seems to lack the consistency that is so imperative to my son's growth? I would love to give this school a great review but frankly, I am very disappointed with the path of "growth" I have seen thus far. My advice to fellow parents searching for quality care, don't rush into a decision simply based on a brand-name. Take the time to get to know your prospects & remember, looks can be deceiving.
I completely disagree with the previous review (dated 9/29/12, only 2 months after this school opened). This school is going through the normal process of a new school finding the right group of staff. The only people who do not wear the staff uniforms are the management team and I have never seen them wear "5-inch heels" or "mini-skirts"; they dress in professional attire which is perfectly suited to their roles as liaisons between children/staff and parents. They don't typically work directly with the children unless they are giving a teacher a break. I feel this school is dedicated to the safety and education of the young children in it's care and is the best school in the area.
