School Official Point of View

We are so appreciative of the wonderful parents who have taken the time to attest to all we have to offer our students here at The Primer School. In reference to the one negative comment I must reply. I am so sorry that someone felt the need to post something of that nature. It is simply not true. All of the wonderful teachers at Primer School have been here for 10 years or more with the exception of three part-time teachers that are highly qualified, approached me with the resumes, and were interviewed and hired based on their heart for children and qualifications. I did not know them prior to purchasing this school. Our school is a wonderful, nurturing, safe environment. We care for each and every child here and we care for their families as well. Our ratios are kept at way below state level to ensure all of our children receive nothing but the highest level of care. We work with our families in every way to ensure emotional, social, and academic growth in all of our precious students. Primer is all heart and undoubtedly a wonderful educational preschool with nothing but the best, professional educators. I encourage you to come visit our school and see for yourself how much we genuinly care for our students.

Just about to graduate from Kindergarten! I feel blessed to have sent both my children through this WONDERFUL school. Thanks to the great teachers, small classes, terrific curriculum each child develops independence and confidence in their learning. You cannot give your child a better beginning.

Our boy is lucky to be in his third semester at Primer. The teachers do such a great job and the curriculum just keeps getting better.

The Primer School has been by far the best decision we could have made for our son. He was in the 3's Class and in the beginning of the year, he was very shy and didn't talk very much. Within months, he has improved tremendously. The teachers and the owner are all very kind hearted and warm spirited. There was always a sense of family when we took him there. I toured many daycares and schools in the area and none of them compared to this one. They are very focused on education and teaching them things they can apply or that will help them grow and develop, not to mention it's very affordable. I highly recommend you enroll your child there, it will be the best decision for your little one!

The teachers a Primer really care and do a great job working with the kids. My daughter has thrived in this environment. I would gladly send any future children I have to them or recommend anyone to trust this school with their children.

The only school in the area that offers half day for Kindergarten! The tuition is a great deal. We love the small class size and friendly atmosphere. Our daughter loved being there, and we are thankful to her teacher for starting her education off with such special caring!

I would like to say that Primer School has been excellent for my family, as my two older girls have gone there in the past. Currently, my son who is enrolled there and Primer has gone above and beyond. Not to reveal too much, but if we were at any other "pre-K school, my son would have not grown and progressed as much as he has. Primer is not just a "mother's day out" program. It is a program that continues to educate our children with love, patience and repetition. To whoever wrote the distasteful remark on 07 April, you are free to have your own opinion. However, to be rude and ugly and not have your facts regarding your remarks is not only distasteful, false, but disgusting. If you are going to have an opinion, please be sure that you have your facts, data, and complete a spell check on your statement for the readers. Thank you.

I am so grateful for Primer! The teachers are loving, patient, nurturing, and experienced. They have helped my three children gain confidence and overcome their shyness and have given each of them the foundation they needed to excel in public school. The Kindergarten is absolutely phenomenal. My only regret about our Primer experience is that I did not have my oldest 2 kids attend the 3 year old class. The director is wonderful, caring and kind. She has a heart of gold and I am so glad she took over the Primer school so that it is still here for our children. You will not be disappointed, your children will love the Primer experience and so will you!

Primer School has been and continues to be an exceptional choice for my daughter. She has been attending for the last year and half, during which she has gone from shy and nervous to outgoing and confident in her abilities. I can attribute this to the attentiveness of the teachers at Primer. Academic wise i feel this school is exactly what a preschool should be, a large majority of the learning is based on play and they teach age appreciate material which encourages a love of learning. My daughter will be attending the kindergarten program next year, and my younger child will be attending once she is 3. I hope they continue to grow and offer additional grade levels, i would love for my children to attend Primer for all of her elementary school years.

I would like to respond to the review submitted on April 7. My first thought was, "they must have the wrong school." Primer was and still is the best preschool in Arlington...period! Both of my boys went there for the 3, 4, and kindergarten programs and excelled beyond belief. As a former teacher myself, I wanted a place that not only had a strong curriculum, but one that also provided a loving and nuturing atmosphere. Primer was the answer! I encourage anyone looking for a top notch school for their children to look no further. You won't be disappointed!
