Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

A Philosophy of Balance Self-discovery and teacher guidance provide a balance of activities that expand your child�s academic, social, and emotional development. Our talented teachers provide wonderfully enriching experiences that help develop happy, confident learners---preschoolers who smile while they sing, talk, dance, rhyme, count, play, create, write, and explore. Focusing on the Fundamentals Primrose Schools� comprehensive accredited Balanced Learning� Preschool curriculum expands preschoolers� knowledge through weekly thematic Units of Learning. The units are integrated with quality introductory programs for reading and math, focusing on: � Phonemic awareness and letter recognition � Awareness of print and early reading concepts � Number recognition and early math concepts � Critical thinking skills such as predicting, recalling events, and sequencing � Beginning use of technology in learning Discovering New Achievements Every Day As the school year progresses, you will be excited to see the progress your child is making. Weekly newsletters keep you in touch with the themed-based classroom activities. Each month you will receive Percy�s Pointers, a parent newsletter that contains suggestions to reinforce classroom activities at home. You will see your child�s budding creativity and emerging skills on the Look What We Can Do! bulletin boards. You will also receive the On Balance monthly newsletter to keep you informed of school-wide events and information. Balanced Learning� for Preschool Our exclusive Balanced Learning� Preschool curriculum has been designed to enhance the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of each child. Weekly thematic Units of Learning provide engaging lessons and activities in the following learning areas: Language and literacy development � A love of books and sharing stories � Phonemic awareness and the beginning of making associating sounds with letters � Print knowledge (letters and words) and recognition of letters in name � Written expression and writing�beginning to mimic letters and use words or drawings to convey meaning Math concepts � Sorting � Understanding directions (up, down, top, bottom, etc.) � Measuring � Simple problem solving � Recognizing numbers 1-10 Gross and fine motor skills Beginning technology skills for learning Balanced Adventure in Learning and Fun! Spirited fun and engaged focus is the delicate balance that we achieve in the Preschool classroom. Each day the children are encouraged to explore their world and interact with one another in the high-interest Children�s Choice Integrated Centers. Daily teacher-directed lessons focus on early reading and math concepts. Reading activities address essential early literacy skills such as rhyming, phonemic awareness, basic vocabulary, listening comprehension, and reading for enjoyment and information. Math activities provide opportunities to explore concepts such as counting, one-to-one correspondence, number sense, and ordinal placement. These activities enhance children�s natural interest in mathematics and connect it to their daily learning in ways that make sense. Part of the learning and fun happens with the Primrose Learning Kit that includes the Primrose Interactive Calendar, Primrose Weather Chart and the Posies and Pollywogs Character Posters. These teaching tools follow children through Private Kindergarten to ensure consistency of instruction. The kit also includes Primrose Alphabet and Number Posters and Cards. These engaging materials create opportunities to apply newly learned skills to everyday experiences in science, social studies, reading, math, and character development. The Primrose Friendssm Puppets are brought out to introduce and motivate the children. Charting Individual Growth and Development Young children mature and develop skills at different rates. With this in mind, Primrose Preschool teachers focus on each child�s progress throughout the year. They support the development of key milestones, such as understanding that pictures and symbols convey meaning, predicting what will happen next in a story, identifying letters, and understanding the relationship between a number of objects and the number that represents them. Each child is given the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace in a setting that is challenging, enjoyable, and instills a lifelong love of learning.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Primrose Schools� philosophies are based upon the belief that by providing each child with a secure, nurturing and educational child care experience�that fosters self-discovery and a love of learning�we can help to establish a foundation for lifelong success. That is also our mission.
As your partner in your child�s education, we are pleased to share with you the following exemplary educational philosophies we infuse into our Balanced Learning� curriculum and throughout every Primrose School.


A child�s limitless potential should be met with boundless inspiration.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
We believe that every child has something special that can be built upon.
Great teaching balances telling children how to arrive at the answer with supporting them to find the answer on their own.
Learning is a treasure that will follow our children everywhere.
You�re never too young to learn something new.
Education is not received. It is achieved.
New technology doesn�t just affect how we teach. It affects how and what they learn.
Wise beyond one�s years can apply to four-year olds.
What a gift we give when we respect the child's natural need to explore, to reflect, to communicate, to dream, to celebrate!
