Back to School Enrollment Opens at Primrose Schools®

ATLANTA - July 1, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Back-to-school season is approaching, and Primrose Schools, a high-quality early education and care provider with more than 300 schools coast to coast, is now accepting new students for fall 2015. With proven success in supporting students to develop the right foundation for elementary school and beyond, parents are encouraged to schedule a tour with their local Primrose school to learn more about our exclusive Balanced Learning® curriculum and program.

Primrose Schools offers students a balanced approach to learning that is research-informed, blending philosophies from the most influential child development theorists in early childhood like Montessori with modern wisdom from the most current research. Each day in every Primrose school across the country, teachers guide and extend children's thinking through meaningful questioning and direct instruction, continually guiding their learning to the next level.

"Primrose is truly on the forefront of high-quality early education, incorporating well-established research and new findings to engage children in purposeful play and exploration and spark a love of learning," said Kathy Cabe Trundle, Ph.D., department head and professor of STEM Education at North Carolina State University, who consults with Primrose on education and curriculum.

Developed by a team of early education and childhood development experts, Primrose Balanced Learning is specifically designed to meet the needs of the whole child by creating a learning experience that nurtures Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®. Using the Balanced Learning approach, teachers help build each child's literacy, math and critical thinking skills through developmentally-appropriate experiences. Teachers also nurture creativity, social and emotional growth, and character development in children so that they are not only ready for kindergarten, but also for future learning and life.

"Our goal is to create a safe and nurturing environment that helps children develop the foundation they need to become happy, successful adults," said Jo Kirchner, president and CEO of Primrose Schools. "Each day, parents entrust us to care for their children and keep them safe. We're humbled by that opportunity, as well as honored to also have the opportunity to empower these children with the skills and tools they need to reach their full potential."
