At Primrose Schools we offer more than a daycare experience. We call our unique accredited preschool curriculum Balanced Learning, blending the two leading philosophies of teaching children in child care. One of those philosophies endorses a child-initiated approach, in which children are free to explore their individual interest with teacher support. The other places a greater emphasis on teacher direction, where an established curriculum leads children along a consistent learning path. Through Balanced Learning, we combine the best of both philosophies. We let the particular interests of each child serve as the springboard to healthy social, emotional, physical and academic development, while teachers guide them to self assurance and prepare them for lifelong academic and social success. Our curriculum and program have achieved accreditation status from CITA/NCS (advanced ed), two of the most prominent and respected education associations in the country. For more than 100 years, these prestigious associations have been recognized as the gold standard in evaluating schools and colleges, and Primrose was the first educational preschool to receive this accreditation award. Three methodologies used in our Balanced Assessment help us guide and improve instruction for each individual child.
