About the Provider

Description: You have great hopes for your child, and so do we. That is why The Private Primrose preschool curriculum distinguishes itself by creating a safe and nurturing environment where children are happy and continually preparing for a bright tomorrow. We call our unique accredited curriculum Balanced Learning, blending the two leading philosophies of teaching children. 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 Balance 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.
