ATLANTA - July 17, 2014 / PR Newswire / - Back-to-school is around the corner, and Primrose Schools, a family of accredited, early education and care schools, is accepting enrollment for Fall 2014. With more than 280 schools in 20 states across the country, Primrose provides high-quality education and care to more than 60,000 children ages 6-weeks to 6-years-old.
Primrose blends the best practices from a variety of early child care approaches, including Maria Montessori, Arnold Gesell and Jean Piaget, into a program that was the first in the country to earn accreditation from AdvancEDTM, the world’s largest community of education professionals. This accreditation ensures all Primrose schools meet the highest-quality standards and shows they are continually improving student learning.
Primrose’s exclusive Balanced Learning® curriculum is research-informed and built on a foundation of proven, sound early childhood education science and research. It combines teacher-guided and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development to nurture Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts® in the first five years of a child’s life. Research shows the human brain develops faster in the first five years than it ever will again, making it critical for parents to ensure their children have the proper encouragement and stimulation in these early years.
"High-quality early childhood education provides children with the foundation they need to lead healthy, safe and productive lives," said Jo Kirchner, president and CEO of Primrose Schools. "Research shows that children who engage in quality early childhood education experiences have a sustained edge over children who are not exposed to this type of early learning. We are honored to provide young children with the right start for future learning and success in life."
Developed by a team of early education and development experts, the Balanced Learning® system is consistently delivered in each Primrose school, providing high-impact educational experiences to support children’s social-emotional, cognitive, creative and physical development. It is made up of a standards-based curriculum that enables teachers to help children gain the knowledge and skills that will enable them to move successfully from one level of development to the next as well-rounded individuals. The system also offers developmentally-appropriate materials, tools and equipment for all classrooms; multiple forms of assessment; and extensive training for teachers.
