Congratulations to our Infant Teacher- Ms. Yolanda, the Apple of Our Eye this month. Her positive energy and love for the children shines everyday! Thank you Ms. Yolanda for everything you do! Your hard work and dedication makes you a valued member of our Primrose family! ❤️ #appleofoureye #infantteacher

Primrose School of Downtown Bethesda is proud to honor the Brown family as our Family of the Month! We appreciate all you contribute to Primrose, and we are happy to have you as a part of our school. We asked them why they chose Primrose and this is what they had to say... "Moving to a new city and finding a new preschool in such an uncertain time was a huge challenge, but we felt so supported by Mike and Malina during our transition. Their investment in Primrose as the choice for their own two children gave us the assurance and commitment we needed when starting at a brand new school. Our daughter has loved her experience thus far with Ms. Ana and spending time with Ms. Sophie- it's amazing to watch how much she is learning and thriving in our new city!"

Happy first day of Fall! 🍁🍂

The Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation is proud to partner with No Kid Hungry®, donating $250,000 toward programs that will help provide children with the healthy food they need to thrive. Through various fundraising efforts the Foundation is able to put children first during this time of crisis and help provide access to 2.5 million meals through this donation. #nokidhungry
