Libby's Character Cue: Fairness

“That’s not fair!” is an all-too-familiar phrase for many families. It’s also a great opportunity for a child to learn about fairness and build resilience. Try these communication tips the next time your little one feels like bedtimes, presents or the universe is being unfair.


Caring & Giving Total Donations

This November, Primrose schools all across America joined together in raising $38,575 and donating 355,559 canned goods to families in need. A big thank you and congratulations to Primrose students, families, and teachers for all of their hard work and for embracing the spirit of Caring and Giving this season! ​

Watch the video to see highlights from Primrose schools' Caring and Giving events.


Celebrating the Holidays

Holidays are a great opportunity for children to learn about the cultures and traditions of others. This helps create a sense of belongingness and an appreciation for how we are all alike and different. This December, try learning about different holidays like Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas whether you celebrate them or not.


Happy birthday to Libby℠ the lamb, our friend who helps teach students all about fairness! Most families know (and dread) the familiar cry of “That’s not fair!” but these tips can help turn a young child’s frustration into a great learning opportunity.


Cold temperatures keeping you inside? Bring the outside in with this fun, STEAM-inspired indoor garden activity using recycled materials! Help your child put on their scientist hat and use observation skills to watch the plants grow and change all winter.

The holidays are a time for joy, but for many families, there’s also a lot of pressure to make everything perfect. Try these tips to overcome packed calendars, sugar overload and budget-busting buying sprees.

📅 Create some space on your calendar.
Re-evaluate the number of parties and events you reply yes to this year and leave space for spontaneous family fun.

😴 Maintain your family’s sleep routine.
Adults and children need adequate sleep all the time, but especially during the holidays with all the stimuli and activity.

🍭 Watch out for sugar overload.
As they say, “everything in moderation.” Sweet treats are a great part of the holidays, but too much sugar can lead to cranky children and irritable adults.

👪 Keep it simple.
Making ornaments, presents and holiday décor is a fun way to express creativity, enjoy quality family time and even help ease financial stress.

🍽️ Make mealtime meaningful.
Let mealtime be a time of coming together and enjoying the moment. During the holidays, make an extra effort to eat your meals at the table as a family.

🔇 Cherish silence.
Make time for a bit of silence every day, whether it’s in the morning before the children wake up, during their nap or right before you turn in.

🎵 Create joyful rituals.
Find some time for family fun with simple holiday rituals you and your children will always remember, like singing holiday songs in the car.

Happy holidays! Check out our blog for the full story.

Ms. Gil is an infant teacher at Primrose School of Druid Hills and has been teaching in early childhood for over 10 years. For Native American Heritage Month, she joined us to share her story. ​

Tell us about yourself and your Native American heritage. ​

Ms. Gil: “My dad and grandma always said that our Native American Heritage was Blackfoot from the northern Idaho and Montana region. It wasn’t until our family moved to a tiny town in northern Nevada that I really learned about Native American culture. I lived on the reservation with my husband and his family, and they taught me traditions and customs of the tribe.” ​

A very special thank you to our amazing Family of the Month, the Hamlin Family, for the love and support they have showed our Primrose Family the last few years. We appreciate you!

“We were introduced to Primrose School of Midlothian Village in 2019 by another Primrose family, and we only wish we’d found our way here earlier! We have been so impressed with their care for the children, level of communication, organization, and academic excellence. We love the teachers and the staff, and the fact that many of them have such a long tenure with the school. Everyone is friendly, professional, and genuinely cares for our children. They make our lives as working parents so much easier with their excellent planning and accommodating schedule. Our daughter Keese graduated Pre-K in 2020, and Agatha will graduate Private Kindergarten this Spring. Primrose is the best and will always have a special place in our family’s heart!” -The Hamlin Family

Yesterday was as good as gold! ⭐️ Thank you to our amazing teachers, volunteers and guests for the best Green Day yet! 💚☘️ It was so nice to be together and see your smiling faces.


Congratulations to our Family of the Month for March…the Miller Family! Tommy, Anna, Harland, and Emmit have been a special part of our Primrose Family for almost 4 years! We have loved getting to know this sweet family and appreciate their continued support.

“When we were expecting our oldest, we heard from friends and coworkers what a great school Primrose was for our children. They were right! We toured plenty of schools and Primrose was a no brainer for us. The sense of community and genuine care and support for every child, not just our own, is obvious. In particular over the last two years, the school has continually reinforced the priority of everyone’s health and continued to hold a very high academic bar. We acknowledge how very difficult this time has been for our educators and staff. And we are so grateful for all the decisions that have been made with every twist and turn as we all learned to live with the circumstances.

Our children, ages 1 and 4, come home fulfilled and happy each and every day. They love showing their artwork and talking about things they learn. And we enjoy seeing their development progress. Knowing each classroom’s curriculum every day allows us to supplement that learning at home. And then there are the wonderful teachers who love and teach kids, meeting kids where they are developmentally. We’ve always admired the Primrose teachers and the passion they have for all children. They truly have a special place in our hearts.” -The Miller Family
