Every parent should feel confident that their child is receiving the highest-quality education and care available. At Primrose, we crafted our Balanced Learning® approach to introduce children to important concepts such as character development and life skills alongside subjects like mathematics and literacy. Developing these skills with the support of dedicated teachers helps young children build strong foundations for the future and inspires a lifelong love of learning.
Every day in Primrose schools across the country, teachers use the Happy Hearts Character
Development and Life Skills™ program to help students strengthen values such as respect, responsibility and honesty. Happy Hearts focuses on:
1. BUILDING CHARACTER
Well-developed social skills are essential for building strong, confident relationships. Teachers encourage students to be active members of their communities and treat those around them with respect and understanding.
2. DEVELOPING CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
As a child’s mind develops, it’s crucial that they learn how to utilize problem-solving methods and critical thinking in order to engage with the world around them in a creative, curious way.
3. CARING FOR OURSELVES & OUR ENVIRONMENT
Teachers help students understand the importance of making smart decisions that benefit themselves and others by demonstrating heathy habits and safety skills.
Harmony & Heart®
Primrose students experience the joy of music every day in their classrooms during Harmony & Heart® music time. This program helps children develop rhythm and movement skills as they groove along to songs about kindness, creativity and responsibility. Your family can enjoy all the fun of Harmony & Heart® outside of the classroom, too, by streaming our exclusive music collections!
The Primrose Friends
One of the most delightful features of our Balanced Learning® approach is the Primrose Friends! These 12 adorable animal pals come to life as classroom puppets. Teachers use the Friends to help demonstrate positive character traits such as honesty, citizenship, bravery and more! Each month, a different Friend’s birthday is celebrated with songs, books and lessons that reflect the character trait they embody.
Our mission is to forge a path that leads to a brighter future for all children. Contact a school in your area today to see how this mission comes to life in a Primrose classroom.
