Testimonials:

Mike Hummer, Primrose School at Moorefield Station:
“The Primrose franchise model, proven business strategy, and Balanced Learning System provide new franchise owners with a clear path to follow and make them CEOs of their own business. (I think) it’s a good financial investment.”

Elliott Blades, Primrose Schools at Holly Grove and West Lake:
“I think at the end of the year when I see those children walk across the stage during the graduation ceremony is probably what makes me feel proudest about owning the franchise and being the franchise owner. Because you know at that moment that you really are changing history. You’re unleashing on the world another batch of children that are just a little bit better, a little bit smarter, a little bit more confident than they were when they came to you.”

Jana Radtke, Primrose Schools of Cross Creek, Tampa Palms, and South Tampa:
“We had looked at other franchise opportunities and individual opportunities, even starting the business on our own, and just never found any that quite matched what Primrose had to offer because it was the Harvard of preschools and that’s why we wanted it so bad for our children.”
