The Primrose School of Midtown is the flagship, urban model for Primrose and it’s 40th school in the metro Atlanta area. For over 25 years, Primrose has delivered the best in early childhood education and child care services to families across the country.
We call our unique accredited curriculum Balanced Learning, blending the two leading philosophies of teaching children. One of those philosophies endorses a child-initiated approach, in which children are free to explore their individual interest with teacher support. The other places a greater emphasis on teacher direction, where an established curriculum leads children along a consistent learning path. Through Balanced Learning, we combine the best of both philosophies. We let the particular interests of each child serve as the springboard to healthy social, emotional, physical and academic development, while teachers guide them to self assurance and prepare them for lifelong academic and social success.
Continuing to set Primrose Midtown apart, is our incredible teaching staff. Truly creme of the crop, these teachers self-describe their spirit as “The Midtown Vibe”. As a team, we developed our own core values and these young ladies chose the words, Genuine, Loving, Encouragement and Enthusiasm to describe their approach in the classroom. This "GLEE"ful culture has been established and will continue to evolve over the many years we hope to have these fine ladies at our school. 60% of these teachers have a degree in education or a related field and the 40% are currently working towards this achievement. Combined, the Primrose School of Midtown has over 191 years of early childhood education experience!

The concept of balance is core to the Primrose approach to curriculum development and programming. We believe each child is unique, capable, curious, and in the process of discovering how the world works. We want to encourage this natural process by providing the kind of teaching and learning environment that will foster the development of well-rounded children. Our Balanced Learning curriculum provides teachers with an instructional blueprint that enables them to promote and support children’s learning in multiple waysthrough listening, seeing, hearing, touching, and play.
We consider multiple aspects of development and learningcognitive, social-emotional, physical, and creativein the design of our research-based curriculum. The engaging learning activities that make up the curriculum are appropriate for children at different stages of developmentfrom six weeks to five years. We recognize the necessity and value of well-planned, developmentally appropriate experiences for children. Our curriculum and training experts create and select curriculum for teachers to use to address specific learning outcomes in seven different learning domains, as once again, balance comes into play. The learning outcomes identified for each class level provide a learning path that helps teachers make their daily instruction purposeful and intentional.
