Moving our daughter over to Primrose Five Forks was a MAJOR breath of fresh air. As an overly type A mom who researches EVERYTHING times 100 and takes our daughter's education and environment very seriously, choosing Primrose Five Forks came after much prayer, research, multiple trips to talk to the leadership, emails with additional questions, talking with teachers and parents, and even more visits again. Our daughter transitioned there perfectly and what I love the most is how open and welcoming the staff is. They appreciate when parents ask questions, they are amazingly quick at responding to emails and phone calls and I am never made to feel like my questions are unwanted. The leadership wants the parents to know that their children are not only going to get a well rounded education but the children are also loved and so are the parents. I can't say enough good things about the leadership, for me that is what makes a school. Because their heart and talent pours down to the teachers and staff.
