Thank you to Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks for sponsoring this article.
Meggie Bradberry was one of the original Primrose school’s first graduates 30 years ago in Marietta, GA. After all, her parents, Marcy and Paul Erwin, started Primrose Schools and believed enough in its incredible benefits that they wanted Meggie to attend and learn there. Now, Meggie and her husband, Buck, have two young children of their own. Not only did Meggie and Buck send their children to Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks, they are the franchise owners of this unique and successful school.
Carrying on the tradition of Primrose Schools, Meggie and Buck are thrilled to be able to offer families in the Simpsonville area an opportunity for their own little ones to grow, learn and have fun in a healthy, safe environment.
Preschool at Primrose School
Your 3-year-old is beginning to connect letters, sounds and numbers. They’re expanding their world through books and math, building critical thinking skills, exploring early physical fitness and so much more.
Check out some of the fun programs and activities your child will look forward to every day in their classroom.
Mucho Mundo® Spanish Lessons
Along with learning a second language, songs and customs, your child learns about cultural diversity.
Primrose Early Art Masters®
Your child tries various art techniques as they explore the work of famous artists past and present.
Harmony & Heart®
Our music and literature program uses original songs and books to help children become dynamic thinkers, good listeners and kind people.
“We are so pleased with the addition of a new preschool classroom to our beautiful school as we are now able to serve the growing demand of our community!” said Meggie. “Both of my children have graduated from our school, and we can proudly say we are truly the best of the best — from the teachers to the leadership team and our amazing parents! We just love being a part of this incredible community!”
About Meggie & Buck
Meggie graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Georgia, but since she is so passionate about nutrition and wellness (this comes in handy as the owner of a Primrose school in Simpsonville — more on this later), she became a Certified Holistic Health Coach (CHHC) and Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach (CTC).
Buck played baseball and got his degree in business administration as well from Columbus State University in Columbus, GA. Meggie and Buck are active in their communities, as they are members of both the Greenville and Simpsonville Chambers of Commerce and support the American Heart Association.
Primrose School Model
The Primrose experience consists of four main elements: their people and culture that strive toward creating a “caring and nurturing environment that builds trusted relationships”; their Balanced Learning® curriculum which “supports children’s social-emotional, cognitive, creative and physical development”; their Standards of Excellence which provides parents and students with specific accreditation; and their Partnership with Parents, which seeks to develop a strong connection between the parents and the school for the benefit of the children.
The Balanced Learning® curriculum was developed by and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools. It is a research-based curriculum that blends teacher-guided and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development. Balanced Learning is designed for children ages 6 weeks old to 6 years old.
“When my parents started Primrose more than 30 years ago, they had no idea how much of a success it would become,” said Meggie. “All this time, the core values of Primrose have never changed. I’m thrilled to see it come full circle for my own family, and we’re so excited to offer Simpsonville parents the high-quality early education and care that all children deserve.”
Nutrition is Key
With a stellar background in nutrition, Meggie and Buck are the perfect people to teach Primrose students about healthy – and yummy – eating. In fact, prior to becoming franchise owners, they founded a health consulting company that focused on healthy eating alternatives for both individuals and businesses. They love health and nutrition and certainly plan on making that a focal point in the balanced meals and snacks offered at their school.
Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks offers breakfast, a morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and a late afternoon snack. All of their meals and snacks, which are coordinated by certified dietitians, are balanced with lean protein, nutrient-dense foods, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables.
What Families Say
It’s hard to believe that Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks has been open for almost eight years now! Read what the Primrose families have to say:
Primrose Mom Maria said:
“We chose Primrose for private kindergarten for our 5-year-old. We picked Primrose over the other schools in the area because of the smaller classes, the educated teachers, the curriculum and everything they have to offer (gardening, life skills, Grandparent program, etc.) The teacher was wonderful. My daughter warmed up to her right away even though she is very shy. I am so glad we chose Primrose for our daughter! I think it is worth every penny. (BTW- We pass three schools to get to Primrose every day.)”
Primrose Mom Marissa said:
“Our daughter started attending the Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks when she was 12 weeks old and is currently in the Young Toddler room. We’ve been a Primrose family for close to a year now and our daughter has flourished and grown by leaps and bounds. The teachers have been incredible and what she is learning is invaluable.”
Primrose Mom Brooke said:
“As a first-time mom going back to work, there is nothing more powerful and priceless than dropping your child off knowing that they are in the hands of people who genuinely love and care for her as their own. From our first months in the older infant room to the early preschool program, we are constantly enjoying watching her grow, and that is ALL thanks to the commitment and hard work of such amazing teachers and leadership!”
