In the latest edition of Fairfax Fridays, we were able to take a tour of Primrose School of Chantilly and visit with Kathy Sheanh, the school’s owner.
Primrose has been open for a little over a year and offers before and after school care for a little over 100 students, ages six weeks to 12 years. It features four different playgrounds, a garden, and their own chef. We were able to witness this facility being built and we can attest to what a beautiful stone building it sits inside of.
One of the things Kathy hears the most from both the staff and the children’s families is how warm and welcoming the school can be. “All of our staff are amazing,” she says. “They love children, and they’re passionate about teaching the Primrose curriculum. We have an amazing curriculum that we’re really proud of.”
According to Kathy, Primrose partners with experts from many different child-related fields to produce what they call “The Balanced Learning Curriculum,” where children learn seven different learning domains, including literacy, science, numbers, social studies, etc.
One of Kathy’s favorite things to teach, though, is character development. An example of this is reflected in their Caring and Giving Food Drive. All their classrooms have been busy collecting canned goods and other non-perishable goods for families in need in Fairfax County.
Kathy’s most important tip for anyone looking to place a child in preschool or daycare is to find a place that gives you peace of mind. You want the child to have a good experience, and you want to know what the teachers love about the school and what they love teaching. What they love teaching is what your child will love as well.
Kathy’s own daughter attends Primrose, so she’s been able to see firsthand the results her school has been able to produce. Kathy is a neighbor and a client of ours, and she’s created an amazing business.
"What teachers love teaching is what your child will love as well."
