There’s always something new my child learns every day. I appreciate all the time and effort the early childhood educators put into each day to make learning fun.

- Primrose Parent

Primrose Place Family Centre is a non-profit organization that provides childcare to approximately 70 children, ages 11 months to 6 years. Founded in 1967, the Centre has offered top-quality programming to Edmonton families for over forty years.

Primrose Place Family Centre is a registered charitable organization administered by a voluntary Board of Directors. The board and its committees are made up of both parents of children in the center and members of the community.

Educated and experienced educators plan experiences and activities consistent with the Centre’s philosophy. We also use the Alberta early learning curriculum framework: Play, participation and possibilities as a resource that shapes the daily classroom decisions.

Our Values

We value growth through learning and discovery
We value relationships through trust and collaboration
We value communities through building a supportive family environment


Primrose Place Family Centre meets the needs of families by providing a healthy and safe environment in which the children optimize their potential to become creative, confident and independent contributing members of society.

Our non-profit centre is staffed by highly motivated, early childhood educators dedicated to promoting the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of children. As a center we uphold each other to the image of the primrose educator.

  • We are creators of dynamic and diverse relationships
  • We are imaginers of astonishing possibilities
  • We are researchers of the working of the world
  • We are learners in harmony with the children

All of these qualities make us early learning professionals.
