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 staff plan a curriculum consistent with the Centre’s philosophy that positive role-playing and learning through play is the most effective and appropriate method for children at the pre-school age.
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. We encourage cooperation with parents and the community to make optimal use of all available resources.
