Sandy and Shi Deng first discovered Primrose Schools in 2009, when their son, Kobe, began attending a Primrose School in the Orlando area.
As working parents, they wanted to ensure that Kobe was in a nurturing environment that also fostered his learning. They became so impressed with Kobe's social, emotional and educational development that they decided to eventually open their own Primrose location.
"We really loved the school," said Sandy Deng, Primrose School of Carrollwood co-owner.
Currently under construction, Primrose School of Carrollwood plans to open in late fall this year. The school will have classrooms for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, and they will also offer VPK and kindergarten.
Primrose will accept VPK vouchers, and will offer wrap around hours for the state-funded, three-hour class. After-school programs will be available for elementary school-age children up to age 12. For students 2 and older, extracurricular activities, such as soccer, karate and dance will be held onsite.
"It's a convenience for our parents," Sandy Deng said.
Since April, the Dengs have been holding monthly informational sessions for prospective parents at Carrollwood Country Club. Pre-enrollment has been ongoing, with many classrooms already full.
"Everyone is so excited to be a part of this," said Sandy Deng. "We feel very welcome, not only by the local businesses, but by the families as well."
The Primrose School of Carrollwood is located at 1770 W Bearss Ave., across the street from Carrollwood Day School, and will be open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (813) 398-8607, go to primrosecarrollwood.com, or on Facebook at Primrose Carrollwood.
