The early education market is blooming.
Demand for high-quality, early education and care has never been higher in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 62 percent of families with children have two parents employed – more than ever before. Not surprisingly then, an estimated 12.5 million children under the age of 4 are enrolled in some form of child care at any given time1.
As more and more parents value this critical time in a child's development, Primrose Schools®, as The Leader in Early Education and Care®, is ideally positioned to address the growing need for excellent, innovative care and early childhood education nationwide. That’s because we’re more than a daycare franchise opportunity. We are the premier education and child care business model.
