Although the Primrose School of Littleton (7991 Southpark Way) has been in business for ten years, new owners Farima and Reza Nemat have transformed the culture of early education. The Nemats moved to Littleton from Washington D.C. in June and immediately immersed themselves in the community. They envision the school as more than just a drop-off and pick-off location as it offers plenty of after-school activities and opportunities for parents to interact. The Nemat’s two sons both attend the school that boasts a three-to-one student to teacher ratio.
Infants to five-year-olds are welcome at the private preschool that fosters a safe and nurturing environment. There is a hands-on component to the national STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) curriculum taught at the school. For instance, Creek Side Gardens donated materials to the school to start their own garden. The students maintain the garden and harvest the vegetables. Those vegetables are then used to create healthy and nutritious lunches, prepared by the in-house chef.
The Primrose School of Littleton sits on two acres of land, including plenty of outdoor space for children to play. Transportation is also available to nearby schools as part of the Explorers Club for older students. Families interested in the school can try a free Discovery Day or stop by the open house January 14 from 10 a.m. – noon.
