Primrose School, part of a national independently-owned private school for pre-kindergarten children, will open its first California franchise in Pleasanton with a reception and open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.
The school is located in an 8,000-square-foot facility at 7110 Koll Center Parkway.
Founded in 1982 with headquarters in Atlanta, Primrose Schools provides early-years educational child care experience in more than 275 schools in 19 states. Each Primrose is independently owned and operated by franchise owners. They partner with parents to help children build a foundation for future learning and life, offering an environment that allows children have fun while nurturing active minds and healthy bodies, said Pleasanton franchise owners Nick and Samina Kurji, who will host tomorrow's grand opening event.
"As parents, we understand the importance of instilling a love of learning during a child's early years, and we believe this is essential to building a bright future for our world," said Nick Kurji.
"After learning about the matchless curriculum and passion of the Primrose family, we quickly became avid supporters of Primrose and we are committed to helping children in the Tri-Valley community while also giving parents the peace of mind they need and deserve," he added.
Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne and Dawn Wilson of the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce will lead a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. today. That will be followed with games, face painting, a magician, school tours, refreshments, and a drawing for a free iPad Air.
