Soaring Above and Beyond Education Expectations

Soaring Above and Beyond Education Expectations

by Steve Gamel

Frank and Erin Lundie were sold on the Primrose School experience long before they opened their own in Lantana two years ago. As the parents of three beautiful children – Claire, Adelaide, and Graham – the Lundies watched in amazement as their kids surpassed educational and social milestones faster than they ever could have dreamed.

Their goal now is to ensure parents and children in Lantana and Argyle have the chance to experience that same feeling.

“This was a great experience for us and our kids, and it is a model we want to emulate,” said Erin, a former elementary school teacher and assistant principal. “Everything we do is purposely woven into the day. Nothing is by chance.”

Frank added, “It’s serious results, but it’s also fun. Learning should be fun.”

Primrose School of Lantana offers a Balanced Learning® curriculum that combines purposeful play and nurturing guidance in the classroom to help children grow and learn in a nurturing environment. By creating a fun and engaging atmosphere for learning and reinforcing lessons through songs and games, children retain key skills and develop faster.

The focus is not only on academics, but also fostering character development, creativity, self-esteem, critical thinking, and confidence. A key element to making all that learning come to life is ensuring the staff is actively partnering with parents.

“Our focus is on the children. But it’s really important to us that the family feels comfortable,” said Erin, who added that she and Frank are always onsite building relationships. “You can’t nurture a child without having that parent-teacher partnership in place. That approach definitely stands out to our parents.”

Frank agreed.

“If you compare that to a corporate-owned school, you may not get that same owner-on-site connection,” Frank said.

And in an age where quality education is seemingly on every corner, that makes all the difference in the world.

“The teachers are happy to be here, the kids are learning, and the families feel reassured,” Erin said with a sense of pride in her voice. “It has taken many years to get where we are, but it’s exciting to know we are doing something that matters.”
