New Primrose School Opens in Lebanon

The new Primrose School of South Lebanon recently opened, and there is so much to look forward to for students, parents and the community.

The Primrose School of South Lebanon opened this past January, and it’s bringing more than top notch education to students – over 35 jobs, care to more than 200 children and $5.5 million in project costs to the local community are also another benefit of this new high-quality education school.

Grand Opening Celebration

Experienced local owner, Ruthann Stidd, who has a background in education and another primrose school under her belt, says their grand opening celebrating was a fun success.

“It’s always fun to see everyone celebrate all of the hard work that’s gone into the school and the project over the last year,” Stidd says.

Followed by the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the public was invited to tour the school and see what it has to offer. Along with the insightful tour, kids got to engage in an array of activities as well. Every room told a story about the new Primrose school – one of the rooms represented their Spring Fling, where they raise money for CancerFree Kids and the Primrose Children Foundation; and another classroom had a parent appreciation dinner to represent the dinner they have in the beginning of the year.

Stidd and local business owner Mark Norvell, planted a Primrose school in Mason, and they couldn’t have chosen a better location for their South Lebanon school.

“South Lebanon is an up-and-coming area in Cincinnati, it’s one of the fastest growing,” says Stidd. “It’s a hub for working families, and a it’s a perfect community for Primrose because there’s a strong demand for quality, early childhood education and care.”

About Primrose School of South Lebanon

Primrose is a great foundation for children to expand their curiosity, creativity and passion, and according to Stidd, their goal is to prepare them for success and to help them grow up to be leaders and compassionate, caring adults.

Parents and children can look forward to a variety of activities throughout the year, as well as top-notch curriculum. Among parent appreciation activities, philanthropical events and fun summer camps, they do a handful of charitable events as well. There is their back-to-school Primrose Promise Days of Giving where they collect backpacks and school supplies to donate to the Warren County Children’s Services; in November they hold their food drive for local food pantries; and in December they support charities such as Toys for Tots.

“Every month has something going on,” laughs Stidd. “It’s always a lot of fun.”

The Primose School of South Lebanon has 11 classrooms and four secure, age-appropriate playgrounds. It also features a Primrose Patch for gardening and nature study activities. They are enrolling all year, and they are also available to schedule a tour for families. Currently, they offer educational childcare, pre-K classes, before-and-after-school care for grades K-5 and a full-day summer learning experience through the Summer Adventure Club.
