About the Primrose School of Warren Founded in 2012, Primrose School of Warren was the first Primrose School in the Northeast / Mid Atlantic US founded by Franchise Owners BurtEng and Linda Chen. Primrose School of Warren is a private AdvancED accredited preschool which accepts infants from 8 weeks through private kindergarten with an after school care program for ages 5 to 11.
As parents of 2 younger children, the Engs understands the careful considerations that occur when weighing different childcare options for kids. Like most families, Eng looked high and low for a school that focuses on all aspects of character development, balanced learning and a sense of community. Eng quickly fell in love with Primrose's balanced approach to education, but because there wasn't a Primrose School open in the state of New Jersey, he decided to start one. Their pledge to the community is that Primrose School of Warren will always be committed to providing a warm, loving and safe environment where your child will flourish and fulfill their potential. “Our parents were immigrants who came to the US with the goal of providing us with the best opportunities to excel in life. Now, we look forward to giving our son, daughter and all of the children in the area the greatest opportunities with a well-rounded upbringing and a strong foundation for future success. We look forward to partnering with families and providing their children with the education and experiences that will set them up for success later in life in everything that they do!” Primrose School of Warren is designed to help children build the right foundation for future learning and life, and offer an environment that helps children have fun while nurturing Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts.
