New Primrose School of North Murfreesboro Enrolling Now

Murfreesboro parents have a new option for quality early education and care with the opening of Primrose School of North Murfreesboro in early to mid-June.

The school can accommodate up to 196 children and is currently enrolling children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. This will be the second Primrose School in Murfreesboro and the eighth Primrose School in the greater Nashville area.

Local Franchise Owners Tim and Julie Henry are excited to bring exceptional early learning experiences to children in Murfreesboro. The Henry’s have an existing Primrose School in Spring Hill, which they opened in 2014. They originally moved from Atlanta to build their first Primrose and raise their two children in a family-friendly area.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Murfreesboro community and help provide young children with the right foundation for future learning and life,” said Tim Henry, Franchise Owner of Primrose School of North Murfreesboro. “Our family knows what a struggle it can be to find premier childcare, and we want to give parents the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are well-cared for and happy.”

Community Impact 

The school will create at least 40 local jobs at full capacity and the owners are actively hiring for teacher and staff positions. Additionally, the Henry’s plan to give back to the community through annual events that provide students the opportunity to practice generosity and giving without expectation firsthand.
