Primrose School at Rancho Sienna under construction
Primrose School at Rancho Sienna is now under construction across from Rancho Sienna Elementary School, at Via de Sienna Boulevard and Magona Trail.
Designed to accommodate up to 204 children, Primrose School at Rancho Sienna is owned by Georgetown resident Joe Palma and his daughter, Tina Folts, who lives in Rancho Sienna.
Primrose School at Rancho Sienna will enroll children ranging from infants to kindergarten age. It will offer after-school programs for children ages 5-12, with bus pick-up at select elementary schools in the area. Summer camp programs will also be offered.
The school will have 11 classrooms and will employ approximately 35 teachers, staff members and administrators.
“Opening this new school in Rancho Sienna will allow us to expand in Georgetown, an area we have grown to love and are proud to call home,” said Tina, who has more than 10 years of experience teaching children in schools throughout the greater Austin area.
“Our goals are to offer premier child care and a rewarding work environment. We also plan to give back to our community through local nonprofit groups that benefit children right here in Williamson County,” said Joe.
The father-and-daughter team first discovered Primrose Schools when Tina was researching daycare options for her own daughter.
“After we saw the innovative methods that Primrose had developed, we were immediately impressed. They were unlike anything we had ever seen before in the daycare and education field,” Tina said.
After decades of working at Austin’s Freescale Semiconductor and other companies, Joe decided to begin a new career offering Georgetown parents a premium childcare option.
Tina closed her home daycare to join her dad in the venture, and together they opened Primrose School of Georgetown in 2013.
For pre-opening information on Primrose School at Rancho Sienna, please call the Georgetown school at 512.868.4000.
“We welcome everyone to tour our school in Georgetown, and to know that we are very excited to soon be a part of Rancho Sienna,” Joe said. “We are very much looking forward to partnering with Liberty Hill Elementary School and Newland, to offer residents and neighbors a new childcare option right in the heart of the community.”
Founded in 1982, Primrose School has grown to more than 300 schools throughout the United States. In 1998, it became the first early childhood education organization to earn national accreditation from AdvancED, a 100-year-old non-profit that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of pre-K-12 schools and school systems
