Primrose South Tampa School to attend Fit Kids Playground Events!

No Comments Uncategorized

We could not be more delighted to have the Primrose School of South Tampa support our Fit Kids Playground events, as well as sponsor the Hyde Park Village Kids Market!

Opening up in August 2013, they will be a wonderful addition to the South Tampa neighborhood that they serve. Their Vision is to deliver the best and most trusted early childhood education and child care services for families across America. They strive to commit to being at their personal and professional best each day because they realize they are role models for the children.

Their state of the art facility will be run by Richard and Jana Radtke, who also own other Primrose locations in Tampa, FL. They are long time Primrose School owners with their family deeply rooted into making each school an amazing success. “With deep roots in the Primrose community, we are incredibly devoted to bringing the best possible child care experience to our South Tampa communities. We understand the importance of instilling a love of learning throughout a child’s early years, and we believe this is essential to building a new generation of bright students!”, said Ms. Christy Blackard, new Director of Primrose South Tampa.

Opening in August 2013, Primrose School of South Tampa will be the first urban, LEED-certified Primrose School in the Tampa market and will feature the exclusive Balanced LearningR Curriculum for children ages six weeks to 5 years old as well as through their after school programs for elementary students from public school (transportation provided).

We hope that you will stop by and visit them at one of our events in the near future!

Push Away The Screen Giveaway

9 Comments Giveaways, Push Away The Screen, Tampa

As a We Can! Community Partner, one of the Fit Kids Playground missions is promote reducing screen time among families. This seems like a simple concept, but as parents, we struggle with knowing how much is too much, when to say when and with technology becoming more rapidly integrated into homework, the lines can easily become blurred.
