Coming Soon: Premier Education and Care for Children of Bellevue Area
Two-story conversion project brings $3.5 million in development costs to community

BELLEVUE, Wash. (April 3, 2018) – Bellevue families will soon have access to high-quality early childhood education when the new Primrose School of West Bellevue opens its doors. Local Franchise Owners Shannon and Erik Peterson are converting the former Bellefield Office Park conference center building into a new preschool for children whose parents live and work in the Bellevue area.

The two-story early childhood education facility will be a unique design for Primrose Schools with an abundance of windows on every side of the building to maximize the amount of natural lighting inside and provide the children with excellent views of the inspiring greenspace that surrounds the school. Children will look forward to playing in the brand-new playground area, which consists of over 5,000-square-feet of secure play space divided into three separate age appropriate sections on the south side of the building to take advantage of as much sun exposure as possible.

“We want our school to provide parents with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are well cared for, safe and loved every day,” said Shannon Peterson, Franchise Owner of Primrose School of West Bellevue. “Our community deserves the type of premier early childhood education program that only a Primrose school can offer, and we are thrilled to be the ones to bring the Primrose Experience® to our community.”
The approximately 14,400-square-foot school will feature 13 private classrooms and is designed to serve around 200 local children and their families. The school will add approximately $3.5 million in project costs to the local economy and will bring approximately 40 new jobs to Bellevue once operating at full capacity.

The new school is expected to open in the next few months and will be the second Primrose school in the state of Washington.

Like the other more than 375 Primrose schools across the country, Primrose School of West Bellevue will offer the Primrose-exclusive Balanced Learning® approach, which blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, confidence, creativity and compassion.

“We send the warmest of congratulations to Shannon and Erik Peterson on the development of their new school, Primrose School of West Bellevue,” said Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose Schools. “At Primrose, we pride ourselves on offering our Franchise Owners and teachers outstanding support and proven tools as they help children grow and learn in a safe, nurturing environment. We are confident Shannon and Erik will do just that for the children of Bellevue and its surrounding communities.”

Primrose School of West Bellevue will be located in the Bellefield Office Park at 1150 114th Avenue SE, Bellevue, WA. For more information on the school, please visit
