Rhode Island Advocacy for Children is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization that was found by parents of children with special needs. Our organization works to advocate for children by helping families navigate through the complexities of educational rights. We work to provide a voice to families and to advocate for their child’s unique needs. We know that it takes courage to ask for help and how overwhelming it is to navigate through an educational system that doesn’t work for your child. We are the additional support that families need to discover their child’s potential and to remove educational obstacles.

Primrose was created to provide meaningful educational opportunities through play in a warm and naturalistic environment. We are comprised of one toddler classroom and Pre-k classroom, providing an intimate experience for families. Our students begin at 18 months and families have the option of choosing a schedule of 2-5 days per week.
Young children are active learners who benefit most from hands-on activities. Primrose teachers approach every activity with the intention of creating a meaningful learning experience that is individualized to meet each child’s needs. At Primrose Preschool we also believe in the importance of time outdoors as there are lessons learned in nature that cannot be taught within the classroom. Time spent outdoors enhances creative play, provides natural opportunities for the development of social and motor skills, and teaches children an appreciation for the world around them.
