Welcome to Primrose Hill Community Project
Primrose Hill Community Project is a limited company with charitable status. The project was formed by staff at Primrose Hill Community School (now Ark Rose Academy) to promote the sense of community and to encourage adult learning and development through support and training to improve outcomes for local families. Over time, the project has evolved to include the founding of a neighbourhood nursery for the local community and to incorporate the Children’s Centre.
Children’s Centres have been set up by the government in the most excluded areas for people that need childcare, family support and community outreach. We were designated as a Children’s Centre in March 2007 and have been growing steadily since then. We offer high quality childcare and education integrated with family support, health advice and other vital community services.
Friendly, motivated staff
We have a highly motivated and friendly staff who have a broad and diverse range of knowledge plus an abundance of experience in the local area. We pride ourselves on our inclusive approach and the high standard of childcare and education that we provide. We are rapidly expanding our client base and our aim is to help every person in our reach area that we possibly can, by being at the heart of the community.
Making a difference
At the heart of the organisation is an ethos to help the community flourish through encouraging everyone to contribute and be the best they can be. Whether this is through training, childcare, attending groups or simply being community minded, the goal is to raise aspirations, improve quality of life and contribute to a safe, friendly and vibrant community. Whilst this is a challenge it is one that we feel is at the heart of all organisations such as ours and that any contribution, no matter how small, can make a big difference.
Looking forwards, the organisation has a very solid platform on which to build its services, increase its client base and achieve sustainability. It is important that costs remain low and that best value is maintained as it is imperative that we build up the reserves, which is the only major financial concern.
