New Daycare and Preschool Opens in Waldron

Dawna Young has been caring for children in her home for the past two decades. That care and dedication is the foundation of the new child care center in Waldron, Primrose Path Daycare and Preschool.

She and her daughter, Danielle Stover, spent the month prior to opening by renovating the historic building located at 650 West 4th Street in Waldron.

Young recalled some of the history behind the building. “It was once a fire department and the city’s water department. It was built sometime in the 1930’s and there are records of a worker using a chisel and a hammer on the corners of the building, earning $.10 cents per hour.”

After the closure of the ARVAC daycare, Young knew it was time to open her own child care center. Currently, Primrose provides care for 12 children, and has six before and after school students. “We can have up to 36, and we are hoping to grow into that,” Young added.

With that growth, she and Stover hope to be able to hire additional staff members. The center boasts a spacious and safe environment for learning and fun. Additionally, the location is a routine school bus stop.

Together this mother-daughter duo are working to ensure that the children of Waldron and Scott County continue to get quality daycare and preschool services. “I love it, it’s my life!” Young concluded.
