Hello, my name is Traci Mackintosh and I have been working in child care centers since 1995 and have worked for Primrose since June 2001.  I currently live in Frisco and am a native Texan!  My daughter, Amy, attends the University of North Texas and is studying education to become an educational diagnostician. 
 
During my tenure at Primrose I have served in many different positions - kindergarten teacher, Assistant Director, Director of Education and Director.  I love my time at the Primrose School of Prosper getting to know the children, parents and staff.  Each day I look forward to seeing what fun and amazing things happen at our school.
