Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
Opening our school in 2008 and building our family of current and past students has been truly an honor. Originally from Texas, we moved to Arizona in 2001. We both attended Hardin-Simmons University and Todd received his CPA and later an MBA from Southern Methodist University. Todd held the position of Chief Financial Officer for multiple companies serving the financial services industry. Veronica was with State Farm for sixteen years before having the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. She has the unique perspective of having both a working career with children in preschool as well as children in a stay-at-home environment. We have two daughters, Kristen and Kathryn, both University of Arizona graduates. Kristen completed her Masters in Education in 2017 and taught in the Cincinnati school district for four years. She and her husband Andrew returned to Phoenix when he completed medical school. Kristen resumed her leadership role at the school in 2019. Kathryn will graduate from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University this May. She has accepted a position and will start her career here in Phoenix. Our greatest joy is simply spending time together as a family.
Our interest in opening a premier educational pre-school was twenty plus years in the making. As working parents, we had the rare fortune of finding quality educational child care. It helped to shape our children's lives and foster their love of education. Our girls thoroughly enjoyed their childcare experience. It is our goal for every parent to experience that same peace of mind. We recognize the importance parents place on the safety and education of their children. We are committed to living up to that trust by creating a happy and nurturing environment. As owners, we are actively involved and excited to deliver the best educational experience possible! We appreciate what it means to have an impact on a child's life and we always treat each child as if they are our own. This drives every decision we make.
At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
We aren't just a daycare in Phoenix, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, just minutes down the road from Kyrene del Milenio Elementary School on East Chandler Boulevard.
