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
Meet Urvi and Beau Athia – the proud Owners of Primrose School of Andover! The Athias, originally from the greater Washington, D.C. area, are delighted to be a part of the Andover community.
The Athias bring to Primrose Schools a unique blend of early education experience and entrepreneurial expertise. Urvi holds a Bachelor of Education degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree from York University in Toronto and draws upon 15 years of hands on experience in the early child care field. Beau holds a Master of Science degree in Real Estate Development and Finance from New York University, and over the last 20 years has become a seasoned hotel developer.
As parents, Beau and Urvi know firsthand how essential the first five years are to a child’s development and future. Who a child becomes is just as, if not more, important than what they know. Primrose School of Andover features the Balanced Learning® curriculum in Infant through Kindergarten classrooms. Developed and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-informed curriculum blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.
Urvi and Beau are excited to have more time to spend with their daughter and son. Their daughter has graduated from Primrose School of Andover and their son is currently enrolled. Additionally, Beau and Urvi are committed to giving back to the community. Each year they support various local organizations, while also supporting the Primrose Promise corporate social responsibility program.
