Welcome to the Primrose School of Ankeny at Prairie Trail!

We are the proud owners, Lyndi and Sean McVey. As Midwesterners who met at Drake University, we have always valued education. With two children of our own, Shannon and Connor, early childhood education is of the utmost importance to us as a family and we are so excited to bring the first Primrose school to Iowa!

We first discovered the Primrose difference while living in Orlando, Florida where our daughter was born. Primrose’s commitment to a balance of purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers, coupled with a solid foundation of health and safety, led our daughter to thriving in her early years in Orlando, while giving us, as busy working parents, priceless peace of mind.

We jumped at the opportunity to move back to the Midwest to be closer to family in 2016 and found ourselves living in Prairie Trail. While we love our neighborhood, we have missed having a local Primrose school. We are incredibly excited to offer this for our own children, our neighborhood, and the surrounding communities!

Being Prairie Trail residents, we know that Primrose will be a perfect addition to the community. We can’t wait to see how everyone comes to love Primrose as much as we did in Florida. We understand that the choice of where to send children for their early childhood education is a large decision, and not one to be taken lightly. Lyndi will be active in the school and looks forward to the chance to meet you, show you the Primrose difference, and build a trusted relationship.

For some additional background about us: Sean graduated from Drake with his BS in Computer Science and earned his MS from University of Central Florida. Lyndi graduated from Drake with her doctorate in pharmacy (PharmD) followed by residency training and board certification in Florida with Sean. When not working, you can find us enjoying time with Shannon and Connor at the aquatic centers, camping, playing in the yard, or walking our dog.

Who children become is as important as what they know is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.

We are excited to meet you and your family!
