Welcome to Primrose Schools!

We are Amit & Nita Thakor, proud owners of Primrose School of Atlee Commons!

We discovered Primrose in 2014 when looking for high quality childcare for our first born, Grayson. We were impressed with Primrose from the moment we walked in and saw the clean and welcoming environment. We immediately knew Primrose was the perfect choice for our family. Our second child, Sage, also attended Primrose as an infant and thrived. Primrose helped place the foundation for learning and curiosity that we still see in them both today. 

We are excited to continue to be part of the Primrose family and now the Hanover Community!

Prior to becoming Primrose franchise owners, Amit operated and managed hotels for over 20 years. He graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Hospitality & Management and Business.  Nita is a family practice physician and attended the College of Charleston in South Carolina. After completing residency at St. Francis Hospital in Midlothian, she worked at Patient First for 8 years and is currently doing telemedicine.

We continue to be amazed by Primrose’s outstanding approach to education, the accredited curriculum, enrichment and character development. “Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of the Primrose Balanced Learning® approach, and one that we both feel very passionate about. 

We welcome you to the Primrose of Atlee Commons, and look forward to meeting you!
