    Administrative Assistant

    Hello, my name is April Patterson, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Primrose School of Avalon Park. I've lived in Orlando, Florida since 2004. I have my AA degree in Business, and decided a year ago to make a career change due to my love and passion to help guide and provide a better future for children. I recently obtained my National Child Development Associates Certification (CDA), and my National Director’s Credential.

    I am a proud mom to two wonderful children, Taylor and Cody. I enjoy spending all of my time with my family on the weekends at the beach, sitting and relaxing by the pool, soccer games, and dance competitions.

    As part of the wonderful Primrose team, my goal is to use my experience to provide and maintain a happy, safe, and healthy learning environment for every child. I look forward to meeting you and your family.

    I began my the Early Childhood career in 2004. I have been apart of Primrose Schools as a Director since 2012. I am an active member of the National Association of the Education of Young Children and a state and local chapter advisory committee member who assist with the professional development of early childhood professionals.

    I am passionate about connecting with others and nurturing relationships. Which, is the foundation to my daily motivation of knowing young children require consistency, dedication and love in these formative years of development.

    I am a mother of two and I simply enjoy being a mommy when not working. My son is involved in sports and musical theater year round, keeping my husband and I busy.

    I look forward to getting to know your family and supporting your child's early childhood experience

    Franchise Owner

    Hello! My name is Seema Naik and it is a privilege for my husband Manoj and I to serve the children and families of Avalon Park and its surrounding communities.

    As parents of two children ( ages 14 & 16) our Primrose story began over 16 years ago when we realized the challenges of finding quality childcare where we lived. It was then, that I envisioned partnering with a program that provided a balanced and overall approach to child development. We are excited to bring to your familes "The Primrose Balanced learning approach" as proud new owners of Primrose School at Avalon Park.

    My past career has been with a large financial institution assuming a varied number of positions including that of an Auditor as well as Regional Customer Service Manager. My life philosophy has always been to be actively involved in our community and our family is a strong advocate of volunteering and contributing to society. You will often find us with our children volunteering at Habitat for Humanity, Second Harvest Food Bank and in Senior Assisted Living homes. One of my passions is teaching cultural dance to children in our society and I have successfully competed in many competitions. The most rewarding aspect for me is how this has helped children with self confidence and social skills whilst staying active.

    We are excited and looking forward to continuing the traditions of Primrose School at Avalon Park and look forward to delivering an exceptional childhood learning experience to our children and families.

    Our staff of teachers are talented and passionate and they know they're making a difference in the lives of our children, our families, and our community. Being a parent I realize what an important decision choosing childcare is. I know you will be impressed with our school as we partner with you to nurture and educate your child.
