Kurtis and Michelle Parks - Brad and Christine Thompson

Meet Brad and Christine Thompson and Kurtis and Michelle Parks – the proud owners of the Primrose School of Ballwin. These two couples believe strongly in the Primrose commitment to developing the whole child. They are honored to bring a premier early education experience to families living in West County.

Christine and Michelle are educators, sisters and West County residents who are looking forward to changing the lives of children in their own community. Together they hold over fifteen years of teaching experience. Their strong understanding and value for education led them to their desire to open their own Primrose School.

Both families place a strong value on education, which led them to have a deep appreciation for the balanced learning approach that combines purposeful play and nurturing guidance. They were also drawn to the Primrose belief that, who a child becomes is as important as what a child knows, which is emphasized in the thoughtful character education program that is unique to Primrose Schools.

Christine and Brad Thompson have three children and they are looking forward to watching their children flourish in the Primrose environment both in the preschool and explorer programs. Their family enjoys traveling, exploring new places in St. Louis and being an active part of the Ballwin community.

Michelle and Kurtis Parks are recently married and live in Wildwood. They enjoy being outdoors and love the hands-on curriculum Primrose provides. They look forward to building a school that their children will one day learn and grow in.

The Thompson and Parks families are excited to bring this premier educational experience to the children in the West County area. We would love for you to be a part of our Primrose family and help your children build Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts.

Our family would love to meet yours.
