  • Colleen and Nathan Clemens, Franchise Owner

    Colleen and Nathan Clemens

    Franchise Owners

    Meet Colleen and Nathan Clemens proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Beavercreek. Longtime residents of Ohio, the Clemens began their entrepreneurial journey with Primrose Schools¬ in 2012. They are thrilled to bring the Primrose experience, offering premier early education and care, to families in the Beavercreek community. Colleen and Nathan are no strangers to the Primrose brand. In fact, Primrose has been a large part of their family for many years. Their family's story with Primrose started when Nathan's sister began searching for early education and care options for her own son before deciding to enroll him in a Primrose school in Ohio. Extremely impressed with the Primrose experience and the positive impact it had on her son, Nathan's sister began researching the opportunity to open her own school. It was Nathan's sister's own experience as a Primrose parent and later Franchise Owner that inspired other family members, and now Colleen and Nathan, to get involved with Primrose. Today, the families own and operate five schools in Tennessee and Ohio. Colleen and Nathan look forward to opening their new school and enrolling their daughter, Callie, as their first student! Prior to becoming Franchise Owners, Colleen worked as an Operations Analyst for Exel and in international logistics for Smucker. Nathan currently works as a project manager for his family's custom home building business, overseeing construction of new homes and building projects in the Dayton, Ohio area. They are both graduates of Ohio University where Colleen earned a dual degree in international studies and Spanish and Nathan earned a bachelor of arts in business management. Shortly after graduating, Colleen continued her Spanish studies by moving to Spain for a year and teaching English at a bilingual day care center and an after-school academy for adults and children. She credits this experience with building her initial passion for early education and also how she and her family live their lives today fully present and in the moment. Primrose has been a part of our family for many years. So, when the opportunity arose to open our own school, there was no hesitation, said Colleen. We've seen the positive impact the Primrose experience has had on our nieces and nephews who attend a Primrose. And, we feel supported by the Primrose Franchise Owners' community and our own family who can provide their firsthand experiences to help us navigate our way as new Franchise Owners. We're looking forward to introducing Beavercreek families to Primrose Schools! The Clemens' goal is to ensure Beavercreek and surrounding area families and their children are loved and cared for; they will provide them with an atmosphere where children can grow their Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy HeartsŒ¬. At the school, Colleen will handle the day-to-day operations, working closely with parents, children and staff. Nathan will also play a role in the school's operations while continuing his work as a project manager with his family's home construction business. Slated to open in summer 2015, Primrose School of Beavercreek will feature the exclusive Balanced LearningŒ¬ curriculum for children ages 6 weeks to 6-years-old. Developed by and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-based curriculum blends teacher-guided and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development.
