I am Vibhuti Vaghani, the proud owner of Primrose School of Carol Stream. My husband, Vishal, and I are blessed with two boys. As a parent, I value early childhood education because I was taught that education is the foundation of life when growing up. Education shapes who we are and what we aspire to be. When we were looking for schools for our oldest son, there weren’t any schools that wowed us. Due to very limited options in our neighborhood, we enrolled our children at a nearby school. My oldest son started reading at age four, which was incredible to see as a parent! My youngest son was using sign language to communicate with us. Once I saw the difference it made in their lives, I was convinced that early childhood education plays a key role in the first five years of a child’s life. I knew that I wanted to do something that was more meaningful, to wake up each day with a purpose and to make a difference in our community. Early Childhood Education easily became the path that I wanted to pursue. I looked at all the childcare centers that were franchises and found my calling with Primrose. Primrose took early childhood education to another level. Their focus was on a “whole child”. A child that would learn how to be kind, compassionate and confident. A child that would be nurtured to develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. Primrose calls this Balanced Learning®. The Balanced Learning® Approach is exclusive to Primrose. It is a research-based blend of teacher guided and child-initiated activities with an emphasis on character development. “Who children become is as important as what they know” is at the core of the Balanced Learning. Thus began my journey into bringing exceptional childcare into my community.
Primrose CEO Jo Kirchner is a huge inspiration to me because she started out with four Primrose Schools in Atlanta to over 375 Schools in the United States. Her mission to bring quality education and care to every child in America motivated me to open my own Primrose School and to deliver the best and most trusted early education and care for the children and families in my community.
We are Dunkin Franchisees and together we have successfully operated our business for ten years. We built our first ground up Dunkin in Carol Stream and the love we received from this community was beyond our imagination. This is why building our first school in Carol Stream was extremely important to us. Giving back to this community and building relationships has been a priority for us and will always be.
I am thrilled to bring The Primrose Experience to the community of Carol Stream. Our goal is to provide the right foundation and spark light bulb moments so children can grow their active minds, healthy bodies and happy hearts while providing peace of mind for our parents. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
We are excited to welcome you to the Primrose Family.
