  • Joe and Sarah Piket, Franchise Owner

    Joe and Sarah Piket

    Franchise Owners

    My name is Joe Piket, and my wife Sarah and I are the Franchise Owners for the Primrose School of Champlin Park and the Primrose School of Maple Grove. We live in Maple Grove with our two children Riley and Gabrielle (when they are not away at college). As working parents, child care had been a part of Sarah and my lives since the birth of our children in 2000. Sarah and I, like many parents, had to balance the demands of family and careers all the while wondering if having our children in child care all day was good for them. From our own experience, we clearly recognized the importance of quality child care and the impact it has on children's lives. For the most part, I felt that the child care my children received was providing the basics of a safe, secure and happy environment. However, I always felt that something was missing from the local child care providers I entrusted my children with every day. That something missing was the learning component. With many children in child care for 8+ hours a day there was a great opportunity to teach them more about the world around them and to leverage their love for learning at a time in their lives when their capacity to learn was as great as it will ever be. Our Maple Grove School opened in 2008, and having seen Primrose positively impact the lives of many families and children there, I wanted to bring the same experience to the families in the Brooklyn Park / Champlin area. With the opening of Primrose School of Champlin Park in 2012, we have achieved that goal. I look forward to talking to you about Primrose Schools and how it can serve the needs of your children and your family.
