    Ms. Anne O'Brien

    Executive Director

    Hello! My name is Anne O'Brien and I am the Executive Director at Primrose School of Chelmsford. I've been with Primrose School of Chelmsford since June 2017 prepping and opening this school from ground up. It was a great experience that I treasure that I was a part of.

    I grew up in Chelmsford so I know the surrounding area and many of the great people who live and work here as well - it's a great place to live and work! I bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from both the public and private sectors of education. I knew from an early age that I wanted to work with children. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education from Salem State University and have 30+ years of experience working with children and 22 years of director experience. It has been and continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences to work with children and their families. My favorite thing about working with small children is having the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of each child. It's awe-inspiring to watch an infant become a toddler and then a preschooler and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their early development and mold them for their future. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!

    I am a mom to a twelve year old daughter whom I love to spend time with. To unwind, I enjoy spending time with my family at the lake!

    Please stop by and visit our Primrose School of Chelmsford. I'd love to meet you, show you our school and introduce you to our fantastic teachers!
