    Kim Shannon

    Executive Director

    Hello, my name is Kim Shannon, and I am happily married with two grown daughters. During my career in education, I have instructed children from infants to teens. I have over 30 years of experience and have earned my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. I also possess a CDA, a Directors' Credential and VPK certification. I have served in the capacity of teacher, director, and executive director. I have been employed with Primrose since 2010, first as Director for Primrose St Johns Forest then as Area Director over 3 Primrose Schools in Jacksonville.  I had the opportunity to open Primrose School on Crosswater Parkway as the Director in 2017. With the expansion of four additional classrooms, I am now the Executive Director. I am truly passionate about children and their early education. I am happy to be a part of the Primrose family. I welcome you to our Primrose family and please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.

    Educational Background:  Bachelor’s degree in early childhood education

    My favorite thing about working with children is when they light up with the gratification of learning something for the first time!

    My favorite children’s book is The Giving tree by Shel Silverstein, which is a classic written in 1964 which reveals kindness and caring for others instead of ourselves.

    In my personal time I interact with my five dogs, wakeboard, paddleboard and kayak or swim. I love curling up with my puppy and a delightful book as well!
