I am Mike Patel, the proud owner of Primrose School of Downtown Bethesda. My wife, Malina, and I are blessed with two wonderful children. As parents and experienced business owners, we understand the importance of the high-quality educational childcare that Primrose schools provides and we are thrilled to bring the Primrose Experience to the families of Downtown Bethesda.
After researching many schools for our children, we were fortunate to come across the opportunity to learn about the unmatched curriculum, teaching methods, and passion for education that Primrose schools delivers. We quickly became avid supporters and felt compelled to bring the Primrose Experience to our area.
Education shapes who we are and what we aspire to be. We recognize that quality early childhood education and care with an emphasis on character development nurtures the foundation for one's future academic and personal successes. We believe we can help forge the path for a brighter future, and are devoted to making a difference for the children of America, starting with the community of Downtown Bethesda. We are minutes from NIH, Walter Reed, and the new Marriott Headquarters in the heart of Downtown Bethesda!
Primrose School of Downtown Bethesda is located at 8101 Glenbrook Rd. For more information, visit www.PrimroseDB.com.
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Bethesda daycare. Right down the street from Suburban Hospital and next to Battery Lane Urban Park, we are conveniently located on Glenbrook Road.
