    Franchise Owners

    Welcome! Primrose School of Eagan is a locally owned educational childcare and preschool provider. Our passion and commitment is to provide best in class childcare, bringing the NCA accredited Primrose School educational curriculum to the community of Eagan. Primrose School of Eagan is a family owned business with Diane Storkamp as onsite owner.

    As working parents, childcare has been a part of our daily lives since 2002. Darren and I shared the frustration of finding nurturing, happy and growing environments for our children, alongside the continued challenge of balancing the rewards and demands of career and family. It was with the discovery of Primrose School that we learned the value of the people-first principles behind the Primrose School childcare model. This is a business where we share the same passion and objectives for high quality educational childcare as the community around us.

    We are committed to offering the highest quality early childhood environment and experience. We realize the decisions made as parents are often emotional and challenging, and our hope is we can partner with you on the important decisions around your childcare options. It is our objective to offer families the peace of mind knowing that your children will experience the best in class educational childcare experience, each and every day.

    The Primrose School character development and curriculum-based offerings distinguish Primrose School from other childcare and preschool providers. We have seen first hand what the Primrose School experience has meant for our children, and we are confident the foundation of learning and character development disciplines at Primrose School can make a positive difference in your life as well.

    We are excited for you to experience the Primrose School difference and we are looking forward to meeting you!
