    Jon and Sharon Tanner

    Franchise Owner

    Jon and Sharon Tanner and are the owners of the Primrose School of Edmond. We have been residents of Oklahoma City for over 45 years. In June of 2008 we opened the first Oklahoma Primrose School in the city of Edmond. The first time we toured a Primrose school we were very impressed with the curriculum, operational approach, and atmosphere. As we learned more about Primrose we became increasingly impressed with their balanced learning approach. We decided that while our children did not have the opportunity to attend a Primrose School, we could bring Primrose to Oklahoma and our families. Call now to register your child and begin a partnership that will enrich your child's future.
