Falgun & Krishna Patel with Dev & Deeya


We are Falgun & Krishna Patel, the proud owners of Primrose School of Ellicott City.

We migrated to the United States 20 years ago and now live in Ellicott City, Maryland with our two lovely children, Dev and Deeya.

Our Primrose story began in 2012 shortly after the birth of our first child. Growing up in India, it is not common to send a child to care centers, so when Dev was born, we were lost on what to do. As we searched for a quality child care center in the area, we quickly discovered there were limited options that provided the type of learning, safety and environment we desired for our son and a peace of mind for us as parents. At that moment, we realized there were likely many other parents going through a similar situation, and we knew we wanted to do something to improve this.

As we started looking to build a business that would help other families and open an early childhood education center, something my father told me as a child continued to come to mind, “one may lose wealth, health and fame - but education and knowledge are the only things that stay with you forever.” So after three years of research, when we found Primrose Schools, we knew we wanted to be part of the Primrose family based on their desire to help build the right foundation for future learning and in life.

Who children become is as important as what they know is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.

We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families!!

We, along with our partners and family friends, Viral & Krupali Patel and Samir & Mital Patel are excited to welcome you and your family to our school, Primrose School of Ellicott City.
