Welcome to the Primrose School of Evergreen!
Meet the Patels – Bejal, Mohit, Pankil and Lipi. This family takes great pride in introducing the Primrose School of Evergreen – a premier preschool nestled in a heritage building on a spacious 1.7-acre lot committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children. Their family’s legacy of providing high-quality education led them to open their Primrose school.
An engineer by profession, Mohit has earned a Master of Science degree from Johns Hopkins University in Bioinformatics where he graduated with honors. In his career previously, he went from supporting various military agencies to managing a team for a multi-billion dollar company. His wife Bejal, has completed her Masters in Communications from the prestigious Manipal University. She is an enthusiastic communications specialist with experience in Corporate Communications, Public Relations, Branding and Media Analyst for many Fortune 500 companies.
Having attended a boarding school at the age of 5, Bejal realized the struggle her parents faced while looking for a school that would give her a well-rounded start to the journey of learning. Since then, she is a stickler for high-quality education and is passionate about providing an environment that fosters all aspects of a students’ development. Since both came from families who laid integral importance to academics, Mohit turned his personal and business focus to education to make their dream come true.
When his brother Pankil and wife Lipi were looking for a preschool for their daughter Pearl their uncle, a proud Primrose owner introduced them to Primrose Schools®. When they saw the curriculum in action, they realized how the program naturally instills curiosity in children by helping them develop a strong foundation and love for future learning by practicing concepts in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) as part of the Balanced Learning ®approach, which combines purposeful play with nurturing guidance. Coming from a business development and management background, Pankil wanted to bring the Primrose Experience to communities that deserved access to the same.
Living in the epicenter of tech economy where most schools follow an aggressive academic-based curriculum the Patels recognized a need for high-quality early education in the Bay Area. Since children here often feel the pressure to succeed academically, the Balanced Learning approach will help instill a true lifelong joy for learning in children. Primrose encourages a child to be a child by focusing on building children’s confidence and independence, so they feel comfortable venturing out, exploring on their own and asking questions – all of which help them develop a love of learning they take with them into elementary school and beyond.
The Patels want to provide parents with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are well-cared for while receiving a high-quality early education. They will each put their passion for lifelong learning, education and their business backgrounds to use in their school.
We are delighted to provide unique learning experiences to the youngest citizens of the Silicon Valley.
We aren't just a daycare in San Jose, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, just minutes down the road from the Evergreen Village Square at the intersection of Ruby Avenue and Aborn Road.

In the dramatic play center, our Pathways students had fun pretending to be at the flower shop. Children recorded their flower order, selected the flowers, and wrapped them with paper to create bouquets. They practiced counting numbers as they pretended to purchase. When cleaning up, children learned to sort the flowers by color and place them in a matching color bucket. 💐🌼🌺🌸

We had a special visit from Evergreen Family Dentistry! 🦷 Dr. Ujjwala Dorlikar and her amazing team visited our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes to talk about the importance of maintaining good oral health at an early age.

The day is also meant to celebrate the birthday of the beloved children's author, Dr. Seuss. This event brings together kids, parents, teachers, librarians and others to engage in a variety of reading activities. Above all, Read Across America Day is a wonderful opportunity to instill a love of reading in children and to emphasize the importance of literacy for their future success. 📚
Today, we conducted an earthquake drill and evacuated the building. 🚨 Our Infants to Pre-K classes did an amazing job staying calm, getting out safely and relocating far away from the building. Training and drill exercises offer the opportunity for children and staff to learn their roles and responsibilities before, during, and after any type of emergency. Great job Primrose School of Evergreen! 🤗

Lunar New Year is celebrated throughout many Asian cultures for multiple days.

In our Wonder and Venture programs, our students are learning about motion and how positions of objects may change with a push or pull. Through hands on experiences, the students explored with rolling balls through paint, using a wand to move a magnet ball or created texture art with the wheels of a car. They had so much fun learning about motion through transportation, objects rolling on a smooth surface and directionality!
At Primrose School of Evergreen, our Adopt-A-Grandparent Program is an integral part of our curriculum. The concept of "adopting a grandparent" is for children to build a relationship with a local senior citizen. This program is to help young children develop genuine relationships with senior citizens in their community while providing welcome social contact for the senior citizens. Both young and old are stimulated through meaningful participation in each other's lives. This program creates opportunities for our young children to develop respectful, positive relationships with a different generation that they may not usually be around. 👵🏼👴🏼
To end the year, our families joined us to watch our Pathways, Preschool and Pre-K Winter Wonderland performances! ☃️ Our children sang their little heart outs and danced their jingles all the way! 🎄 We hope you all had a wonderful holiday break! ♥️
Thank you to all who donated to our amazing food drive. Our children helped to earn money, went shopping to buy the food, and then packed it in boxes to give to others. We raised over $700 and purchased 384 items of non-perishable goods and canned foods.🥫 It was beautiful to watch them participate in this act of caring from beginning to end. 🧡
For the month of November, the students at Primrose School of Evergreen participated in Caring and Giving events in a meaningful way.

We remain committed to providing a clean and safe environment where children can thrive. Our school uses an indoor air purification system - Air Scrubber by Aerus designed to reduce the pathogens from the air supply through the HVAC system, helping to limit the spread of viruses. Our HVAC system also pumps fresh air into our classrooms and then circulates the air only in that classroom. This is just one component of the measures to keep our families and staff healthy and safe. 💕

Congratulations on the recent or soon-to-be addition to your family! This time in life is full of so many decisions – from which diaper brand is best to which pediatrician to call – and all of them can be nerve wracking. But for many parents, the decision that often causes the most angst is, “Who will take care of my child while I’m at work?”

Our priority at Primrose School of Evergreen is caring for your child's overall well-being.
A parent’s greatest hope is for his or her child to grow into a happy, successful adult.
Does the idea of your little one asking if he can help you clear the dinner table sound like a dream? We believe who children become is as important as what they know. At Primrose®, we teach responsibility at a young age through assigned classroom jobs such as weather reporter, line leader, and lunch and snack helper.
Life can be a difficult balancing act for Parents. You work tirelessly to raise your children, stay on top of demanding work schedules, and make time for friends and extended family. Living under the restrictions of Covid-19 has only exacerbated these challenges. As the leaders in early childhood education and care, we know the challenges that you face, and we know that it is now more important than ever to enroll your child in quality early childcare programs.
Every parent wants their child to grow up to be a good person, full of kindness, integrity, confidence and compassion, so it would make sense to begin nurturing these skills as soon as children are old enough to “get it,” right? But what age is that, exactly?
It’s no surprise then that approximately 9 out of 10 Primrose pre-kindergarten students demonstrated readiness for kindergarten during the 2018-2019 school year.*
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra. But it isn't.
