Company. Savannah worked in a variety of classrooms at the Newmarket location and eventually
accepted a director’s position. Savannah is beyond excited to be continuing her career at Primrose as

When the opportunity arose to work for Primrose Savannah thought that this would be a great fit.
Primrose embodies many qualities of education that Savannah believes are essential to learning.
Primrose focuses on purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers in their Balanced Learning
approach and there truly is no better way to engage children. Savannah truly appreciates that Primrose
places just as much importance on who children become as they do with what children know. Savannah
is very eager to welcome families to the Exeter location.
Savannah lives in Newmarket with her husband, Robert. Savannah and Robert are recently married and
excited to see what this new chapter in their lives has in store for them. They currently enjoy spending
time with their two dogs, Dani and Argus. Savannah enjoys spending time with her family and friends,
reading, being active, and attending community events.
We are the proud owners, Chelsey and Brandon Derry, of Primrose School of Exeter. We are thrilled to bring Primrose Schools premier early education and care to the children and families of Exeter and the surrounding New Hampshire communities.
Before owning Primrose School of Exeter, both Chelsey and Brandon served in the United States Air Force, where they met. After Chelsey completed her duty in the Air Force, she pursued a successful career in Finance working for multiple organizations across the country and in the Seacoast of New Hampshire. In her career, her primary focus has been helping small local organizations grow to the next level of financial growth, while also being an active community member and mother of her children. Brandon, continues to serve in the New Hampshire Air National Guard, received his MBA from the University of New Hampshire, and followed the path of Aviation & Community support that led him to working as a Program Manager for General Electric.
When returning back to New England to raise their family, after completing an Active-Duty Air Force service commitment, both Chelsey and Brandon were faced with the task as working parents of trying to find quality child care that would help their two children physically, mentally and socially. In this pursuit, they discovered Primrose Schools, and instantly knew it was the right place for their children due to the unique and purposeful Balanced Learning® approach.
After experiencing Primrose Schools first-hand, Chelsey and Brandon became passionate about bringing to the Exeter community and were driven to make a career change. Chelsey focuses on the overall daily operations of school and managing the school’s financials, using her business degree from the University of New Mexico. Brandon manages the school’s marketing and community activities and also serves as the schools IT department.
Our goal at Primrose School of Exeter is to provide students with a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow with Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts® while providing parents with peace of mind knowing their children are receiving premier education while being well cared for.
