Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
Meet Katie DeSciose, proud Franchise Owner of Primrose School at Falling Waters. A life-long advocate of education, Katie is excited to bring the Primrose Experience of premier early education and care to families in the Omaha area.
As a former teacher and school administrator, Katie found herself looking for the next step in her career in which she could continue to provide a quality education and a bright future for children. Already familiar with Primrose Schools, Katie realized that the Primrose core values and goals aligned with her own. Like Primrose, Katie wanted to make a difference in the lives of local children and their families by offering high quality education practices paired with a strong character development program. She was especially drawn to the focus Primrose places on development of the whole child.
“One of the aspects that drew me to Primrose is that they prepare children both for learning and for life,” said Katie. “Beyond academics, which are very important, Primrose also emphasizes that who children become is just as important as what they know. Primrose understands that character development is so essential to having a happy life and maximizing one’s potential.”
Katie graduated from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with a degree in elementary education. She later graduated from Creighton University with a Master’s degree in elementary administration. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering for several organizations that help children. She serves as a mentor for local students, fundraises scholarship money for low income students and volunteers with at-risk expectant mothers.
Katie will be heavily involved in the school’s day-to-day operations. She is a strong believer in solid family partnerships and thoroughly enjoyed working with students and families at her former school. Supporting current and prospective Primrose parents is something she looks forward to as the Franchise Owner of the Primrose School at Falling Waters.
“Research shows that great things happen for children when there is a supportive relationship between both home and school. My goal is for our school to form dynamic partnerships with the families of our students, and it will be a privilege to play a key role in introducing parents to all that Primrose has to offer.”
Primrose School at Falling Waters will feature theBalanced Learning approach in infant through Pre-Kindergarten classrooms. This research-informed approach is developed and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools and blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. The Primrose Explorers before- and after-school program will also be available for students up to age 12.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus were at Primrose this morning and it was so much fun! Children's faces were bright with excitement and there was definitely a feeling of wonder in the air. We were so happy to provide this visit with Santa for our wonderful families.
It’s November, which means it’s time for our national Caring and Giving Food Drive! Read our blog to find fun ways you can help your child lead their own family food drive at home.
We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! We are closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday.
To better meet the individual needs of every child, we’re proud to implement Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®-3 and ASQ®:SE-2) in Primrose schools across the country.
Our Pre-Kindergarten students ended our Caring and Giving Food Drive by shopping for canned goods to donate to Heartland Hope Mission at our local Hy-Vee. As Benjamin the Bear teaches, generosity means giving to others without expecting anything in return. WE RAISED OVER 492 CANNED FOOD ITEMS in addition to cash and gift cards used for our students to shop today. A huge thank you to our Primrose Family for helping us reach our goal in serving our community! #CaringandGiving
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
THANKFUL, GRATEFUL, BLESSED... These seem like the best words to express appreciation for the partnership we share with our Primrose families. We loved hosting #JoOnTheGo for them! #PrimroseProud
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
Congratulations to the Nickel Family who is our October Family of the Month! When asked what they love about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "We love Primrose and and all that you offer. It's important to my husband and I that Elizabeth is in a learning environment full of opportunities, and most important, that she is somewhere safe. I love that we see the same friendly faces at drop off and pick up every day. It's clear that your staff love what they do and love working at Primrose. Thank you for all that you do!" Thank you Nickel Family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters. We love watching Elizabeth learn and grow each day!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
October is Fire Safety Month! We got a visit from the Omaha Fire Department Engine 77. Our Preschool and Pre-K students got to learn about what to do in an emergency, and got to experience being in the fire truck.
Congratulations to the Ritterbush Family who is our Family of the Month! When asked what they loved about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "We really appreciate the educational curriculum that's implemented at Primrose. During our son's first Kindergarten parent-teacher conference, his teacher commented on how well prepared he was to begin school. We also appreciate the care that's been provided to our children. It's nice to drop them off and feel confident that they are safe and well cared for." Thank you Ritterbush Family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters.
