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.”

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.

Simply the Best...the words from the iconic Tina Turner song were on my mind last night on the evening of her passing. They seemed to be very fitting for PreK Graduation and an evening celebrating many BESTS. The Water's Edge Church has been the best neighbors to us, opening up their beautiful church with nothing but hospitality and generosity for our Graduation. We thank our families for trusting us with the education and care of these amazing children and showing daily cooperation toward all our endeavors. We are better because YOU were here. Our amazing PreK teaching team of Ms. Johnson and Ms. Martin, prepared our graduates for Kindergarten with unparalleled passion and skill, and they represent all that so honorable in the teaching profession. Our Leadership Team makes LIFE happen and keeps all the balls in the air for everyone and everything. They are the hardest working people you will ever meet and, like all unsung heroes, it mostly happens with little recognition. It has been a privilege to watch our PreK graduates grow up. They have worked hard this year, grown in many ways, and made us laugh at some point during each day. They are the REASON for all we do. So, was I right? SIMPLY THE BEST...they certainly are! #primroseproud
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.
Congratulations to the Bender Family who is our March Family of the Month! When we asked them what they love about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "We are extremely honored to be named as the Family of the Month at Primrose School at Falling Waters. Jen and myself are very proud parents of a beautiful 4 ½ year old little girl named Ruby, aka Rooster. As parents who will not settle for anything but the absolute best for our Rooster Girl, we were thrilled to learn that a school like this existed, and it was also only about 3 miles from our house! Primrose School at Falling Waters has positively impacted, changed and bettered our daughter's life in so many ways. For that, we are extremely grateful, and Primrose will forever have a very special place in our hearts. After meeting with the Director and touring the school, we immediately knew that Primrose was the place for us and our Ruby. Our goal was to find a Pre-K setting that would best prepare Ruby for Kindergarten, which she will be attending this upcoming August. Prior to attending Primrose, Ruby spent her days at home with her mom, Jen, since she is a stay-at-home mom. While this was a huge blessing, it also meant that Ruby did not have near the amount of peer interactions that other children her age received by attending school prior to Pre-K. Any concern we had about this went away immediately after her first day at Primrose. Drop off went better than we had imagined (it was much harder on me for sure) and when we picked Ruby up at the end of the day, she was full of joy and excitement and was already looking forward to coming back the following day. She had made so many new friends, learned new things and instantly fell in love with her teachers. One teacher in particular, Mrs. Martin, has made a huge impression on Ruby, and has greatly impacted her life. The fondness and love they have for each other is heartwarming and obvious. This is also true of all the staff members at Primrose. I can honestly say that we have never had a negative experience. Every single staff member is consistently pleasant, kind, informative, helpful and caring. We know, without a doubt, that Ruby is prepared and excited to start Kindergarten this year. She has also blossomed into an amazing, outgoing, very intelligent, rule abiding, pleasant little girl. We owe so much of this to this amazing school that we feel is truly the best there is! Our final day at Primrose will be a sad day, without a doubt. The incredible things you have done for our family and our Rooster Girl will never be forgotten. Forever grateful, The Bender Family – Rodney, Jen, Rooster, Tate, Jadyn, Bryn, Reese and Crew – and also Merle, Millie and Itsy!! Thank you to the Bender family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters. We love watching Ruby learn and grow each day! #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 Hudnut Family, who is our February Family of the Month! When asked what they love about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "After our recent move to Elkhorn we were searching for the best school that would be the best fit for our son Jack to start his preschool journey. Luckily, our friends guided us to Primrose! From our first tour we found an attentive, transparent, and well organized staff. Our teachers have made Jack feel welcome and included. The communication throughout the day is so helpful. We love the thoughtful curriculum in the classroom provided even to the youngest kiddos. Navigating new schools is overwhelming, luckily we found Primrose and we couldn't be happier with our choice!" Thank you Hudnut family for those kind words and for being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters. We love watching Jack learn and grow everyday!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Congratulations to the Kaiser Family who is our Family of the Month! When asked what they loved about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "When looking into daycare options 5 years ago, it was important to find somewhere in development and education. When we found Primrose School at Falling Waters we found a match. We loved that from infancy, our kids were learning! They know basic sign language, eat a variety of foods, and are always engaging in developmental activities based on their age to prepare them for the future. We are amazed how much our kids learn, and we're so thankful for the Primrose staff that have helped them become who they are today. It also helps that our kids love their teachers. We talk about them daily and usually have to play "school" to recreate the things they learn during the day. We're forever thankful for Primrose School at Falling Waters." Thank you to the Kaiser Family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters. We love watching Brigham and Maddox learn and grow each day!
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.
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!
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.
