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 month we are celebrating World Music and it is all about sharing music with others and using song and dance to connect with your community. Listen to our Harmony & Heart® albums to discover songs from across the globe and help your child connect to the world around them! #WorldMusicDay #PrimroseSummerAlbum #HarmonyandHeart #PrimroseSchools
Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
Dads, Grandpas, and special friends gathered to celebrate our Donuts with Dad event!
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 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.
Congratulations to the Cary Family who is our June Family of the Month! When asked what they loved about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "We ultimately chose Primrose School at Falling Waters because we could tell our child would receive the most intentional care. We toured other facilities and were impressed with Primrose School at Falling Waters because the facilities were so clean, every staff member knew each kid's name, and the staff were very transparent and friendly. We continue to take our son, Cooper, because we know he is cared for, treated as an individual, and his learning is supported daily. We have had the best teachers and the best experience!" Thank you to the Cary Family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters! We love watching Cooper learn and grow each day!
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
We celebrated beautiful new beginnings as we prepare to send our Pre-Kindergarten class to the next part of their educational journeys.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
Congratulations to the Berens family for being chosen to be our March Family of the Month! When asked what they loved about Primrose School at Falling Waters they said, "We joined the Primrose family in the middle of the pandemic when times were uncertain and very stressful. However, the support from Primrose was the one constant in our lives! We will forever be grateful for the safe, calm, and welcoming environment they continue to provide. We believe that Levi and Eden feel just as loved at Primrose as they do at home. We appreciate the daily feedback highlighting our children's strengths! It has been a joy to see their confidence and independence grow because of Primrose’s fun and creative approach in their curriculum. They adore their teachers, friends, and Mr. Morris’s cooking!!" Love, Josh, Megan, Levi & Eden Thank you to the Berens family for those kind words and being a part of our family here at Primrose School at Falling Waters. We love watching Levi and Eden learn and grow each day!
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.
