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.

Often times the Holiday Season brings irregular schedules for your little ones. Here are some tips on getting back into a routine before school starts.
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!
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.
After a holiday season full of fun, returning to a regular schedule can be tough, especially for children. Try these simple tips to help your child readjust to the new year with ease!
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.
We hope everyone has a safe, healthy, and happy new year!
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
It may be cold outside, but it is warm here at school today! Our students are enjoying a day full of learning and fun with friends. As a reminder, we are closed Dec 23 - 26 for Holiday Break. We will see you all Tuesday, Dec 27th. Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
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 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.
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
