  • Gil Benjamin, Franchise Owner

    Gil Benjamin

    Franchise Owner

    My name is Gil Benjamin and I am the proud Franchise Owner of the Primrose School of Five Forks. As a working parent, I understand the importance of building a strong foundation early in life and finding a safe and nurturing environment where children can learn and grow. I chose Primrose for its accredited Balanced Learning curriculum, caring and experienced staff, and overall dedication to quality, educational child care. The decision to take over the Primrose School of Five Forks was a natural one as I've always had a passion for education after the seeing the impact my parents, lifelong educators, had on all of their students. My parents put an emphasis on the importance of learning and preached about the opportunities that come about with a quality education. I am thrilled to be able to pursue my longtime dream of working with children to provide a high quality educational experience in a supportive and safe environment. Thank you for entrusting us to provide your children with the best educational child care experience available. It is truly an honor and a privilege. I look forward to meeting you!
