  • Greg and Heather Legeza, Franchise Owner

    Greg and Heather Legeza

    Franchise Owners

    Thank you for your interest in Primrose School of Fletcher Heights. Owners Greg and Heather Legeza both attended the University of Cincinnati and moved to Arizona in 1997. Soon after they moved to the Peoria community, their son Derek joined the family and their daughter Kylie followed closely behind. Because of the lack of quality educational childcare in the area, Heather decided to quit her job as an elementary school teacher to stay at home with their children. Having a background in early childhood education, Heather knew what she was looking for a child care facility. After spending several days touring facilities, Heather found that the only thing that was available was basically, babysitting. Heather was looking for more, and it just was not available. After visiting a Primrose School in Cincinnati, Ohio, they knew Primrose was exactly what the Peoria community was in need of and decided to purchase a Primrose franchise. They were looking for more balance in their lives and a better quality educational opportunity for their children. Like so many parents in our community, they understand that a child's early years are crucial elements to a well rounded early childhood education. The Legeza's agreed that a private, preschool setting would benefit their family and the Peoria community. Primrose Schools recognize the importance of balance to parents: the need to juggle successfully work and family life and to find educational childcare that provides peace of mind. Primrose's exclusive Balanced Learning curriculum accomplishes this with purposeful play and nurturing guidance. We are so lucky to have been doing this since 2004. Thank you for your interest in Primrose School of Fletcher Heights. We are so excited to offer a quality educational private preschool to the Peoria community. We look forward to partnering in your child's education. Sincerely, Greg & Heather Legeza
