    Bill and Kristy Smith

    Franchise Owners

    We are Bill and Kristy Smith and The Primrose School of Fort Worth at Mira Vista is our second school. We have owned and operated The Primrose School of Columbus Trail, an accredited private preschool that provides a premier educational child care experience, for fourteen years. Even though we have owned a school for fourteen years and we bring many years of experience in the business world, it has been our children that have taught us the most important lessons. Back when we began, we had a choice when making a decision to purchase a preschool or daycare just as we know that you have a choice in child care. We chose Primrose in 2007 because Primrose Schools offers more than a daycare experience and we continue to invest in Primrose by building and operating Primrose School of Fort Worth at Mira Vista.

    Our goal is to ensure Fort Worth children are loved and cared for in an environment that fosters a lifelong love of learning. Primrose School of Fort Worth at Mira Vista provides an atmosphere where children can grow their Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®.

    Primrose School of Fort Worth at Mira Vista features the Primrose Balanced Learning® curriculum for children ages six weeks old to six years old, as well as after school and a Summer program for children up to age twelve. Developed by and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-based curriculum blends teacher-guided and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development.

    We are proud to be a part of both this organization and the lives of our families. We enjoy working with the great staff and continuing with the educational philosophy that Primrose offers. We both are active in the school visiting with children and parents and welcoming suggestions at any time. We are proud of our school because of our students, parents, management team and teaching staff.

    Primrose School of Fort Worth at Mira Vista will be located at 6410 Bryant Irvin Rd, Fort Worth, TX 76132.
