Meet Glenn Hadsall and Christi Brownlow – a husband and wife team and proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Fort Worth West. Glenn, Christi, and their three children, TJ, Mackenzie, and Gigi, are thrilled to bring the Primrose experience of premier early education and care to families in the Fort Worth community.
Glenn and Christi were first introduced to Primrose in 2010 while searching for a high-quality childcare provider for their youngest daughter, Gigi, whom they had recently adopted from India. After visiting several schools, Glenn and Christi fell in love with Primrose School of Firewheel, which was close to their home then, and felt the Balanced Learning® curriculum and caring, nurturing atmosphere were the right fit for her.
Seeing how quickly Gigi developed and flourished at Primrose, Glenn and Christi began considering opening their own Primrose school. They started the process by contacting Patriksha Rigley, who owned Primrose School of Firewheel.
“Patriksha’s passion for education and love for Primrose is infectious,” said Christi. “We knew this was a unique opportunity for us to make a difference in our community and provide a positive learning environment for all children.”
When Glenn and Christi learned there was a growing need for quality care in West Fort Worth, they jumped at the opportunity to move back to an area that is very special to Glenn’s side of the family. Glenn’s mom grew up in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth and met Glenn’s father while he was stationed at the Carswell Air Force Base. In 1954, Glenn’s parents married and moved into the apartments that once sat on the location of Glenn and Christi’s new Primrose school on Westridge Ave. Two-thirds of a century later, Glenn and Christi were excited to build their new school on the foundational elements their parents and grandparents built so long ago – literally.
“It means so much to us to build upon the character traits our parents shared with us, including the value of a quality education,” said Glenn. “We get to forge an even stronger path – one that not only will impact our family but also influence the community around us.”
Glenn and Christi have always shared a love of learning with each other and their children. Christi graduated from Oklahoma University with a degree in Business, and Glenn graduated with a degree in Design Communication from Texas Tech, where their son, TJ, graduated with a degree in Finance. Their daughter, Mackenzie, is also a Red Raider and will soon graduate with a Master's in Accounting.
Glenn and Christi’s 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 West will provide an atmosphere where children can grow their Active Minds, Healthy Bodies, and Happy Hearts®.
