    Mrs. Ambrose

    Executive Director

    Hello! I am thrilled to serve as the Executive Director of the Primrose School of Frisco at Independence. I have been with the Konrad group of Primrose Schools since 2015.

    Upon returning from college in 2002, I began working for a private preschool where I taught kindergarten and developed the after school and summer programs. This is where my passion for early childhood began.

    After developing my love of the classroom, I became an assistant director at a Montessori school and within a year moved into the position of site director. After two years of being a site director, I advanced into the Regional Director the five locations.

    After joining Primrose Schools in 2015, I have a new found appreciation for early child care. Primrose truly believes that who children become is as important as what they know.

    I enjoy working directly with teachers, children, and parents to help reach their goals. My passion is early childhood education, and my goal is to ensure our children are safe, loved, and are excited to come to school.

    I believe communication is important, and I look forward to the opportunity to make an impact in so many young children and families' lives. I may be reached at

  • Mike and Joyce Konrad, Franchise Owner

    Mike and Joyce Konrad

    Franchise Owner

    Please allow us an opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are Mike and Joyce Konrad, the proud owners of nine Primrose School Franchises in the Dallas Fort Worth Area. We started with our first Primrose school in 1997 in the city of Bedford. Once we became immersed in the school, we realized that the parents of today truly valued the excellent, accredited, curriculum based child care that we were providing.

    We realized the Primrose Franchise was fundamental in helping us provide this valuable service. As a result, we have had the opportunity to acquire an additional nine schools in the D/FW area for a total of 9 schools to serve your family in the metroplex. We are certain the Primrose concept can provide what parents need for complete peace of mind when they are looking for child care. The parents in our schools know that their children are safe, loved and happy, all the while learning with a balanced, developmentally appropriate curriculum. We know this, because countless parents have told us over the years how their children “surprise them” every day with what they learn at Primrose.

    In addition we have many Public School Kindergarten and First Grade Teachers comment that they recognize the Primrose Children in their schools. They say that they arrive above and beyond “school ready” in their respective classes.

    We are very proud of the Management and Teaching staff that we have at all of our schools. Because we have been able to achieve the Primrose “Exemplary” Status in all 9 of our schools, we are able to attract some of the best directors and teaching staff in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. The tenure of our management and teaching staff is exceptional because we are committed to the continuous training and development of our staff. Many of our teachers and mangers are promoted within our network of schools. As a result, we are fortunate to have a very professional, well-trained, Management and Teaching staff.

    It goes without saying that our primary focus is on the safety and nurturing of your child. The additional layer of curriculum and character development programs round out what we know will be a truly positive experience for both you and your child.

    We thank you for your time visiting Primrose School of Frisco at Independence. We want you to know that the trust a parent places in us when they leave a child in one of our schools is not taken lightly. We are committed to executing our programs and delivering to our parents and students what we promise.
