As lifelong residents of the greater Houston community and seasoned school leaders, they are thrilled to open their third Primrose school and provide the Primrose Experience of premier early education and care to more local children and families. <br> <br> Prior to becoming Franchise Owners, the Muses each had successful careers – Larry worked for a large wireless communications company, and Brandi was a teacher in a local elementary school for more than eight years. But after their son was born in 2002, the Muses wanted to make a family-focused career change, so they decided go into business together. They wanted their careers to make a difference in the lives of children and families, and when they found Primrose Schools, Brandi and Larry knew they’d found what they were searching for.<br> <br> “After our first encounter with Primrose Schools, we immediately knew that opening a school was what we wanted and needed to do,” Brandi said. “Our family values align with the Primrose values, and as an educator, I knew the incredible <i>Balanced Learning® </i>program would give children the strong foundation they need to succeed both academically and in life.”<br> <br> In spring 2005, Brandi and Larry opened the doors of Primrose School at Summerwood. The school, which was recognized with the Primrose Presidential Award in 2012, soon became known not only for its excellent educational opportunities, but also for its warm culture and support of the local community. In spring 2016, they opened their second location, Primrose School at Lakeshore. Both schools are generous supporters of the local school district and are proud partners of several charities and sports teams. The Muses look forward to extending this caring culture and commitment to education at Primrose School of Garden Oaks. <br> <br> When they aren’t spending time in their schools, Brandi and Larry stay busy in leadership roles in their community, serving on leadership councils for Primrose Schools, volunteering for local charities and cheering on their children at sporting events. Their son, Corbin, is an avid basketball player, and their daughter, Jade, is a competitive cheerleader. Both Corbin and Jade are Primrose alumni.<br> <br> “We’ve seen first-hand the impact Primrose had in our own children’s lives and the lives of so many others, so if there’s one thing we know about Primrose, it’s that what we do here works,” Larry said. “We value the safety and nurturing of our students above all else, and when children graduate from Primrose, they are prepared for future success.”<br> <br></p><p>At each of their schools, the Muses are committed to providing students with a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow their <i>Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts® </i>while providing parents with peace of mind, knowing their children are well cared for and receiving a premiere education. </p><p><br></p>
