Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
Hi, we are Anita and Harrison Boyd, the proud parents of a sweet and fun loving boy, Connor, an animated and cheerful girl, Savannah and the newest addition, Henry. Our Primrose story began just before our oldest son was born when we started looking for child care in the Atlanta area. As working parents, we recognize the value of having your child cared for in a safe, nurturing environment that ultimately feels like an extension of your family. We looked at several preschools and were impressed with the warmth we felt at Primrose and its Balanced Learning® approach, which includes character development.
When the opportunity arose to open a Primrose school in Anita’s hometown of Indianapolis, we knew we wanted to give families the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are doing the best thing for their children and deliver the amazing Primrose experience we had as Primrose parents ourselves. We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring high-quality early education to the community in which Anita grew up.
Anita earned her undergraduate degree from Indiana University before moving to Atlanta to earn her doctorate in physical therapy from Emory University. As a physical therapist, Anita always enjoyed helping others reach their full potential, and is excited to put that passion toward helping children learn and grow at our school. Harrison attended Auburn University for his undergraduate degree in architecture and Georgia State University for his master’s in real estate. We met through a mutual friend in Atlanta and spent 11 wonderful years there, and are thrilled this opportunity brought us to Indy to raise our family!
We are passionately committed to providing the highest quality care and education for our own children as well as yours. We invite you to see first-hand what differentiates Primrose School of Geist from other child care centers, and look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our Primrose family!
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary Indianapolis daycare. Right down the street from the Geist Center and Amy Beverland Elementary School, we are conveniently located on Oaklandon Road.

We are the O’Malley family and have been at Primrose since February 2021, when we moved to McCordsville from the Chicago area. Mike has worked in Finance for the last 13 years, and Emily has a Public Health background working in health care for 13 years. We have two children at Primrose: Liam is in Pre-K and loves swimming, baseball and music. Finn is in Toddlers and loves reading books, playing with cars, and snacking. We have a long-haired dachshund named Oscar, who acts as the boy’s entertainment and security detail. In our free time you can find us listening to live music, camping, and spending time at the Indy Zoo. Mike and Emily used to travel quite a bit and hope to start taking the kids on trips in the future!
It’s November, which means it’s time for our national Caring and Giving Food Drive! Join Benjamin® on his can-collecting journey and see how your family can participate in this year's canned goods drive.
Primrose School of Geist participated in the voluntary IFA lead water sampling program, we tested all fixtures used for consumption or food prep and no fixtures presented lead levels that exceed the “action level” for remediation.
Here's why it's important to have your little ones help — and how to incorporate teachable moments while tidying up your home.
To better meet the individual needs of every child, we’re proud to implement Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®-3 and ASQ®:SE-2) in Primrose schools across the country.
We are thrilled to have Teresa Coffey join our Primrose Family as the Director! She is a tremendous asset to Primrose and the early childhood field. Not only does she bring many years of experience as a teacher and Leadership team member here, she also has a passion for cultivating an environment where children can really thrive.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
We are excited to announce the successful renewal of our level 4 rating from Paths to Quality at Primrose of Geist! Paths to Quality is an optional state quality rating system. During our renewal visit, our curriculum, teacher interactions, classroom environments, and teacher qualifications were evaluated, among other things.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
We are very proud to announce that our school, along with many other Primrose schools across the country, has earned its national accreditation under the Cognia Corporation Systems. We value your support and hope that you are as excited about being part of a Cognia accredited school as we are, demonstrating the highest level of quality in early childhood education. Thank you for your ongoing support of our Primrose School!
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
We are feeling the love from our community! Thank you so much Sadie Hunter with Current in Geist for reaching out and sharing our story!
