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
Hello! We are the Sanjanwala family, longtime residents of the Kansas City area and the proud Owners of the Primrose School at KU Medical Center. We opened our first school, Primrose School of Overland Park, in March of 2013. We then opened our second school, Primrose School of North Olathe, in April of 2016. I am Shalin and will be overseeing the school at KUMC with my wife, Sunita
I completed my bachelor’s degree in engineering from Washington University in St. Louis, and received my master’s degree from the University of Kansas and I’ve worked in executive leadership in the Healthcare IT industry. Sunita attended the University of Michigan and has spent the past few years operating our Primrose School.
Family values have been a top priority for us, while we enjoyed our careers in the corporate world, we also wanted to pursue an endeavor that would teach our children the importance of family and community, and Primrose Schools gave us that opportunity. Our Primrose journey began when we sent our sons to the Primrose School of Leawood, which was the only school of its kind in the Kansas City area. We were amazed at the impact that Balanced Learning™ had on their intellectual, social and emotional development. When we noticed a lack of high-quality childcare options in the area, we decided to bring Primrose Schools to other families in Overland Park, Olathe and now the Kansas City area.
Primrose School at KU Medical Center is committed to upholding the highest standards in early childhood education and helping to lay the foundation necessary to help children succeed academically and in life. We strive to provide the best education for our own children, and we look forward to providing the KUMC community and surrounding area families with a quality, educational childcare experience that will positively impact their children for years to come!
Infant, Toddler, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten
At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
We are conveniently located on W 36th Ave, right down the road from Frank Rushton Elementary and five minutes from Gordon Parks Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Kansas City, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
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.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
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.
