    Prachi Ghadi

    Franchise Owner

    Welcome! I’m Prachi Ghadi, proud Franchise Owner, along with my family, of Primrose School of Lake Wylie. Our Primrose story began while I searched for a business opportunity that would allow me to flourish, yet provide back to our community. Primrose became the destination, when searching for an early education and care experience for my son that would help him grow into a well-rounded child and student.

    When we discovered Primrose Schools® we knew the search was over, not only for a school for our son, but also to build on my family’s dream to own a business within our own community. I am excited to draw on my professional and educational background in operations management, finance and relationship management. In addition, my mother brings her experience as being a business owner for over 30 years in the northeast. We are thrilled with the opportunity to fuse yet balance the skills learned of past while feeding the passion to serve our community. We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to our Primrose family!
