When her own children were young, she was convinced that working with young children was her calling! She worked as an Assistant Teacher and as her knowledge grew, so did her love for teaching. She earned her CDA and moved into a Lead Teacher position. </p><p>In that role she developed a passion for working with the children’s families and the other teachers, which lead to a position as an Assistant Director. Her well rounded experiences of being a parent, Assistant Teacher, Lead Teacher, and Assistant Director are invaluable in her role as a Director. She has hundreds of training hours in early childhood education, a Director Credential, and is a member of the local Child Care Apprenticeship Advisory committee at MTI. As our Primrose School Director she works hard to support, lead, and inspire others as they care for and teach our young children.</p>FalseTrueMrs. Robin Forrester , School Director

I'm the Assistant Director for Primrose School at Lakewood Ranch. I have been with Primrose since the beginning, June 2005 and I taught for my first nine years in the Private Pre-Kindergarten program. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching and it was so rewarding to watch my students learn and grow. In 2014, I was promoted to a management position as the Assistant Director, working alongside Mrs. Forrester and Mr. and Mrs. Frank. We are a very cohesive team and we all love working together to make Primrose a great school!</p>FalseTrueMrs. Dianne Wudte , Director of Admissions

I am Mrs. Mavi Batts and I am the Education Coach at Primrose School at Lakewood Ranch Town Center. My love for working with children was cultivated at a young age by my mom, who's talent for teaching inspired many young minds, including my own. I was in awe of her enthusiasm and interactions with children, who's eyes would light up with her every word.</p><p>I enjoyed volunteering at my former middle school and began my teaching career at Primrose School as a Floater Teacher in October of 2012. Since starting at Primrose School, I have had the pleasure of working with and caring for the children and families in every program. </p><p>My love for children grew when I started a family of my own. I have three children and watching them grow is a beautiful and amazing experience and I am so blessed they too are a part of the Primrose family. Becoming a parent has given me a whole new perspective on early childhood development and has heightened my awareness of the trust parents put in us to provide the care they would for their children themselves while also providing their children with a safe and happy learning environment. </p><p>I take great pride in the work we all do here at Primrose and look forward to meeting you and your family!</p>FalseTrueMrs. Mavi Batts , Education Coach
