    Hello! My name is Amanda Light and I am thrilled to be the Education Director. I grew up in a small town called Elkhart, Kansas, and upon graduating from high school, I moved to El Dorado, Kansas to attend college. My husband Brandon and I were married in 2015 and had our daughter, Macey, in 2017, who also attends Primrose!

    I have worked in the early childhood field since 2006, and my Primrose career began in 2013, where I taught just about every age group, and was also the Curriculum Coach for a year. I absolutely love the values and curriculum that Primrose has to offer, and believe that it is the best education program there is, not just from a teacher's perspective, but also as a parent! Thank you so much for trusting me with your child's growth and education.
