Mrs. Mithra Amaran


Mithra is passionate about nurturing your child’s education—a trait she learned from her father back in India. “My father was a leading pediatrician in my home state in South India,” says Mithra. “He saved a school that was poised to close and created a foundation to re-open it which helped give many of the city’s underprivileged youth a place to learn. Thousands of children have since graduated, gone on to college and broken their family’s cycle of poverty.”

Mithra—who has called Kansas City home for nearly 37 years—says opening her school is a “full-circle moment. I want to give back to my community. As a young parent myself once, I know the challenges parents face when they look for a safe and nurturing environment where their children can thrive,” she says.

With a double master’s in English Literature and Business Administration from KU, Mithra co-owned an IT consulting business for more than 18 years. Now, she’s excited to serve parents and their children in the beautiful suburbs of Kansas City, MO and Lee's Summit. “As an accredited leader in early education and care, we want to partner with parents to help children build the right foundation for future learning and life,” says Mithra. “Our goal? To help children have fun while building active minds, healthy bodies and happy hearts. I believe that 0-5 years are the most formative years of a child’s life. We want to nurture them and help them fully prepared for their future education—and for life itself.”

For Mithra, she’s determined to ensure your child is inspired to learn at Primrose. “It’s our Balanced Learning Approach® — which means we balance purposeful play along with nurturing guidance to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion so that your children can achieve their true potential. As our tagline says, ‘Who children become is as important as what they know.’ I’m taking that to heart. My father would be proud.”
