  • Delise Evans, Director

    Delise Evans

    Director

    Delise Evans has been the Director of Primrose School of Littleton since 2012. She briefly stepped away from the position in 2016 but returned when Farima and Reza Nemat acquired ownership of the school. As the new owners, the Nemats offered a tremendous amount of support to the leadership team, teachers and families. It was their passion and the fact that she truly missed the wonderful families and staff that she rejoined the Primrose family as their Executive Director. She has been in the Early Childhood Education field for 18 years. She also has qualifications as an American Heart Association Instructor and as a Certified Qualistar Continuing Education Instructor.

    She is excited and honored to be a part of a successful school that believes in the success of every young child. While working closely with the teachers and families, she has witnessed how beneficial the Balanced Learning Curriculum is to each student. While maintaining developmentally appropriate activities for each age group, the curriculum is fun and exciting. She looks forward to ensuring an environment where children flourish and where health and safety remain Priority Number One.

    As a Colorado native, she and her my family enjoy exploring the Rocky Mountains by mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking and four-wheeling.

    Should you have any questions or concerns, her door is always open.

  • Farima, Reza and KiKi Nemat, Franchise Owner

    Farima, Reza and KiKi Nemat

    Franchise Owners

    Hello! We are Farima and Reza Nemat, the franchise owners of Primrose School of Littleton. As parents of two children (ages 10 and 7,) we understand first-hand the importance of ensuring that children get the best start in life.

    We were professionals living in the Washington DC area when we became parents. As a mother, I had a clear vision of what I expected since my undergraduate degree in psychology focused on the impact of early education on children.

    We quickly realized the enormous challenge of finding proper childcare where we lived. This experience and passion for early childhood education led us to Primrose.

    When we sat down with the Primrose Schools education team, we were impressed with their research and expertise. Their exceptional Balanced Learning curriculum that focuses on character development convinced us that Primrose is where we belong.

    Five years ago, we made the decision to move to Colorado and imerse ourselves in our new community. Kiyana Farzaneh (Farima’s sister) decided to leave her nursing position and join us at Primrose School of Littleton. We are fortunate to have her medical expertise to help our families navigate these challenging times.

    We feel there is no greater privilege and honor than being entrusted with the care of your children. We pledge to provide every child in our school with a safe, loving, and fun environment in which they will flourish and learn the skills that will help prepare them for success in their lives ahead.
