Meet the Patels
Brothers, Parag and Samir, and their wives, Neha and Hemali, are the proud owners of the Primrose School of Mansfield. Between the two families there are three children ranging in ages from 3 to 12.
Parag and Samir grew up playing cricket together, but after spending time at Boston University and over 20 years in the Boston area, have come to realize that watching the New England Patriots in action is just as much fun.
They come from an entrepreneurial family and have always looked for a venture that would be enjoyable as well as fulfilling. Being raised in an environment where education was always of utmost importance, their families today share the same values.
The four of them are young, active, and passionate parents who are very excited to be the first to provide a premier learning education center to Mansfield, and neighboring towns. They want to provide children with quality education by means of a Balanced Learning™ curriculum offered solely at Primrose Schools from Infant to Kindergarten. The ability to shape young minds through nurturing and guidance, while instilling curiosity and creativity is a very important first step in a child’s development. Creating a love for learning instills in them a solid foundation which drives growth and confidence, giving them the aptitude to be thoughtful and productive members of society.
A little more about the Patels…
New parents in 2016, Parag & Neha were faced with the daunting task of finding a safe, nurturing, and compassionate place for their daughter. The Patels understood that the first years of their daughter’s development were the most crucial and the knowledge imparted in these formative years would be everlasting.
A program that upheld their family values and implemented character development stood out to them. The Primrose statement, “Who children become is as important as what they know” made them even more confident in the balanced learning approach they heard about. As they saw her smiling face excited to go to school every day, the thought struck that if they wanted to start something of their own there could be no better way than giving back to the community by opening up a premier education center.
Neha’s unique background in education and counseling along with her experience with financial institutions helps her work not only with children but also with adults in the community. Neha believes that an all-round education provides a child a platform for social, emotional and academic growth while still allowing to maintain and enhance their diverse and unique backgrounds within classroom every day. A student-centered curriculum that fosters integrity and a sense of community synthesizes her core educational outlook. Through the different roles she has held, she’s had the opportunity to build relationships with children, parents, teachers and other members of the community.
As parents of two very lively children, both Samir and Hemali have provided them with a sound education and opportunities that will help them succeed. When Primrose came along as a potential opportunity, they too felt that it was the perfect next step. Upon learning more, what resonated most was the similar core values and a firm belief in the importance of education while also being an active member of the community and giving back.
Among the four, we have a wide array of experience in areas of education, business, technology, and engineering. We hope to use aspects of both our academic background and work experience in providing a fun, engaging, and loving environment for your children to thrive in. Seeing the young smiling faces and playing an active role in enriching your children on a daily basis as well as becoming a part of their journey at the Primrose School of Mansfield is something that we look forward to.
The Patels are thrilled to be part of the community and cannot wait for you to join their Primrose family!
