We believe you’ll find just that at Primrose School of Meadowbrook, where we are dedicated to the care, safety and education of your children.

    Since enrolling our first born in 2016, we’ve witnessed firsthand the Primrose experience and the self-confidence, curiosity, creativity, compassion and love of learning it has cultivated in our own children.

    Stacy is an Auburn University graduate who has been in the banking industry for over 14 years. Chris played with the Atlanta Braves organization for 7 years before pursuing his education at The University of Alabama where he played on Alabama’s 2009 national championship football team. Chris has been a successful entrepreneur owning companies in biotech, software and international trade.
