FRANCHISE OWNER

Stephanie Barfknecht

Welcome to Primrose Schools!

I am the proud owner of Primrose School of The Mid-Cities.

In 1998, the building at Primrose School of The Mid-Cities was being built. This was the year I had just graduated high school at Covenant Christian Academy and was entering the university life at Oklahoma Baptist University majoring in Early Childhood Administration. I often found myself driving by this new Primrose as I ran around town with my friends… too often at Chick-Fil-A or McD’s!I happened to notice a now hiring sign one summer and stopped in. That particular day began my career with Primrose and with Terry Taylor and Rusty McNab.

Over the years, life continued and my husband and I found ourselves looking for work and childcare. I called the school owner, Terry Taylor and the rest is history! In 2006, I partnered in with Terry and Rusty at Primrose Mid-Cities taking on the director role for many years all the while growing our own family. Everything I have learned about business and early education has come from these years at Primrose. Understanding the growth and development of children from birth is exciting and fascinating to me. The practices we had in 1998 still stand true today, with some variations of course. We have learned so much about what children understand, how they learn, and what uniqueness’s they each have at such an early age. I am grateful each day to be apart of our student’s lives and families.

Who children become is as important as what they know is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.

We are excited to meet you and your family!
