    Franchise Owners

    Hello! We are Poorab and Lakshmi Kapadia – proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Miramar. As longtime Florida residents, we are thrilled to bring high-quality early education and care to children and families in the Miramar community.

    We first discovered Primrose Schools while searching for child care for our daughter. We both worked full time and wanted to ensure she was in a safe, nurturing environment that fostered her learning. After touring Primrose, we were so impressed with the research-based Balanced Learning®curriculum and caring atmosphere that we became a Primrose family for life.

    Our daughter thrived at Primrose for four years, and when we had our son we enrolled him in the infant classroom. He was very happy at Primrose for four years until he started elementary school. After watching our children’s excellent, well-rounded development at Primrose, we made the decision to become Franchise Owners.

    We both grew up in families that value education very highly and are very passionate about early learning. We are dedicated to providing the kind of early learning experience we sought for our children – one that nurtures Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®.

    We are honored to have the opportunity to provide premier early education and care to our community and can’t wait to meet and welcome you to the Primrose family!
