Brad & Brenda Shafer


We are the proud owners of Primrose Schools of North Meridian, Brenda and Brad Shafer.

After being frustrated with limited learning growth at a daycare in KY for our daughter, Bailey, Primrose was recommended to us. 

Even entering the parking lot, we could perceive a significant difference.  A personal and friendly greeting by the Director, the cleanliness, seeing happy children and teachers – everything was at a higher level and clearly, centered on the children. 

Bailey THRIVED at Primrose!  She was making leaps in her learning, she was excited to go every morning, her teachers were kind and the daily pictures/check-ins through Procare created peace of mind. 

Upon learning of a pending move to Boise, we sought a Primrose for Bailey and learned there wasn’t one.  Recalling Primrose was a franchise, we inquired, found it to be intriguing, learned more about providing a meaningful preschool experience and here we are!

Brad has worked in education his entire career and has two degrees in Education.  Brenda conducted the research when seeking care for both of our children and understands key differentiators.  Brad is the on-site owner and Brenda (a former Nurse) will continue her health law practice. 

We have two children, Bradley and Bailey and love family activities such and skiing, games, spending time with Grandparents and day-trips.  We love living in Boise and in Idaho! 

“Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® curriculum. 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!
