    My name is Lori Monday, and I am so excited to be part of the Primrose family. I am the Regional School Director for Primrose School of Avon, Primrose School of Westlake, and Primrose School of North Ridgeville.

    I have over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, with pleasure of serving as the School Director at Primrose School of Avon since the opening in March 2015.

    Prior to that I have been in the early childhood industry since 1993 and have had the pleasure of serving in several roles, which included teaching Pre- Kindergarten, teaching Kindergarten, Supervisor of the Toddler Building, Assistant School Director, School Director. I also have had the privilege of working in the early childhood department of an inter-generational center in Erie, PA. In 2003, I took up the position of a Center Director at a NAEYC Accredited and Step Up to Quality Star 3 rated center. I loved being part of the community and was proud of all the young lives me and my team were impacting.

    I am thrilled to be a part of the Primrose Schools family and this exciting journey. All aspects of Primrose school are child focused and take into account the best that early childhood education has to offer. The Primrose philosophy of balanced learning takes into account many trusted theories of education. With these tools we are able to provide the best early childhood education that is offered in the industry.

    In my current role, I oversee and act as a liaison between the three schools, working closely with families, staff, respective school directors and the owners Jai & Divya Singh. I look forward to supporting each of you to continue bringing Primrose School’s mission and the quality of service.
