  • Rashi and Harman Jasdhaul, Franchise Owner

    Rashi and Harman Jasdhaul

    Franchise Owners

    Hello! We are Rashi and Harman Jasdhaul, the very proud new owners of the Primrose School of Old Bridge. We have two young boys, ages one and five, who we absolutely adore! Early childhood education has always been a passion of ours and we are so excited to be part of the Primrose Family!

    We, as parents, understand the need for children to receive love and compassion at school. We also understand how difficult it can be to find both a safe and educational environment to provide the exceptional level of care that we expect for our precious children. We believe that our passion for early child education combined with our strong ethical values and positive attitude make us a great fit for the Primrose family.  Their unique Balanced Learning approach particularly interests us as we strongly believe in purposeful play with nurturing guidance.

    I have a background working in Healthcare Ethics and Compliance for over 14 years. While working in healthcare compliance, I have developed a passion for caring for others and providing them with the best care possible. Harman has worked in the Financial Services industry for over 12 years as a Project Manager and Director. Owning a Primrose school will allow us to work together as a team and make a lasting difference in children’s lives and we could not be more proud of the decision we made to become part of the Primrose family of schools.

    We realize that it takes a village to raise a child. More importantly, it takes a village to educate a child. Parents are not the only role models in a child's life. Children need to feel connected through a community where they can learn from multiple role models, develop social skills and get exposure to diversity. We strive to spark the 4 C's in all our children (curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion) while making learning fun! 

    Harman and I look forward to collaborating with all our families, teachers, and the community to provide high-quality education and a nurturing environment to all the children who walk through our doors.

    We can’t wait to meet you and your family!
