Hello! My name is Michelle Diehl and I am the Director at the new Primrose of Overland Park. I came to Primrose with over 13 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Ottawa University with a minor in Early Childhood Education. I am the oldest of 4 children and am a proud Aunt of two nephews and two nieces! They are the true loves of my life, along with my spoiled Cocker Spaniel, Herbie. Recently, I began looking for a position with a company whose mission was to create an environment in which children could flourish. Upon finding Primrose, I was very impressed with the facilities and the Balanced Learning Approach that their curriculum encompasses. I am passionate about teaching children and believe that Primrose’s curriculum and high standards provide unlimited possibilities for your children. The curriculum is fun and exciting for the children while at the same time maintaining developmentally appropriate activities for each age group. I look forward to ensuring that the Primrose School of Overland Park creates an environment where children flourish, both educationally and socially, and where health and safety remain our number one priority. Should you have any questions, concerns or just want to stop by to chat, my door is always open!
Hi! My name is Lisa Black and I am originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have always been interested in teaching and education since I was a young child. From a young age, I would play school with my three younger brothers! When I graduated from high school and university in Canada, I decided to go to university in Maine to earn my degree in Education. From there, I moved to South Korea and taught English for nine years. While in Korea, I met my husband, Jim, and that is what brought me to Kansas. We now live in Lenexa with our cats Tiger Lily and Stanley. I am so happy to be here and begin a career with the Primrose School of Overland Park!
Hello, we are Sunita Sanjanwala and Ami Sanjanwala, sisters-in-law and the proud owners of the new Primrose School of Overland Park. Family values have always been a top priority for us, so while we've both enjoyed successful careers in the corporate world, we have always wanted to pursue a business endeavor that would provide us with the flexibility to spend adequate, quality time with our children and the opportunity to give back to our community. Our family first learned of Primrose Schools when Ami sent her oldest son to the Primrose School of Leawood, the only school of its kind in the Kansas City market. She was amazed at the impact that the Balanced Learning¬ curriculum had on her son's intellectual, social and emotional development and that he was reading at just 4-years-old. We love our community because of the quality of our schools and the fact that quality education is always a top priority among area leaders, families and educators. We're committed to upholding the highest standards in early childhood education and helping to lay the foundation necessary to help children succeed in school and in life. We strive to provide the very best education for our own children, and we look forward to providing area families with a quality, educational child care experience that will positively impact their children for years to come!
