    Natosha and Ehab Eskander

    Franchise Owners

    I am excited to bring the Primrose School at Pinnacle to Grove City, Ohio! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a pharmacist who most recently served as an Assistant Director of a Hospital Pharmacy Department and faculty member of the OSU College of Pharmacy. Once I learned about Primrose Schools with their accredited curriculum and enrichment programs, I wanted to share it with others. My husband and I have three children (Jeslyn, Oliver, and Gabriel) who attended the preschool.

    With my parents both being retired school teachers, education has always been important in our family. Primrose's Balanced Learning¬ curriculum focuses on each child's education and character development in a safe and nurturing environment. With three children of my own, I wanted more than just day care or child care for them. The education and whole child development are why I wanted to open a school myself and offer another option for the Grove City community. Primrose has everything that our family has been looking for as parents and with our combined life and work experiences, the preschool will have much love and success. I am happy to offer the Primrose School at Pinnacle to the Grove City community!
