    Executive Director

    My name is Mrs. Engle. I’m originally from Mexico City. I graduated from the Universidad del Valle de Mexico with a bachelor’s degree in Administration in Gastronomic Business. I’m fluent in 2 languages; English and Spanish. I have been working in early childhood for over 8 years. I believe that we should never stop learning. I am currently continuing my education in Early Childhood at Penn Valley Community College. I’m married and have two adorable daughters that I love to spend my free time with. We love to discover fun places around Kansas City. I like to watch Netflix, travel, and go shopping.

    I think every child is capable of so many wonderful things. We just have to take the time to help every child learn to grow, learn to explore, learn to inquire and learn to believe in one another. I look forward to meeting all the Primrose families and helping their children grow.

    Hello! I’m Sondra Swift and I’m so excited to meet you all! I have been with Primrose Schools for 10 years and I really believe in our Balanced Learning approach and our commitment to providing loving, nurturing care and high-quality education for our students.

    I have a degree in Elementary Education from Kansas State University. I taught 5th grade and 3rd grade at Washington Elementary School in Junction City, KS, before moving to Texas with my husband. I joined the Primrose School of Lakehill in Frisco, Texas, as the Kindergarten teacher before joining the Leadership Team as Curriculum Director and then Assistant Director. In 2019, when my husband and I decided to move back home to Kansas to be closer to our families, I was fortunate to join the Primrose School of Ward Parkway as an Assistant Director.

    My husband and I are originally from Lindsborg, Kansas. We do not have children but enjoy spending time with our 13 nieces and nephews, 5 of whom live minutes away from us. In my spare time I like to read, crochet, do arts and crafts, snuggle with our 4 cats, and take our dog, Hera, on walks around our neighborhood.

    Hi! My name is Rachel Dutton, I’m so excited to meet you all! I am so grateful to be a part of the Primrose family! I believe there is nothing better than watching a child learn and grow. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Development. I have had the pleasure of working in childcare for about 7 years now, most recently I was a nanny to the most amazing family.

    I am originally from Lake of the Ozarks but have been living in North Carolina for the past 3 years where my husband was stationed. I’m an aunt to the most amazing and sweetest nieces and nephews. In my free time you can find me curled up on the couch with my pup and a good book, shopping, trying new restaurants or buying one too many plants.
