    Jamie Pryor

    Area Director

    Hello and welcome to Primrose School of Prestonwood. My name is Jamie Pryor and I am the Area Director for the Rigley Primrose Schools. I am originally from Tennessee where I graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I am the proud mom of three amazing, grown children. I have been in the Early Childhood field for 30 years as a teacher and director in preschools as well as teaching in the elementary school system. I thoroughly enjoy working with young children. I feel that early childhood education is one of the most important fields to be in because the children we encounter are like sponges: their minds are eager to learn and absorb all we have to offer, and Primrose has a phenomenal way of being able to educate their young minds while having a balance of nurturing guidance and purposeful play within our classrooms.

    I look forward to partnering with each one of you in your child's educational journey with us at Primrose.

    Executive Director

    Hi Prestonwood Families, 

    Hi, my name is Bela Desai, and I am thrilled to lead such amazing schools as the Executive Director for Primrose School of Prestonwood and Primrose School of Klyde Warren Park. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead such a strong and nurturing team! I am committed to continue to represent Primrose in Dr. Rigley’s distinguished brand.

    I am originally from Kansas City. I moved to the Lone Star state for my college education in Nursing. While in college, my journey in teaching began with Primrose Schools in 2009. Primrose helped me realize my true passion, Early Childhood Education! I was motivated to pursue my degree in the field of education. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Health Studies in Child Development and my Master’s in Education in Educational Leadership. I am certified in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. I have also received my Texas Training Registry to conduct faculty trainings in the state of Texas.

    In 2018 I made a career change. I joined a childcare corporate company for a year and half. I served as a Consultant and Mentor for over 50 Franchisee’s and Directors guiding best practices to provide high-quality early childhood education. It was during this time I came to the realization that my heart was with Primrose.

    I joined the Rigley Primrose team as the Director of Education in 2020 with over 12 years of Primrose experience in order to learn Dr. Rigley’s Primrose philosophies and policies.

    I am proud to share Dr. Rigley’s passion to provide the best in Early Education within a nurturing and positive learning environment and committed to guiding the best practices of Primrose in order to provide high-quality early childhood education for all those I guide and inspire.

    I cannot wait to get to know each one of you!

    Love,

    Bela Desai

    Twana Holloway

    Director of Education

    Hello my name is Twana Holloway. I was born right here in Dallas, Texas and I received my education in Child Growth and Development, Children with Special Needs, Child Development Associates, and my Directors Certification.

    I am an awesome wife and mother of 5 daughters. One single and 2 sets of twins. I have 2 grandchildren. I was blessed to have a career in childcare, because it allowed me to be able to have more time with my children.

    I have nearly 26 years of experience working with children as a teacher, a director and as an owner. I absolutely love working with children, because I get to watch them grow and see their personalities blossom. We get to mold their future for ourselves and that is an opportunity that I take to heart. We help prepare them so that they can better lead us.

    I love going to the movies and baking. The weekends are when I can spend time with my family and cook for them. I love baking with them and just talking about anything. I also love finding new places to go with my husband. Now that the children are all grown up, we can go see the world.

    I am so excited to be a part of the Rigley’s Primrose Schools. I am devoted to the well being and care of the children and its my passion to create a nurturing environment for children and a supportive, positive workplace for the adults in the industry. I look forward to getting to know the children and families of Primrose of Prestonwood.

    Franchise Owners

    Hi! My name is Dr. Noel J. Rigley PhD, and I along with my (late wife) Dr. Pratiksha Rigley and my daughters Maya Ann and Meira Ariane, come from three generations of early childhood educators. We are passionate about early childhood education and we are committed to serving the educational needs of every community we touch. As a family of educators, we are the proud owners of Primrose Schools of Frisco West, Klyde Warren Park, Park Cities, Preston Meadow, Prestonwood, Plano at Deefield, Temple, and Waco at Woodway. I am eager for you to learn more about our Balanced Learning Approach when you visit our school. Prior to our Primrose journey, becoming a parent was the start of understanding the importance of sharing milestones and precious moments with a select few. Knowing that having good quality childcare would be a home away from home, meant care that would help my children become individuals who could positively influence their immediate environment and future generations. We have always felt our values should be above standard, and during our childcare search, we were underwhelmed with our findings. My wife and I were excited to discover a Primrose for our girls where our standards were not only met but surpassed!

    Our Primrose journey began when our oldest daughter Maya was born, but it wasn’t until the birth of our second daughter, Meira, that I decided to couple my experience with my passion for early childhood education to open our first Primrose School in 2003! Since then, we have had the honor and privilege of becoming the proud owners of 7 schools. As an owner, I feel it is important that I am involved in every aspect of our schools, from the curriculum implementation to the menu. In providing a home away from home for our families, our highest priority is the health, safety and growth of our staff and students, as well as providing superior customer service to our families.

    Our schools are committed to making a difference in the communities we serve and are actively involved in supporting several local foundations and charities. As a family, we enjoy “traveling with a purpose.” Most recently, our travels took us through Myanmar and Zimbabwe, where we visited various schools. We particularly enjoy visiting schools across the world to deepen our understanding of education across cultures and to offer help to schools in need.

    As a long-term resident of Dallas, Texas, our family loves to spend time reading books across all genres, cooking family recipes, going on walks with our dog Roxy, and traveling. Maya, my older daughter, graduated from the University of Texas, where she double majored in government and history with minors in Business and English. She is a Fulbright scholar and is planning to attend law school next year. My youngest daughter, Meira, is also at the University of Texas as a sophomore, majoring in business.

    We hope you soon become a part of our family and that we can share in the joy of seeing your little one grow into a bright influencer of their generation!

    I look forward to personally meeting you soon.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Noel J. Rigley PhD
