    Natosha and Ehab Eskander

    Franchise Owners

    Hello, we are Natosha and Ehab Eskander, the proud Franchise Owners of the new Primrose School of Reynoldsburg. Since opening our first preschool, the Primrose School at Pinnacle in December, 2009, we have seen the positive influence of the school's top-notch teachers and curriculum on our own children, our students and the community. So we are truly honored to extend the Primrose experience to more children and families in the Reynoldsburg area.

    As parents, we understand how difficult it can be to find a safe, nurturing and educational environment where you can leave your children while you're away at work. When we discovered Primrose, we instantly felt the welcoming environment that we know parents are looking for. We fell in love with the curriculum, the focus on character development and the partnerships formed with parents. The school made such an impact on us that we decided to open our very own. In fact, twoof our children graduated from our Private Kindergarten program at the Primrose School at Pinnacle.

    The importance of education has always been stressed throughout our lives and Primrose embodies all the values that we hold dear. We have seen how a quality early education foundation has positively impacted our children and we hope to share the benefits with your family.

    We look forward to meeting you!
