Primrose School of Round Rock at Forest Creek

Our Staff

  • Ms. Taylor, District Manager

    Ms. Taylor

    District Manager

    Greetings! My name is Taylor. My passion for working with young children has always driven me to be a successful teacher. My initial motivation was working in healthcare as a pediatric physician which prompted me to begin taking emergency medicine classes. I conducted my hospital and ambulance rounds before taking a position as an assistant teacher in Houston, TX. I found so much fulfillment in that profession that I was inspired to start to take child development classes shortly after. I received my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Sciences with a focus on Child Development in 2014. During my time in school, I worked my way from a toddler lead teacher to an assistant director for another private preschool in Austin. I was drawn to Primrose because of the excellent reputation and true passion of each person I met during a visit to the school. In my free time, I enjoy exploring new parks with my husband, Daniel, and our son Hudson. We are foodies that love trying new restaurants and shops in the area. I am looking forward to the new opportunity and the new challenge. I cannot wait to help each one of you to grow in your career as I have grown.

  • Ms. Megan, School Director

    Ms. Megan

    School Director

    Hello! My name is Ms. Megan and I am the new Director here at Primrose Forest Creek! I have 15 years of experience working in the Early Childhood Education field at another center. I started my career as a Lead Toddler Teacher and grew in the management positions, where I eventually became Director and was the Director for 7 years. I have my Directors Credential, with future plans of hopefully finishing my degree. I am have been married for 13 years with five children! I have one stepson and three sons (ages 16,15, 11, and 4 years) and one daughter (2 years) which you can imagine is beyond spoiled with her four older brothers! My two youngest now attend Primrose as well. As you can imagine my life is kept very busy with my family. My husband coaches football for a local High School so we live and breathe sports, from weekly practices to weekends full of sports! You will always find me at the football field, ballpark or at the basketball courts! Outside of that- when I have some free time, I like to create on my Cricut machine making shirts and cutting out decals!  What lead me to Primrose was the passion and culture that it has built for the community and the families they serve. I look forward to creating meaningful relationships and continue to instill the same values you expect here at Primrose Forest Creek!

    Kevin and Reena Bhakta

    Franchise Owners

    Hello, we are Kevin and Reena Bhakta, the proud Franchise Owners of the new Primrose School of Round Rock at Forest Creek. As parents, we value the importance of the high-quality, educational childcare that Primrose Schools provides.

    We experienced the unmatched education Primrose delivers after searching for a child care option for our own child. The friendly teachers and warm, home-like atmosphere were an added bonus to the well-rounded curriculum and teacher guidance we were looking for in a school.

    We left our professions as a CPA and a Pharmacist to handle daily operations at the school full-time. Together, we will work to uphold the outstanding reputation Primrose has earned in the area.

    We are devoted to bringing the best possible child care experience to the community and providing children with a solid foundation to excel in the future. We understand the importance of instilling a love of learning throughout a child’s early years, and we believe this is essential to building a new generation of bright citizens.

    We look forward to meeting you!
