Our Staff

  • Ms. Taylor, District Manager

    Ms. Taylor

    District Manager

    Greetings! My name is Taylor and I am honored to serve as District Manager for such a wonderful company. 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, our son Hudson and our fur babies! We are foodies that love trying new restaurants and shops in the area.

    I have worked with Primrose since 2016 and could not say enough how happy I have been ever since!

  • Ms. Jackie, School Director

    Ms. Jackie

    School Director

    Hello! My name is Jackie. I was born and raised in NYC and have been in Texas for a year. My husband and I were ready for a change of scenery and pace. We also wanted a better environment for our 12 year old daughter. My family and I love it here! We love visiting different places around Austin, especially if they are dog friendly. We have a boxer pup who loves car rides.

    I’ve always loved working with children. I began working with children at a young age, as a counselor for an after school program. My passion grew from there, especially in early childhood. I went to Borough of Manhattan Community College and obtained my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education all while teaching toddlers full-time. The love and passion of shaping young minds continued to grow. I saw how much these young little ones learned and absorbed through play. I then moved on to be part of the leadership team and enjoyed the interactions and involvement I had with the children, parents and teachers. I continued in leadership for a few years while I attended CUNY City College. Once I completed my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education I went back to teaching, this time preschool and Pre-K. Shortly after I became the Lead for the Preschool Program, continued teaching and mentoring teachers. After a couple of years I went back to leadership and gained so much love for being able to be part of the growth of children and teachers!

    I am excited to be joining the Primrose family and the opportunity to build relationships with families, children and teachers.

    Ms. Denise

    Support Teacher

     

    Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Denise, I was born and raised in Texas. For as long as I can remember I’ve always had a special place in my heart for children. I think there’s just so much to learn from them such as; learning to be more imaginative, seeing the beauty in the not so beautiful things, and learning how to be kind. A little about my background with childcare experience: I grew up spending all of my summers from the 4th grade until my 1st semester of senior year nannying and taking care of children from the newborn stage all the way until their preteen age, and let’s just say it’s been a blast! I enjoyed learning how to cook meals for them, learning how to do hair, teaching myself how to be empathetic to children. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and friends; I also love to sing! I enjoy going on roadtrips and most of all I love making people smile! I took a break from nannying to expand my horizons but recently I felt I was being called back to it and I know that this beautiful privilege of a job will be the greatest experience for me. I’m so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful team that I know will allow me to grow in more ways than I could ever fathom. I’m so excited to see what my future here at Primrose holds!

    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 North. As parents, we value the importance of the high-quality, educational childcare that Primrose Schools provides. We are thrilled to bring Primrose to the Round Rock North community.

    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 new 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!
