    “Children do not care how much you know, until they know you care.” Teddy Roosevelt

    I cannot recall a time in my life when I did not care for children. As early as my teen years I was taking care of the neighborhood children and planning to be a school teacher. As it turned out I found myself a stay at home mom with three pre-school children. In an attempt to find sanity in my life I discovered a Kids Day Out childcare program where I could work part time and my children would receive the social interaction we all desperately needed. It did not take long for me to fall in love with my first classroom of four-year-old eager minds. I’d like to say I was a natural, but truthfully, I wish I knew then what I’ve learned over the past twenty years about Early Childhood Education. My early classrooms benefited from a teacher who deeply cared for them, and that heart paired with the quality balanced learning approach Primrose offers is the dream for any parent. I am truly honored to bring my passion, knowledge, and experience to the Primrose team. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of teaching in the classroom for almost every age group. I enjoyed four years working with Child Care Licensing to ensure the safety of children in childcare. I worked under a Head Start grant and supervised up to ten locations and six directors. I enjoyed working under the Texas Rising Star grant as a mentor to twelve facilities where I coached teachers and advised directors. In addition to completing a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Education with a specialty in Social Sciences at Wayland Baptist University, I am a Child Care Health Consultant, Texas Trainer, CLASS observer, and now the Director at Primrose School of Schertz. I bring my experience in the childcare field, twenty two years of parenting and the same care and passion I’ve always held for children. We know learning begins from day one of life which is why we will give your infant to school age child a rich learning environment for them to wonder, discover and explore their world alongside a caring teacher who will guide them to reach beyond their imagination.

    I hope to meet you soon,

    "Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn." - O. Fred Donaldson

    Children have always been an important part of my life. I was fortunate to be able to stay at home with my kids while attending College and enjoyed the excitement and adventure they brought me every day. When my youngest daughter started Pre-Kindergarten it was hard for me to come to terms with not having the energetic mind-set of a 4 year old with me all day. I found my inspiration when I started my career path as a School Age teacher and loved the growth and knowledge I gained from all aspects of early childhood. I have had the pleasure to work with most age groups, and have learned that every child thinks and learns differently. I advanced in my career as Assistant Director and had the pleasure to mentor a motivated and creative team. I am proud to join Primrose as the Assistant Director and look forward to this new chapter in my career.

  • Lawrence & Natalie O'Connor, Franchise Owner

    Lawrence & Natalie O'Connor

    Franchise Owners

    Meet Lawrence and Natalie O’Connor, proud owners of Primrose School of Schertz. Native Texans, they are thrilled to bring high-quality early education to the Schertz community.

    Lawrence and Natalie were first introduced to Primrose four years ago through their good friends, Tommy and Anna Thompson, owners of Primrose School of Round Rock at Forest Creek and Primrose School of Pflugerville at Falcon Pointe. At the time, Lawrence and Natalie were still dating, but their shared love of education and learning brought them closer together. The couple was married in October of 2014 and quickly began looking for an entrepreneurial opportunity that would allow them to share their passion for education with their community. When they discovered there was a need for high-quality early education close to their San Antonio neighborhood, they immediately turned to the Thompsons to help them bring Primrose to the growing Schertz community.

    “We wanted to give back to this great community we call home,” said Lawrence. “As we think about starting our own family, we really wanted to create a fun and nurturing environment where parents can feel good about leaving their children.”

    Lawrence and Natalie have both enjoyed successful careers in the corporate world. Before becoming full-time Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Schertz, Natalie was a director with Workforce Solutions Alamo, a state and federally funded organization that helps people find jobs and administers training and support services to job seekers so that they can obtain and maintain employment, and Lawrence was a commercial real estate broker and partner at HPI Real Estate Services and Investments, leading the company’s San Antonio office.

    With Natalie’s expertise in management, quality control and operations, and Lawrence’s sales, real estate and business development background, they believe they are an ideal match to achieve success within the Primrose Schools family. Lawrence and Natalie have always had a love of learning, one of the things that drew them to each other. Both graduated in the top 5 percent of their high school classes and both completed the prestigious Plan II Honors Degree at The University of Texas at Austin.

    “We both come from families of educators, and we know how important education is, especially for young children,” said Natalie. “That’s why we are so excited to offer a caring and nurturing atmosphere at our school that fosters curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion."

    In addition to their impressive education and career accomplishments, Lawrence and Natalie are also dedicated to community service. They are active volunteers at San Antonio Pets Alive, where Natalie serves on the board of directors. Natalie and Lawrence are also members of the Texas Biomedical Founder’s Council, an organization of community advocates and financial supporters of The Texas Biomedical Research Institute. And, Lawrence spent two and a half years serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bolivia. They are committed to teaching the importance of servant leadership in their school.

    Lawrence and Natalie welcomed their first child, a daughter, into their family in April 2020, and are expecting a second child in March 2022.
