Welcome to Primrose Schools!
I'm Lisa Hegner, the proud owner of Primrose School of Shady Hollow.
Our Primrose journey began when I was pregnant with our first child as we started to explore high-quality childcare center options in the area. My husband, Keith, and I fell in love with Primrose the second we walked into the school and immediately wanted to enroll. While we were waitlisted, this just further proved to us that there was something special about this school. It was clear that Primrose creates a fun, educational and nurturing environment for each child and family.
Prior to opening our Primrose School, I worked in Human Resources for large corporate enterprises for 15 years. Over the years I have yearned to invest my time and energy into a local business of my own. I have seen the positive impact that Primrose has had on children served; socially, emotionally and intellectually that I decided that I wanted to open a Primrose school.
Austin is home, and I take great pride in bringing an exceptional academic program to our community. It is my mission for Primrose School of Shady Hallow to be a place full of laughter, learning and growth where families are able to have a peace of mind knowing that their little ones are cared for. I am excited to meet you and your family!
We aren’t just a daycare in Austin. We are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located just minutes down the road from Southland Oaks Park and Baranoff Elementary School on Brodie Lane.

At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
*YOUR PRIMROSE SCHOOL OF SHADY HOLLOW IS THE #1 DAY CARE IN AUSTIN.* We are #1! We won the “2021 Best of Best” contest in the Austin American Statesman, Day Care category. Thank you for your support. We're humbled. We're honored. We're grateful!
To better meet the individual needs of every child, we’re proud to implement Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®-3 and ASQ®:SE-2) in Primrose schools across the country.
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
We had such an amazing night supporting Carrying Hope who help foster children around Texas! ❤️
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
At Primrose Schools® Summer Adventure Club, learning meets fun through hands-on activities—like sports, robotics, and more—that encourage creativity, compassion and resourcefulness.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Teacher Appreciation week was such a blast! We love and appreciate each and every one of our AMAZING teachers!
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
April showers bring .... May Flowers!
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
