    Angela Martin and Helen Morris

    Franchise Owners

    Hello, I am Angela Martin. My mother, Helen Morris, and I are the proud owners of Primrose School of Southwest Oklahoma City. My husband and I were first introduced to Primrose during our own search for a safe and nurturing child care option for our first child. Primrose, with its proven curriculum and emphasis on character development, is the best preschool that we could have ever imagined for both of our children, and we are honored to bring it to the families in our community. It was while my children were enrolled in Primrose that I subsequently became actively involved in the school and discovered my own passion for early childhood education. I realized the importance of setting a solid foundation at an early age was something I wanted to promote in our own community. I firmly believe the educational gains that my children received at Primrose have set them up for success in school and in life. The Balanced Learning¬ curriculum, character development and high standards of child care offered at Primrose Schools are invaluable to us and we are excited to offer the families of Oklahoma City the same remarkable educational experience. We are committed to providing the highest quality education for your child and are happy to join the Primrose family. We look forward to meeting you!
