Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
I am Jamie Ovlia, proud Franchise Owner of Primrose School of St. Charles at Heritage. I am excited to be a very hands on owner of a school in my hometown and love to provide families in St. Charles and St. Peters with the high-quality education and care that Primrose Schools offers.
From our own experience as parents, my husband, Vince, and I know how hard it can be to find premier child care, daycare, and preschool services in our community. In 2016, we found Primrose and instantly knew it was what we were looking for. From the Balanced Menu to the Balanced Learning® approach, our family fell in love with the Primrose Experience®. We were willing to extend our commutes so our daughter could attend Primrose, and now we are thrilled to provide that same child care experience to children in our community.
Vince and I were both raised in the area. After leaving to further our educations, we decided to move back to St. Charles in 2012 to begin our family. My background is in medicine with a bachelor’s in health science from Truman State University and a master’s of medical science in physician’s assistant studies from Midwestern University. I have always had a passion for helping people, and coming from a career focused on health and safety, I am a natural fit to enriching the lives of children and their families through Primrose.
Our family's goal is to offer the children of our community— including our three children, Penelope, Leo and Benson— well-rounded, high-quality child care, allowing them to grow academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
We are proud to deliver the Primrose Experience, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our Primrose family!
Our Balanced Learning approach to child care makes us different than an ordinary St. Peters daycare. Right down the road from Schaefer Park and Becky-David Elementary School, we are conveniently located on Heritage Crossing.

We will be hosting a Meet the Teacher event for each of our classrooms ages 2 and older from 5:00-6:00pm the week of August 15th. Click to find our more information!
Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
We celebrated Independence Day with our annual Red, White, and Blue Parade around our school. The classrooms decorated hats, banners, and signs for our parade. The weather was hot, so we enjoyed some delicious snow cones while dancing to some music! Follow our Facebook page to check out more photos and all the fun!
Each month we feature a classroom book that helps children feel a sense of belongingness. This month we sat down with Markette Sheppard to discuss her book “What Is Light?” and the message she wants to send to children.
Our June Family of the Month!
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.
Congratulations to the wonderful Ms. Crandall for being our June Apple of Our Eye!
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.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
Our May Family of the Month!
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
Thank YOU for voting Primrose School of St. Charles at Heritage the BEST Child Care Center in St. Charles!
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.
