Meet Mrugesh and Nilam Patel and Shashi and Pinal Kerai — the proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of St. Charles West. These two couples believe strongly in the Primrose Schools commitment to develop the whole child, and they are excited to bring the thoughtful Balanced Learning® approach and its impressive character-building focus to the Tri-Cities area of St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia.
Shashi and Pinal were first introduced to Primrose Schools in 2013 while searching for an early education and care provider for their son. The couple quickly realized how amazing the Balanced Learning approach was for their son’s development, and they often updated their families on his academic growth.
Mrugesh, Pinal’s brother, and his wife, Nilam, were expecting their first child in 2015 when Shashi and Pinal told them about Primrose. The couple knew they wanted the same high-quality early education for their own son. Mrugesh and Nilam decided to relocate so the families could open a Primrose school of their own in the St. Charles area.
Between the four of them, this powerhouse team has a variety of skills that support the success of the school and its students. Mrugesh, a certified flight instructor, and Shashi, a neurophysiologist who taught residents in several states, have both taken a step back from their travel-based careers to manage the school. Mrugesh also draws on his experience in management and banking to run the school’s day-to-day operations. Pinal and Nilam will play a unique advisory role in the school as they continue to serve the community as an audiologist and pediatrician, respectively.
Because their families have such a strong appreciation for science and math, the Patels and the Kerais value the depth of the Balanced Learning approach and how it emphasizes both academic and social-emotional learning to build a strong foundation for future success.
The Patels and Kerais are thankful their own children have had the opportunity to learn and grow at Primrose. Nilam and Mrugesh’s son, Sidhdhant, and Shashi and Pinal’s daughter, Bhakti, will be the first students enrolled at Primrose School of St. Charles West. Having graduated from a Primrose school, Pinal and Shashi’s son, Khush, attends the Primrose Explorer Program.
The Patels and the Kerais are overjoyed to provide unique early learning experiences to their community through Primrose School of St. Charles West. They’d love to welcome you to their Primrose family!

Children who feel valued and included are better equipped to show kindness and compassion to others, including those who are different from themselves.
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.
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.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
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.
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.
