Saira Sidi and Sulaiman Hemani, are proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of St. Louis Park West, who are thrilled to bring the unique Primrose Experience to the children and families in the greater Minneapolis area.
Saira and Sulaiman -who have been married for nearly 20 years and have lived in Maplewood, Minn., for 18 years—were first introduced to the idea of opening their own Primrose school in late 2014 when a close friend became a Franchise Owner. The couple was immediately inspired by the life-changing opportunity, which was not only a career change and an exciting business venture but also a chance to make a difference in their community by shaping the lives of tomorrow’s leaders.
The couple met in Montreal, Canada, while both were attending Concordia University (and Saira was also pursuing an associate’s degree in nursing from Dawson College). Saira, who has been a nurse for more than two decades and has always been passionate about education and health, will use her skills and expertise to handle the day-to-day operations of the school. Sulaiman, a tech industry veteran and computer systems architect, will provide “behind-the-scenes” support and financial guidance. Both have been active volunteers in their community and believe in giving and serving without expectation, so they are also excited to continue their commitment to giving back through the Primrose PromiseTM corporate social responsibility program.
They have witnessed firsthand the incredible difference Primrose Schools has made in the lives of young children whom they are very close to. As Franchise Owners, their goal is to provide a loving, warm atmosphere where children can grow Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®. “Every single day, my personal goal is to make a difference in at least one person’s life. That is what I stand for and is what I would like to share,” explains Saira.
Sulaiman agrees, adding, “The Primrose culture and values align with our own personal values. I want to ask parents, ‘when your child grows up, what kind of person do you want him to be?’ If they want him to be a passionate, good person with strong morals, then this is the perfect place for him. We will provide a value system for children in their early years that will guide them for the rest of their lives.”
Slated to open winter 2017, Primrose School of St. Louis Park West will feature the Balanced Learning® curriculum in infant through Kindergarten classrooms and the Primrose Explorers before- and after-school program for students up to age 12. Developed and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-informed curriculum blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.

Our School Location
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.
