Hello, we are Leslie and Paul Graves, the proud owners of the Primrose School of Stone Brooke. We live in Frisco and are Plano natives! We both attended high school in Plano and college in Texas. We have two beautiful daughters, Madison and Abigail, who are both attending college.
As parents we understand the struggle of leaving your children in someone else’s care. We were fortunate enough to know that our children were able to attend a school, another Primrose location in the DFW area, where Leslie was the Executive Director for 5 years. There is no better feeling than this! From this experience it became so important to the both of us that all families should feel that same sense of security for their children when they go to work. We believe that our school is an extension of your child’s family and that we all must work together to create the best environment for them.
Leslie has her Bachelor of Science degree Early Childhood and Family Studies and has been working with children for over 25 years. She has been a director for private preschools in Austin and then began her career in 2006 with Primrose Schools. She began as a director and then moved to a Regional Director position in 2012.
Leslie has also taught a combination 1-5th grade all subject TEKS based grade classrooms for at-risk students. In addition to teaching, she has served children working for a private therapeutic foster agency to license foster homes and families. Leslie was a case worker for children in the agency and ensured their well-being and safety while evaluating their care, treatment and placement were in their best interest.
Mrs. Graves is also a Recognized Continued Professional Educational Provider for the State of Texas and a Certified Trainer for Early Childhood Educators through the Texas Education Association and has been training early childhood managers and teachers in this industry since 2001.
Paul is a chiropractor in Frisco and has been in practice and owned his own clinic since 1996 and has been involved with Leslie as a partner and is excited to be working with Leslie and the team at Stone Brooke to bring quality childcare to the area! You will also see him in the school helping with many things and is hands-on when operating his business.
"We are huge believers in high-quality care and high-quality customer service where we can maintain good relationships. We believe our partnerships with you will be forever valuable and what we pour into our children will leave a lasting impact."
We welcome you to the Primrose School of Stone Brooke, and if you have not yet joined us, we invite you to come in, visit, and see why so many families in McKinney choose our school for their children!

Paul and I have been working with Primrose since 2006. I (Leslie) have been directing schools since 1998, and we began our journey with Primrose when I was hired on as an Executive Director. I eventually opened new Primrose locations and then later became a Regional Director. My degree in Early Childhood and Family Studies led me to a life of working with children and families and is ultimately what led us to own a school. I am also a Recognized Texas Certified Trainer for Early Childhood Educators. My husband Paul, is a chiropractor in Frisco and has owned his own practice since 1998. He attended Parker University in Dallas. Paul will be involved more behind the scenes in our school, but you will get to know and to see him in many events! Paul and I both grew up in Plano and met in high school and call Texas home! We have two daughters in college.
