  • Mike and Joyce Konrad, Franchise Owner

    Mike and Joyce Konrad

    Franchise Owner

    Please allow us an opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are Mike and Joyce Konrad, the proud owners of eight Primrose School Franchises in the Dallas Fort Worth Area. We started with our first Primrose school in 1997 in the city of Bedford. Once we became immersed in the school, we realized that the parents of today truly valued the excellent, accredited, curriculum based child care that we were providing.

    We are certain the Primrose concept can provide what parents need for complete peace of mind when they are looking for child care. The parents in our schools know that their children are safe, loved and happy, all the while learning with a balanced, developmentally appropriate curriculum. We know this, because countless parents have told us over the years how their children “surprise them” every day with what they learn at Primrose.

    In addition we have many Public School Kindergarten and First Grade Teachers comment that they recognize the Primrose Children in their schools. They say that they arrive above and beyond “school ready” in their respective classes.

    We are very proud of the Management and Teaching staff that we have at all of our schools. Because we have been able to achieve the Primrose “Exemplary” Status in our schools, we are able to attract some of the best directors and teaching staff in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. The tenure of our management and teaching staff is exceptional because we are committed to the continuous training and development of our staff. Many of our teachers and mangers are promoted within our network of schools. As a result, we are fortunate to have a very professional, well-trained, Management and Teaching staff.

    It goes without saying that our primary focus is on the safety and nurturing of your child. The additional layer of curriculum and character development programs round out what we know will be a truly positive experience for both you and your child.

    We thank you for your time visiting Primrose School of Stone Brooke. We want you to know that the trust a parent places in us when they leave a child in one of our schools is not taken lightly. We are committed to executing our programs and delivering to our parents and students what we promise.
