Thank you for your interest in the Primrose School of Urbandale! The Parekh’s are the proud owners and operators in the Primrose School of Urbandale opened this November of 2020. Impressed by the premium quality of education Primrose School provides and their passion for community encouraged them to open a Primrose School in Polk County.
Deepa with over ten years of experience in early childhood education identified the crucial need for premium early education. Umesh is a proven business owner, previously operating retail stores nationwide. With the identified need and their passion for giving back to the community, the Parekh’s began to search for an opportunity that would allow them to give back to the next generation of bright citizens. After visiting their daughter at Drake University, they fell in love with the life and culture of the Midwest, specifically the community of the Des Moines area. Once their business partner had mentioned the quality of education Primrose provides, the Parekh’s were thrilled with the opportunity to bring a Primrose School to Des Moines Metropolitan Area.
The Parekh’s as parents themselves understand the decisions regarding a child’s early education is emotional and crucial to a child’s development. Deepa and Umesh take great pride in bringing an exceptional academic program to the community and will be involved in daily operations. The primary goal of the Parekh’s is to create a safe and encouraging environment for family’s to feel proud of their children’s experience at Primrose of Urbandale.
We are conveniently located on Hickman Road, right down the street from I-80 and minutes away from Webster Elementary School. Unlike an ordinary daycare in Urbandale, we provide your child with a robust early education and child care experience.
Infant, Toddler, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten
At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
For our 2nd Annual Spring Fling we looked to raise donations for the Primrose Children's Foundation and The Chrysalis Foundation. Through profits collected via tickets, raffles, and auction baskets we raised over $8,000!
Fostering a sense of belongingness has been a part of every day at Primrose for the past 40 years, and we’re excited to invite all families, from Primrose and beyond, to join in as we celebrate the annual National Day of Belongingness on September 29.
Try these easy at-home activities to promote character and social growth that will help children celebrate their similarities and differences, and help create connections with others.
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.
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.
