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.

It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
Congratulations on the recent or soon-to-be addition to your family! This time in life is full of so many decisions – from which diaper brand is best to which pediatrician to call – and all of them can be nerve wracking. But for many parents, the decision that often causes the most angst is, “Who will take care of my child while I’m at work?”
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.
When determining the best child care option for your family, tuition cost inevitably plays an important role. But it’s only one of the factors parents must consider, which is why researching and selecting child care options can feel like such an overwhelming decision.
Lately, everyone seems to be talking about STEAM. It’s a hot topic in the world of education and in the business community, but what does STEAM have to do with your preschooler?
There’s no greater joy than making a positive difference in the life of a child. At Primrose, we’re honored to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the more than 50,000 children in our schools, and it’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly.
