Welcome to Primrose Schools.
We are the proud owners, Cory and Brie Meschke, of Primrose of Ward Parkway!
I graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelors of science in education, and later received my Masters degree in Education from Baker University. I spent 20 years as an educator in a local high school and was the head boys and girls track and field coach for 10 years. My husband Cory and I met in high school and both attended the University of Kansas. He achieved Phi Beta Kappa with a bachelors of arts degree in Biology, and has owned a successful small business in the health care industry for over 10 years. Our greatest enjoyment outside of Primrose is the precious time we spend with our own family. Attending one of our children's many sporting events or activities is always a true pleasure for us. And as every proud Kansas Citian, we love cheering on our local sports teams!
We found ourselves looking for a career change where we could work together as a team, and also make a lasting difference in peoples’ lives. We wanted to dedicate our lives and future to a family business, and we could not be prouder of the decision we made to become part of the Primrose family of schools.
10 years ago, in an attempt to find a place for our son while I was working as a teacher, we struggled to find quality early care for our son Charlie. One of the best decisions we have made as parents was to enroll our son in a local Primrose school. Two girls later (Ruby and Sylvie), and we still feel our Primrose education experience has helped shape all of their lives forever. We already have two proud Primrose graduates and Sylvie will graduate from Primrose later this year.
It became clear that Primrose had not only prepared our children intellectually in their learning, but equally as important, we came to realize that our children were coming home from school and demonstrating continual evolution of personal character growth. We noticed a kindness and caring for their fellow students, a true willingness to help others, and an appreciation for teamwork and, of course, scholastic education.
We truly believe that what we do matters. Our philosophy is based on the Primrose simple, yet powerful phrase. “We believe who children become is as important as what they know”. We are so excited to be opening our own Primrose School to be giving others this opportunity.
We welcome you to the Primrose of Ward Parkway.

It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
Now more than ever, it is important that we nurture young children to be accepting of those who are different than them.
It might seem odd to think about your preschooler exploring data analysis and algebra.
