Meet Anita and Pramod Patel, proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of West Chandler. As longtime residents of Phoenix, this couple is thrilled to bring the unique Primrose Experience to the children and families in the greater Phoenix area.
Anita and Pramod have been married more than 30 years and been residents of Ahwatukee for nearly 25 years. The couple has three grown children of their own and always placed the highest value on education, both for themselves and their family.The Patels were first introduced to Primrose in 2014 when a family friend became a Franchise Owner. The couple’s daughters have both worked in early education, so the whole family was inspired by the opportunity to bring high-quality education and care to their community.
“My family has always been involved in business, and my two daughters have enjoyed working in education,” said Anita. “Opening a school seemed like the perfect way to combine our family’s history with our passion for education, and once we learned about the Balanced Learning® approach and its emphasis on character development, we knew we wanted to open a Primrose school.”
Originally from the United Kingdom, Anita and her parents have owned several businesses focused on customer service in both the U.K. and the U.S. Her parents’ legacy and dedication to customer service excellence inspired Anita to open her own Primrose school with her own family. Anita will manage the daily operations, putting her MBA to good use. Pramod will manage marketing and be the resident “IT guy,” while continuing his work as an engineer. Pramod and Anita’s middle daughter will also work at the school, putting her degree in Early Childhood Education and years of experience from teaching at a Montessori school to good use.
“We believe in the Primrose mission to forge a path to a brighter future for all children, and we want to start by making a positive impact on the lives and futures of the children and families in Arizona,” said Pramod. “Our community deserves the fun, safe environment that encourages curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion in children.”
