Meet Dona and Roland Young, proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of West Chester and two Primrose on Premise schools located on corporate campuses of the Procter & Gamble (P&G) Company: Primrose School at P&G GO Child Development Center and Primrose School at P&G Winton Hill Child Development Center.
The Youngs – who have three grown children – have been married for nearly 40 years, and always dreamed of building a business together. They decided to join the Primrose Family because they love children, believe in the importance of meaningful educational experiences and want to help families balance the demands of their careers and family lives. The couple moved to Cincinnati in 2010 to open their first Primrose school and will open their second and third Primrose schools on two of P&G’s campuses in January 2017.
Before becoming a Franchise Owner, Dona served as chairman, president and CEO of a Fortune 1000 company that provides life, annuity and asset management products. During the course of her 30-year career, she has honed a passion for education, talent development, business and corporate governance. Dona serves on two corporate boards, is an elected trustee of Save the Children and Save the Children International, and also serves on the board of the Saint James School, a preparatory school in Maryland. An active business consultant, Dona provides high-level guidance and support for their Primrose schools.
A graduate of Cornell University, Roland practiced law for 30 years and was the managing partner of a Connecticut law firm prior to pursuing his lifelong dream of nurturing and growing a business of his own. He has also taught at the junior high, high school and graduate school levels. Roland is a passionate, spirited and hands-on Franchise Owner who manages the majority of the operations for their schools. As a litigator, Roland measured his success based on wins for his clients. These days, he measures his success by the hugs and high fives he receives from Primrose children and the developmental accomplishments he witnesses.
Dona and Roland love offering a loving, warm atmosphere where children can grow Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®. Longtime supporters of Primrose Schools, the Youngs are thrilled to provide the quality experience they know and love to children and families in the Cincinnati area.
Their three Primrose schools feature the Balanced Learning® curriculum in infant through Pre-Kindergarten classrooms and the Primrose Explorers before- and after-school program for students up to age 12. Developed and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, the research-informed curriculum blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.

The Schatzke family Hi, we’re the Schatzke family! Included in our family is Matt, Valerie, Alexa (16), Luke (13), and Sofia (7). Matt is a territory manager for Apex Medical Solutions. Valerie is a middle school teacher at Ohio Virtual Academy. Alexa will be a junior at Lakota East. Luke will be an 8th grader at Liberty Junior School and Sofia will be in 1st grade at Liberty Early Childhood School. Sofia joined our family in May of 2016 through foster care. Then in November of 2018 was officially adopted into our family and we are forever grateful. ❤ We keep busy with attending and participating in many different activities between all 3 kids. When we do have free time, we enjoy visiting family and friends as often as we can. We also enjoy heading back to Columbus, where we moved from in 2007, to cheer on the Buckeyes in the fall. In the summer we always look forward to attending Reds’ games and we spend most of our free weekends in the summer at Lake Cumberland where the kids, especially Sofia, love to go tubing. Sofia first started coming to Primrose in August of 2018 where she attended part time for preschool. She started in Mr. Haynes’/Mrs. Farmer’s classroom where she felt welcomed and comfortable in her new environment. She adjusted quickly and has enjoyed her time here at Primrose since. She now attends before school during the school year and full time in the summer. We are thankful for all who care for and work with Sofia each day. She is excited every day to get to her classroom as I’m sure you’ve seen when she runs down the hallway to get to her classroom! 😊
Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
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.
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
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.
