Roland and Dona Young


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 over 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 several corporate boards 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 dream of nurturing and growing a business of his own in the educational field. 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.
