    Welcome to the Primrose Schools!

    We are Kate and Kyle McEuen, the proud owners of Primrose School of West Gilbert!

    As the parents of five beautiful children, family means everything to us and we strive to teach our children the value of education, the importance of being kind to everyone, and the value of giving back to your community. When hearing about Primrose Schools, we were so excited to learn how closely their values aligned with our own! With Primrose Schools outstanding approach to education balanced with character development programs, we knew this was a brand that we wanted to bring to our community!

    With a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Arizona State University and an MBA from the University of Arizona, Kyle has spent the last 15 years in the franchise industries helping organizations recognize opportunities for growth and improvement. And, with a love for learning, particularly around children and early education, Kate has dedicated the last two decades to raising their family, including running an in-home preschool. Most recently Kate has been a realtor working primarily with families in the Gilbert area. Outside of work, Kate and Kyle are deeply dedicated to their community, volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, managing local sports teams and giving back to their local church. As a family, the McEuen’s enjoy staying active, hiking across the beautiful Southwest any opportunity they get.

    Who children become is as important as what they know is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.

    We are excited to meet you and your family!
