    Franchise Owner

    Welcome to the Primrose School of Westchase!

     

    My name is Matt McCallister and I am grateful and honored to be given the opportunity to be the new owner of Primrose School of Westchase!  

    Having previously owned and operated a successful Primrose school with my wife and having 3 children of my own, I know firsthand the passion and commitment of providing excellent early childhood education and care.  I want to maintain the highest standards and continue to provide the quality education and care that is expected from Primrose Schools.

    As a brief introduction, I am a Florida native that attended the University of Florida for my undergraduate studies (Go Gators!) and earned a Master Degree in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and playing tennis or pickleball.

    With deep roots in the Primrose community and being a proud franchise owner since early 2016, I recognize that high quality early childhood education and care with an emphasis on character development nurtures the foundation for one's future academic and personal successes. With the innovative research-based curriculum offered by Primrose, I am devoted to bringing the best educational experience to the Westchase community.
