Kevin and Mandi McCombs welcome you to Primrose School of Westlake at Entrada. As Primrose parents themselves, the McCombs are committed to bringing the Primrose Experience they know and love to children and families in Westlake, Trophy Club, Roanoke and surrounding areas.
With three children attending Primrose since 2005, Mandi and Kevin personally understand the value of Primrose’s nurturing and safe environment, the research-informed approach to learning and building meaningful relationships with teachers and families. As their connection to Primrose deepened, the McCombs recognized their desire to help steward children and make a positive impact in the community. Guided by their faith, it was abundantly clear that owning and operating a Primrose school was the perfect next step.
“We both have huge hearts for pouring into people, especially children, and want to help guide and develop them to reach their fullest potential,” said Mandi. “As Primrose Franchise Owners, we’re able to apply that focus to every facet of our school. We believe who children become is as important as what they know, and we’re focused on building and maintaining a culture guided by the highest standards, open communication, valued relationships and a strong sense of community.”
The McCombs are dedicated to investing in the children, families and teachers alongside their School Leadership Team. Mandi will oversee the day-to-day operations of the school and looks forward to sharing her career experience in operations, executive leadership and strategic corporate planning. Kevin will be in charge of the school’s financial and business operations, bringing with him nearly two decades of experience in the financial services industry primarily serving Fortune 1000 companies where his roles focused on relationship management, sales and marketing.
The couple currently resides in Southlake with their three children, Jules, Berklee and Kye. Jules, Berklee and Kye are excited to be a part of the Explorers Program, a before and after-school care and summer camp for children ages 5 through 12. The school is proud to offer the exclusive, Balanced Learning® approach, which balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.
“We vividly remember and can empathize with what it is like to drop off your child at school for the first time and every time thereafter,” said Kevin. “It’s a huge step, entrusting someone else with your child and feeling confident they’ll be safe and that his or her day is filled with joy. In our life, the phrase ‘Love & Family’ guides our every action and we are excited to extend this same principle to our Primrose families.”
