FRANCHISE OWNERS

My dear friends thank you for your interest in Primrose School of Wichita East. My name is Anjana and my wonderful husband is Rajesh. We are thrilled to provide the very first premier educational child care option to Wichita and the Andover area families, featuring an all-inclusive program for infants through pre-K students, and an after school program for children up to age 12 as well. We are blessed to have twins! The desire to find the best care for our own children quickly developed into a passion to provide an educational and nurturing environment for all children in our community. During our search for child care we came across Primrose Schools and decided to visit a few of these schools. We were pleasantly overwhelmed by the safe and clean environment and the unique deliverance of the curriculum. I was so overjoyed that the experience literally brought tears to my eyes, and we knew we had to bring Primrose to Wichita. I truly believe that receiving a quality education by the influence of positive role models in the first five years, will set the foundation for your child's future. I am committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children in our community. We look forward to meeting you!

  • testimonial for Primrose School of Wichita East

    Why did you chose Primrose Schools for your children?

    Why We Chose Primrose: Hello! We are the Stucky family. My name is Corey Stucky and my wife’s name is Catherine. Our children are Jillian, who is now 6 years old and Jensen, who is 3 years old. We are proud to say that both our children are Primrose kids! There are several reasons why we chose to send our children to Primrose School. Having travelled extensively in my previous employment, I was aware of the Primrose brand through friends and family who had experienced Primrose positively in other cities. My wife also knew of Primrose through her friends’ experiences as well. Admittedly, out of all the other choices we had in our area, the reasons we finally selected Primrose for our children boiled down to about 3 things; 1) Primrose was ideally located for our childcare needs, affording us a streamlined route between work and home for which our children could be nurtured. 2) Primrose provided the hours we needed for childcare without a drop-off/pick-up restriction that exceeded our ability to honor or maintain. As working parents, we needed a facility that would be open before we are due for work, and after we are scheduled to leave work. Primrose met this need. 3) Primrose was built as an actual school, not simply a converted building or secondary-use facility. It was founded on solid principles focused on developing children to their actual potential. It included transition classrooms and classes, active work assignments allowing our children the opportunity to grow socially, learn phonological skills, self-awareness, pre-writing skills, pre-math skills, and cognitive/critical thinking skills, and share a pre-meal prayer among others. Primrose provided a continuous assessment program from which to evaluate the learning of our children. It reinforced values within our children that are also important to us; a. Be kind to yourself and others b. Use your listening ears and your looking eyes. c. Keep your hands and your feet to yourself. d. Use your walking feet and inside voices in school. To say that I can share the “Rules of the Roost” with you simply means that Primrose doesn’t just work for our children; it works for us, too! We have since learned and experienced that Primrose truly partners with you for your child’s care, well-being, and learning. And most importantly, Primrose provides a platform from which one can offer parental feedback without the risk of indignation or pretense simply because of differing viewpoints. And, perhaps one of the most important things, it provides daily pictures and notes about curriculum and specific feedback on our children that we can share with grandparents, siblings, and others who might enjoy seeing the kids daily and learning about what they are doing. Simply put; we’re thankful that we found Primrose, and appreciative of what Primrose has given to us in kind. Our children, and our family, are better for it. Sincerely, The Stucky Family Corey, Catherine, Jillian & Jensen

  • Primrose School of Wichita Testimonial Review

    We love our Primrose Families!

    "Our daughter, Emma, has been attending Primrose Wichita East for 2 ½ years. In that time, she has benefited in learning from the most professional and passionate teachers and staff that we have ever seen. We have observed a high quality, balanced learning environment from the day one. The curriculum is impressive coupled with plenty of play time and hands on activities for the kids. Primrose has set our daughter up for a lot of success in the future.”

  • Photo of pretend play happening at Primrose School of Wichita

    Pertend Play at School!

    Pretending is important in child development. Children learn about themselves and the world. Dramatic play experiences are some of the first ways children learn about their likes and dislikes, their interests, and their abilities. They experiment with role playing and work to make sense out of what they’ve observed. Primrose School is all about it!

  • Testimonial

    Meet the Stroot Family!

    "Primrose is not just a school, it is a community. In addition to enthusiastic teachers, great facilities, attention to detail, and an impressive curriculum, Primrose goes above and beyond engaging the children in special experiences. Whether it is a cultural parade, Trunk or Treat, educational presentations by organizations throughout Wichita, or the Caring and Giving Food drive, to name a few, the children are learning well beyond the minimum child care development. We are beyond appreciative of everything Primrose has provided for our family."

We would like to recognize our leadership team, curriculum coach and chef. They help connect all the little dots to help ensure smooth daily operations. Rajesh and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work side by side with. At Primrose Schools our dream is to always inspire a love of learning to children in our community. With the help of a strong external and internal support, Raj and I feel confident that our dreams are coming true! Rajesh & Anjana Owners

  • Primrose Early childhood education

    Elementary School with (early childhood) vs. Early Childhood School

    Like many families, you are having to make a decision on School for your 3 year old. What to do? Send him/her to a Big Elementary School (with an early childhood education) or to a smaller Early Childhood School that focuses on Early Childhood Education. Our best recommendation is visit Big Schools and Early Childhood Schools to see which one you think will give your child the best foundation. Here are some great questions to ask and think about.
