FRANCHISE OWNER

My dear friends thank you for your interest in Primrose School of Wichita West. My name is Anjana and my wonderful husband is Rajesh. We were thrilled to provide the very first premier educational child care option to Wichita/Andover area and after 4 years of a successful program we are now expanding to West Wichita/Maize area. Our programs feature 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!

    Critical Thinkers!

    The learning doesn’t stop this summer! In Project Time our preschool students used their critical thinking skills to make boats out of tin foil and also balance them, so they stay afloat. They got to experiment with a variety of toy animals and dice to keep their boats balanced and afloat. Practicing critical thinking skills safely with compassion, is the best gift we can give our Primrose students!

    Design Challenge!

    During Project time this week, our preschooler's started on their engineering design challenge! They discussed different parts of a train by looking through our book “Freight Train” by Donald Crews. They observed how the parts are similar and different and if each train part can hold cargo or not. They spent some time drawing out our designs. This week, our 3 year old's will be building a train that can carry one of our Primrose puppet friends! This will be a big challenge, but we are excited and ready for it!

  • Primrose School of Wichita West Family Recommendation

    Meet the Graham Family and their transition into our School!

    Our experience at Primrose West started over six months ago with our youngest baby, Marshall. He was struggling at our original daycare; refusing to take bottles or food, and cried a lot. That was hard for us because he is such a happy baby at home. We decided to try Primrose, and he did so much better! We would see him smile at his teachers, and get excited to be there. He took bottles better, and took solid foods pretty well! We started to see our baby be himself at Primrose, where he felt loved and safe to do so. He has continued to thrive in the toddler classroom, and we know we made the right decision for daycare. Our oldest son, Austin, seemed content at our original PreK. We hesitated to switch him with less than a year before Kindergarten. He tends to be shy at first, and was nervous about starting a new school. Austin started PreK at Primrose in February. It helped that his younger brother already knew the ropes and Austin liked the idea of being at the same place with Marshall. He is slowly coming out of his shell, and comes home full of wonderful stories about activities every day. The PreK teachers have done a great job at supporting his transition. They picked up on his love of helping, and were quick to give him jobs that made him feel important and busy while getting used to the new faces. He loves his teachers and new friends, and has more confidence in his ability to start a new school this fall. He already had a love of learning. Primrose has built on that and he is thrilled to be learning new things every day. We are glad we switched to Primrose, and wish we would have come here sooner! Matt, Andrea, Austin, and Marshall Graham

  • testimonial for primrose school of Wichita

    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

    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. At Primrose Schools we give our children these opportunities!

  • Primrose Curriculum

    Smart Curriculum!

    Our infants and toddlers explored painting their reflection during Early Art Master program. Learning new concepts by exploring familiar items with their senses is important with infants and toddlers because the familiar toys provide the context for the new concepts.

  • Primrose 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.
