As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses"
series, we sat down this week with Matt and Anne Evers of Primrose
School of Atascocita.
Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer, and how long have you been around?
School of Atascocita is a premium preschool offering care for children
ages six weeks through twelve years. We have classrooms ranging from
infants through kindergarten and afterschool care. Our school serves the
Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita, Huffman, and Crosby communities. How did you decide to get involved in this line of work? How did the business get started?
Primrose School of Atascocita was originally opened in 1999. In 2014 we
needed childcare for our first son, Cooper. Feeling disappointed by
our experience , we decided to purchase our own school. We became the
proud owners of Primrose School of Atascocita in 2015. Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
are proud to provide an invaluable service to the area which we live.
Owning Primrose School of Atascocita allows us to play an integral part
in developing future leaders. We also feel blessed to provide a place of
employment for nearly 30 amazing members of our community.
really sets us apart is what we call our Primrose Journey, which is the
path that led us to owning our school. This journey plays a large part
of what drives our efforts to be the best. Unfortunately, in 2014, with
Cooper we had a negative experience at a local daycare. When we brought
concerns to the leadership, we didn’t feel as if they cared. We felt
like just a number. When we left the daycare, we were made to feel as if
there was another child waiting to take our place. This experience
drove our decision to purchase our own school. We never want a family to
feel as we did. The desire for every family to feel like their child is
the only one that matters is very important to us. Since both of our
children attend the school it is very easy for us to ask ourselves when
making daily decisions, “What’s the best choice for the child? What will
result in the best outcome for the child? What’s going to produce the
best educational experience for the child?”
What is your favorite part of running this business?
favorite part of running this school is getting to know the wonderful
families in this community. We have made so many friends the last five
years that started out as families in our school. Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?
serve families with children ages six weeks to twelve years who want
the best educational experience for their child. We are not a
traditional daycare that just babysits your child. We are a school that
will provide a proven head start to your child’s elementary school years
and beyond. Our after-school program is for parents that need a
nurturing place where their children can make friends and continue to
learn while having fun. Can you tell us something about yourself as the business owner? What is your background?
is from Crosby and graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelors in
Economics. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Anne attended the University of
Wisconsin, where she had a double major in psychology and business,
then earned a Masters of Law. We both have a background in sales,
marketing and customer service. We have two sons that attend Primrose
School of Atascocita. Are there any special promotions, annual sales, or special events that you'd like to mention?
have exciting events planned for this fall and winter, such as our
Magical Pumpkin Patch, where the children will discuss planting seeds
and how plants grow as they plant magical pumpkin seeds. When they
arrive at school the next day, they will be excited to see magical
pumpkins have grown overnight in our Primrose Patch! We are hopeful to
be able to continue our tradition of hosting a Fall Festival while
taking precautions as needed due to the current circumstances. Is there any other information you would like your potential customers/clients to know about your business?
are taking measures to adhere to high standards of safety and
cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where
children can thrive. The health and safety of our staff and the children
entrusted to our care is our top priority.
How do you see your business growing and improving over the next couple of years?
hope to continue to meet the needs of the families in our community for
years to come and for more families to join our school.
