Peace of mind. It’s what any parent seeking childcare wants.
And it’s peace of mind that Brian and Melissa Mart found at daughter Payton’s local Primrose School that led them to start a school of their own. Veranda is proud to feature such a premier childcare facility and to have Brian and Melissa as one of the first tenants to open here. Here’s their story…
Impressed with Payton’s growth, Primrose’s Balanced Learning® curriculum and the enthusiastic community impact of the school, the Marts felt ready to embark on an entrepreneurial journey. Embracing their relevant educational skills, learned in corporate careers and with extensive volunteer work, Brian and Melissa are confident in and excited about their new endeavor.
“Melissa and I knew that starting a Primrose school in our community would be an opportunity to do something we are passionate about while providing premier early education and care for local families,” said Brian. And they knew locating near Briar Chapel and Chapel Hill would be the perfect fit. “Briar Chapel was the perfect neighborhood to live, work and play.” said Brian. “We knew it was the right place the minute we drove in.”
Brian and Melissa have long been passionate about serving children and community. Brian has coached, volunteered on behalf of children and offered in-home education to children during his medical sales and training career. Melissa has served as a Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentor, created a “Be Cool, Stay in School” program for elementary students and delivered education programs to medical and pharmaceutical companies.
At their Primrose School, Melissa and Brian seek to offer a safe, happy and educational atmosphere for children, delivering parents what they want most—peace of mind. The school is expected to open in late August.
