New Primrose School® Breaks Ground in Livermore

Groundbreaking ceremony to be held January 11, 2017.


LIVERMORE, Calif. (January 5, 2016) –Tri-Valley families will soon have access to high-quality early education and care when the new Primrose School of Livermore opens its doors. Franchise Owners Piyoosh and Neha Jalan will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, January 11, at 2:00 p.m. alongside Livermore City Councilman Bob Carling.


“After spending more than a decade educating young children, I am happy to bring such a high-quality child care experience to Livermore,” Neha said. “Primrose Schools promotes the same nurturing, loving and balanced learning environment I would want for my own children, and from my very first visit at one of their schools, I knew opening one in the Bay Area was the right decision.”


The approximately 12,000-square-foot school will feature 10 private classrooms and is poised to serve 180 local children and their families. The school will add approximately $5.1 million in project costs to the local economy and will bring approximately 40 jobs to the community when operating at full capacity.


The new school is expected to open in the fall of 2017 and will be the third Primrose school in California.


Like the other 300-plus Primrose schools across the country, Primrose School of Livermore will offer the Primrose-exclusive Balanced Learning® approach, which blends purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, confidence, creativity and compassion.


“We send the warmest of congratulations to Neha on the groundbreaking of their new school, Primrose School of Livermore,” said Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose Schools. “At Primrose, we pride ourselves on offering our Franchise Owners and teachers outstanding support and proven tools as they help children grow and learn in a safe, nurturing environment. We are confident Neha will do just that for the children of Livermore and surrounding communities.”


Primrose School of Livermore will be located at 2901 Las Positas Road. For more information on the school, please visit For additional information on franchise opportunities with Primrose Schools in the northern California area or other growth markets, visit
