Franchise Owners

Chris and Irina Fofiu

Meet Irina and Chris Fofiu – proud Franchise Owners of Primrose School of Buckhead. As longtime members of the Atlanta community, they are thrilled to offer premier early education and care to Buckhead families.

When Irina and Chris were expecting their first daughter, Karina, the search for the perfect quality early education and care provider was surprisingly difficult. The couple worked long and hard to find the best option that provided a high-quality education, yet also a nurturing environment. The family finally found a great fit in Primrose Schools. Although they did not have a school in their neighborhood, they were immediately impressed by Primrose’s Balanced Learning® curriculum, caring atmosphere and highly engaging staff. Looking to fill a need for quality child care in their family and in the community, the Fofius decided to open their own Primrose school in Buckhead.

“After touring a Primrose school and learning about the impact the exclusive Balanced Learning® curriculum and character development program have on a child’s cognitive, social and emotional development, we immediately knew Primrose was the right fit for our family and community,” said Irina. “We are looking forward to making a tangible difference in the lives of children and families that reside and work in Buckhead.”

Originally from Romania, Irina and Chris both came to Atlanta after graduating high school and attended Georgia Tech. They met in college, while Irina was pursuing a degree in Building Construction and Chris was studying Computer Science. Education has always been a very important value in the Fofiu family; the couple made a promise to themselves to one day give families with young children access to quality and trusted early childhood education. And they’re delighted to finally extend that commitment to their community.

“My parents, both university level professors, instilled in me the desire to learn and teach, and I’ve always felt driven to help children through education and entrepreneurship,” said Irina.

The Fofiu’s goal is to offer an atmosphere that will foster a love of learning and help children grow their Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®. The couple is committed to creating an environment that is seen as an extension of the families they will be serving, providing parents with peace of mind knowing their children are well cared for while receiving a premier education. Irina and Chris hope that Primrose School of Buckhead will also provide a solution for parents who work in the area and wish to remain near their children throughout the day.

At the school, Irina handles the day-to-day operations, working closely with parents, children and staff, while Chris supports the school remotely as he continues his career in IT and business analytics. The couple’s two children, Karina and Sofia, attend the Westminster Schools, and Sofia is a proud graduate of Primrose School of Buckhead.

Irina and Chris look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Primrose family!

Our family would love to meet yours.
