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!

At Primrose, your child will get more than an infant daycare experience. Our teachers help your child develop and grow, building one skill upon another, which is why we are the leader in infant child care.
With many schools starting the school year in a partial or full virtual-learning mode, we are pleased to announce our new learning environment designed for children eligible for K through 5th grade, the All Day Explorer Club.
Our Balanced Learning® approach weaves in character development and life skills into daily learning experiences because we believe who children become is as important as what they know.
Primrose School of Buckhead was voted the best child care program in Buckhead for the 2nd year in a row
To better meet the individual needs of every child, we’re proud to implement Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®-3 and ASQ®:SE-2) in Primrose schools across the country.
Our new exclusive Harmony & Heart® program integrates our proprietary music and books in a variety of thoughtful ways each day. Through learning about music, while simultaneously being exposed to concepts in math, language, and character development, your child will grow as a musician, a student, and a person.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
We are hiring for various teaching, support and administration staff positions for different levels and classrooms.
There’s no question that parents want their preschoolers to grasp the basics of colors, numbers and letters to foster a lifetime of learning.
