Franchise Owners

Priyank and Riya Bakani

Meet the Bakani’s, we are the proud owners of Primrose School of East Brainerd and Primrose School of Hixson. Together, we Riya and Priyank Bakani are thrilled to bring an unparalleled life changing early education experience to the children and families in our community.


Our Journey has been deeply influenced by our upbringing in the families of doctors and entrepreneurs. Growing up, we were fortunate to be immersed in an enriched environment where education and family values served as the driving force. This ignited a deep passion for early education and a strong believe in its ability and importance to shape young minds. It is this calling that led us to the field of child care, where we want to play a crucial role by committing ourselves to making a difference in lives of young children. Recognizing the utmost importance of child’s development in the first five years, we were dedicated to create a curriculum with a holistic approach towards growth and learning. At the core of our philosophy lies the belief that a happy mind can work wonders. With this in mind, we aimed to create a positive, joyful and safe environment, fostering a happiest community of children, parents and teachers – a true home away from home.


During the course of our research, we discovered that Primrose’s balanced learning program, their vison and mission completely meshed with our philosophy. What impressed us most was the Primrose’s guiding principal of who children become is just as important as what they know. Focusing not just on growth but on developing a child through purposeful play, encouraging curiosity, confidence and compassion resonated deeply with us. Furthermore, Primrose’s sterling reputation made Primrose an ideal opportunity for us.


We feel incredibly fortunate to have acquired Primrose Schools, and inheriting a team rich in culture, consisting of highly experienced professionals and leaders with over 20 years of child care experience. Together, with our passion, purpose and a phenomenal team, we are determined to create the happiest learning environment for children to reach their full potential.


We want to welcome you to join our vision of creating the brightest minds in the country by providing a solid foundation to children. Together, we can shape their future and make a lasting impact for generations to come. We look forward to meeting you and embarking on this journey together to provide the best possible experience to your child.

Our family would love to meet yours.
