    I am from Gahanna, Ohio.I began in childcare in 2008 at the Primrose School of Johnstown Road as a Young Toddler Teacher. I was also the Toddler Teacher for two years at a different school. Most recently, I’ve been the Assistant Director at the Primrose School of West Chester in Cincinnati. I have my Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Science with a minor in Early Childhood Education from the Ohio State University and a Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton. On the weekends, I enjoy cooking and hosting family and friends. I’m excited about meeting all of the staff, families, and children and getting to know everyone in our Primrose family!

    My name is Chiresse, I was born in Queens, NY, and was raised in Richmond, VA. I now live in Columbus, Ohio with my husband and our 9 year old daughter. I’ve been working in the child care field since 2008, working mainly with infants. I received my Associate of Arts Degree in IT in 2014, and my Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering. The Primrose character I most relate to is Benjamin. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, doing crafts and spending time with my family. I also love traveling to visit our families in Michigan and Virginia.

    Franchise Owners

    Please allow us to introduce ourselves- we are Joe and Krista Schaeffer, proud owners of the Primrose School of Johnstown Road.We have two sons, Carson and Parker. Before becoming Primrose Franchise Owners, Krista worked in business management as Director of National Operations with BellSouth and AT&T for 28 years and Joe worked for R.M. Clemens Companies as Foreman of Building Procedures for 20 years. In fact, Joe has been part of the school since its opening in 2008 where he helped build the school. We first heard of Primrose through our niece and nephew who are also Primrose Franchise Owners. We quickly understood what set Primrose apart from other child care centers and knew this was something we wanted the opportunity to offer families who were similar to us. Like many working families we've had our boys in child care at a young age and recognize the importance of finding quality child care that share core values and one that can be trusted to instill those same values in a safe, nurturing and fun environment. We were so excited to find Primrose incorporate all of this into their Balance Learning Curriculum. We welcome and thank you for the opportunity and privilege to care for your children as we partner to achieve the highest quality child care and educational care in America. We look forward to seeing you soon!
