Our teachers and caregivers are trained, ready and excited to help spark lightbulb moments for your child. We invite you to visit and see our Balanced Learning approach in action
We are Clarissa and Jeff Palhegyi, the proud owners of Primrose School of Mansell Road. We are beyond excited to be a part of the Primrose family and to share this amazing school with the Alpharetta community. Our love of family and commitment to our community leads us to excitedly pursue this new venture.
Prior to becoming Primrose franchise owners, we are both graduates from San Diego State University and share collectively 50 years of business ownership experience. Relatively new to Atlanta, Georgia, Clarissa comes from a background in arts education, operating one of the largest and most reputable ballet schools in Southern California. Jeff enjoys a storied career in the motorsports industry, forging a successful prototype design and engineering business.
Our greatest enjoyment outside of Primrose is the time we spend with our family. We are proud parents of two lovely young adult men, both who share our love of artistry and design and work in those fields respectively. We are also the parents to two fur babies who provide us immense fun and joy. On any given day, you can find us on our boat at the lake or at the ballfield. (We certainly love our baseball!)
Soon after relocating to Atlanta, we found ourselves looking for a career where we could work together as a team, and make a lasting difference in children’s lives. When an opportunity arose to become owners of a Primrose school, we jumped at the chance. We are so familiar with the “family business” model and we could not be prouder of the decision we made to become part of the Primrose family of schools.
We continue to be impressed and amazed by Primrose’s outstanding approach to education, the accredited curriculum, enrichment, and character development programs. We believe in importance of early literacy and are proud of our Primrose Schools partnerships with many local and national non-profit organizations.
We welcome you and look forward to a long and continued relationship, bound in the collective desire to educate our children in a welcoming, nurturing community.
We aren't just a daycare in Alpharetta , we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located, just minutes down the road from North Point Mall on Kingswood Place.
