Hi, I am Julie Bowman. My dad (Joe Deppen) and I are the proud owners and operators of the Primrose School at Bridgewater. My husband Bryan and I have three beautiful children named Adelyn, Gavin, and Alaina. My love for my family and my passion for education are what drove me to open my first Primrose School and now open another school in the Westfield area.
My lifelong dream has been to open a school of my own. After researching schools and the requirements to start my own, I stumbled upon Primrose Schools. I continue to be amazed by Primrose's outstanding approach to education, their accredited curriculum and their character development programs.
My professional career has been in education for the past 12 years with Hamilton Southeastern Schools. While with HSES, I worked as a special education teacher at the elementary and high school levels for 5 years, as an assistant principal for 3 years, and spent the last 3 years as the Principal at Sand Creek Intermediate School. I have a Bachelors Degree in Special Education, a Director of Special Education degree, a Masters in School Administration and have finished all coursework to receive my doctorate in education administration.
Westfield is an amazing community and I am pleased with the opportunity to open a second school, the Primrose School at Bridgewater. Our schools are outstanding, with Cognia accredited curriculum. Our Primrose School is like no other private preschool in the state of Indiana. Please give us the opportunity to show you how much of a difference we can make in your children's lives. I promise you will not be disappointed.
We aren’t just a daycare in Westfield, we are a premier early education and child care experience for children and families. We are conveniently located just minutes down the road from Village Park Plaza on N. Gray Road.

Reading with your child in the first five years helps develop early literacy skills and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime! Learn how to aid in your child's literacy journey.
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.
Each Primrose school is held to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.
It's a fact: children learn better when they are engaged. That's why purposeful play and nurturing guidance from teachers are key components of Balanced Learning. See how this time-tested approach with a strong emphasis on life skills and character development can help your child develop and excel.
