  • Julie and Bryan Bowman, Franchise Owner

    Julie and Bryan Bowman

    Franchise Owners

    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.
