    Bill Taylor and Renae Hobbs

    Franchise Owners

    We are very excited and proud to be the owners of Primrose School of Lakeville North. With both of our families having young children, we were going through the challenging process of finding educational child care. We were very determined to find a school that would provide the best education as well as a loving and nurturing environment. A place we would feel safe leaving our children, and at the end of the day know that they were being put in an environment that would help them develop to the best of their abilities. Our search ended with Primrose School. We believe yours will too. We are life-long Minnesotans and have lived or been part of many of the communities around the metro area. We believe educational child care is a high priority for the people of Minnesota. When we were given the opportunity to bring Primrose School to the community of Lakeville we were very excited. This is a community we are very familiar with, and excited to be a part of. As owners we all have different educational and career skills, which we believe will aid us in the management of a premiere school. We all share a passion to make a difference in our children's lives, and the lives of your children as well! We believe with this school we can make that difference. We are looking forward to bringing a Primrose School to the community!
