State Rep. Julie Bunn (DFL-Lake Elmo), District 56A, visited Primrose School of Woodbury Sept. 23 to tour the school and learn a little about issues facing early childhood education and small businesses.
Bunn was elected to the Minnesota legislature in 2006. She serves on a number of committees, including the education finance and economic competitiveness finance division.
She spoke at length with the owners of the Primrose School of Woodbury, Tonya and Travis Holt, about the concept of Primrose School of Woodbury and the Holts’ motivation for opening the school in Woodbury in October 2007.
The Holts opened Primrose School, a franchise of Primrose Schools, that provides accredited programs for infants through pre-kindergarten and after school. Primrose plans to open a full-day kindergarten program for the 2009-2010 school year.
The Holts are Woodbury residents who decided to open the Primrose School of Woodbury after their own search for quality childcare and early childhood education fell short.
The conversation with Bunn focused on what she has done, and is planning to do, for education in her district, as well as her plans to invest in early childhood education so that all children enter kindergarten with the necessary skills to learn.
The conversation also touched on Bunn’s concern for the local economy.
“As an economist, I know how important sound fiscal and tax policies are to growing our economy and creating jobs,” she said.
