Owner/Director, Mrs. Tristan
Hi! My name is Tristan Christophilis and I am thrilled you are interested in BBP!
I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Sociology in 2001. After taking one year off from school I went back to get my Masters in Teaching (M.i.T) and teaching certification. After accomplishing my degrees, I worked as a caretaker for two young children while studying several successful Seattle schools. With some extensive research and identifying what a Seattle Preschool should be, I created my concept of a perfect preschool.
I am confident you will find BBP an excellent fit for your child. I am enthusiastic, and creative, with a combination of energy that keeps going and going. While away from school, I am a mom too! My first, Penelope, was born in 2011 and is in 6th grade, and my other daughter, Cleo, was born in 2014 and in 3nd grade. We recently added a new fur baby to the family, Ruthie! In my free (me) time, you can find me reading, practicing yoga, or enjoying another cup of coffee from Walnut Coffee in Edmonds.
I cannot wait to learn more about each student and their family. Always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Being the small school that we are makes it possible for us to build quality relationships with each family. I look forward to your child’s future and education.
