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 a great fit for your child. I am enthusiastic, creative, with a combination of energy that keeps going and going. While away from the schools, I am a mom too! My first, Penelope was born in 2011 and is in 4th grade and my other daughter, Cleo, was born in 2014 and just starting 1st 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 yet another cup of coffee from Cafe Javasti. 

I cannot wait to learn more about each student, and their families. Always feel free to contact me with any questions, or concerns. Being the small school that we are, it makes it possible for us to build quality relationships with each family. I look forward to your child’s future and education.
