Welcome to the Bright Beginnings Website.  We are convinced that this school is a very special place for children to learn and grow, so we are excited to share with you some information about  our school which make it unique. BBCP is an extension of The River Family Church in Vista with Pastors Matthew and Amy Stoehr, who serve as the administrators of the school and provide pastoral oversite.  Our amazing director is Ms. Hope Ontiveros, who has  over 22 years of experience  in North County working with  young children and teaching staffs in a pre-school setting.  The program currently includes four groups, with a teacher/student ration of 12:1.

We are a distinctively Christian school and emphasize creating an encouraging, joyful atmosphere where every child can experience the  fun adventure of learning.  The  year-round school hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and we observe all  school district holidays. Some of the strengths of BBCP are listed below.

  1. Each child  is valued as uniquely special, individually loved by God and created  by Him an eternal purpose, which we want to cultivate.
  2. Excellent, nurturing staff who love children and who each have decades of outstanding education experience teaching young children.
  3. Effective academic and Bible curriculum that make learning fun.
  4. Emphasis on establishing a solid foundation in language, math, science and Bible.
  5. Daily schedule which provides structure, yet freedom to explore, learn, grow and play.
  6. Teachers incorporate multi-sensory methods of teaching, including auditory, visual, hands on and group interaction.
  7. Secure, clean, orderly and happy environment.
  8. We value effective communication with parents concerning their child’s progress.
