    Bright Futures Preschool
      License #493006889

    Located on the Loma Vista Immersion Academy campus, Bright Futures Preschool is a half-day preschool program funded by the California Department of Education’s Child Development Division and operated by Old Adobe Union School District's Child Development Department. We are a Quality Counts program and are designed to meet the developmental needs and to support academic readiness in three and four year old children. Following California Department of Education and OAUSD reopening guidelines, Bright Futures Preschool will be operating as a Distance Learning program until further notice.

    What is Distance Learning? Our Bright Futures Preschool Distance Learning program uses Zoom and SeeSaw to connect with families and to provide a weekly newsletter, weekly virtual small group meet-ups, activity prompts, and resources. Hands-on materials are available through a weekly materials pick-up. Our teachers will work to meet families where they are and to provide activities that will help to further learning for children. 

    About BFPS

    Our goal is to provide preschoolers and their parents the necessary tools needed to succeed in their academic futures, guided by the California Preschool Learning Foundations, the California Desired Results, and NAEYC’s Four Goals of Anti-Bias Education. As part of Old Adobe School District, our preschool teachers work closely with OAUSD kindergarten teachers to enhance the preschool curriculum & prepare the children for academic success.

    Enrollment - We provide a developmentally appropriate preschool and kindergarten readiness program for children ages 3 to 5 years or until entering kindergarten.  Eligible children have their 3rd or 4th birthday on or before December 1st of the current program year. Children who have their 3rd birthday after December 2 may be enrolled on or after their third birthday. 

    The first 24 eligible children, according to the criteria established by the California Department of Education Early Learning and Care Division, who have filled out their application information completely and qualify under the said guidelines by June 30 each year will be accepted into the Bright Futures Preschool program for the upcoming school year. All applicants are placed on our in-house eligibility list, which follows mandated State of California guidelines, and will be notified when an opening occurs.
