Our Story

An excellent Christian preschool experience

Since 1973, BFC Preschool has been serving families in Ventura County as a ministry of Bible Fellowship Church. We became ENCOUNTER Preschool in November 2017.

BFC Preschool began in 1973 under Bible Fellowship Church with one teacher serving 15 children. Debbie Keegan became the Director in 1990. Under her leadership, the staff has grown to 25 teachers serving over 230 families through a wide variety of enrichment programs.

In the Fall of 2017, we made a decision to change our name from BFC/Bible Fellowship Preschool to ENCOUNTER Preschool to align with the name of the church and strengthen our presence in the community. We are under the guidance of the church’s Board of Elders as well as the Preschool Board.

Our desire is to continue to serve Ventura County with an excellent Christian preschool experience for children and families.
