Parent Opportunities


DOT Tot is a parent-run corporation. The continued success of DOT Tot is possible with the support and participation of each and every parent or guardian. There are a variety of fun and creative ways for parents or guardians to contribute to the center. Please see below for a list of ideas to contribute to the center:

  • Donate gently used toys (infant – 5 yrs.) 

  • Donate gently used clothes (infant – 5 yrs.)

  • Copies (Pooh, Elmo, and Tigger Bug classes always need copies)

  • Ask any teacher if they have something you can do at home to help them prepare for an art project.

  • Buy batteries (Pooh and Elmo especially need batteries all the time)

  • Attend DOT Tot events (Spring picnic, Mother’s Day Tea, Father’s Day Breakfast, Zoo trip, Parade to Cal trans, Holiday singing at Cal trans, etc.)

  • Mr. or Mrs. Fix It (We always have things that need repaired)
