Welcome to the Pre-K Class (The Sunbeam's)
About The Sunbeam's Class
The Sunbeam Class is our Kindergarten-readiness program for 4- and 5-year-olds. Our Pre-K class maintains a lower than mandated ratio (8 children to 1 teacher, rather than a 12 to 1 ratio). This lower ratio provides your child with more one-on-one attention and gives the class the opportunity to participate in activities that wouldn't be possible otherwise. We know that there are many things the children need to know before they move on to "big school" - and we want to help them through that process. Our Sunbeam's Pre-K curriculum follows a standard school year calendar (September through May). All classroom programming and activities are geared toward preparing students for their next big step, and include being able to write their own names, advanced counting and number concepts, and phonics concepts.
Meet Our Teachers
Andrea Manza - Teacher
I joined DOT Tot in August 2019. Although this is my first teaching experience I have worked with a lot of different children. I come from a big family and have helped care for siblings, cousins, and other young family members. I really look forward to this experience. Along with utilizing what I have learned in college, putting into practical use, I look forward to what I can learn from the current staff, as well as the children. I speak Spanish and incorporate that into the classroom.
