Three/Four Year Old Program

The Pre K3B Program at A Sunny Start Preschool provides an extra year of prep as we prepare children for their journey into the academically intensive VPK Classroom. Using the Creative Curriculum, our teachers help them become independent and feel that they are an important part of our community through extensive exposure to social experiences. Throughout the year, our teachers help children negotiate, interact with peers, and make good choices. We provide lessons and activities in the areas of art, music, science, dramatic play, math, writing, and reading skills.

Writing my first and last name at daycare!Program Highlights


  • At A Sunny Start Preschool, handwriting is used as a kinesthetic tool for learning.
  • Children begin writing letters, numbers, their first and last name, and shapes independently in smaller print than in the PK3A Program.
  • Our teachers focus on improving skills rather than pushing for perfection at this age.
  • Homework is sent on a daily basis to reinforce the lessons being taught in class.

Sight words to help prepare us for VPKReading

  • We base our PK3B Reading program on the mastery of phonics skills such as the recognition of all letters and letter sounds, identification of vowels, and blending two letter sounds together.
  • Our students learn word recognition through the identification of color words, number words, classmates’ names, and over 60 additional sight words for a total of an exposure to 80 words.
  • Our approach is to teach words that are repeated frequently in the literature that the children are reading in class.

Science, Engineering, and Mathematics

  • Using Montessori science to discover real shells At A Sunny Start Preschool, we believe in developing a specific skill set of building and scaffolding in the young minds of our students.
  • Our teachers construct activities which foster these brain processes through science, engineering, and mathematics enrichment.
  • PK3B students engage in counting, comparing, sorting, patterning, measuring, dividing, and sequencing through our math curriculum.
  • They also build, tinker, assemble, and create just like budding architects!
  • Our PK3B program features an enriched vocabulary curriculum through the use of literature and discussion.

Language Enrichment
Using letters to craft a story at our Kendall center

  • It is our desire to instill a love of books and reading at this age, which will lead to a lifelong journey of adventure through literature.
  • Thematic units enhance the study of seasonal changes and events in order to foster connections to real life experiences.
  • Do not be surprised when your child is able to identify the femur and tibia on a Halloween skeleton; that is our language development program at work!

Individualized Approach
Building puzzles in our Tamiami preschool

  • At A Sunny Start Preschool, we believe in meeting the needs of each child through assessment and intervention.
  • Lesson plans are customized to strengthen the academically weak areas of each child.
  • Children are placed in small reading groups to encourage them to advance at an appropriate pace with peers who possess a similar skill set.
  • Creative development is fostered through artwork, which is created daily in the classroom.
  • Art projects also serve to enhance fine motor skills, which are crucial at this stage of development.

My kids attending A Sunny Start Preschool has been nothing but a good experience. I have four children, which have all attended this preschool starting from when they were babies all the way through graduation. The most comforting feeling is to know that your kids are being well taken care of. Not to mention, being well educated at the same time. Their academic program aided my kids to have a much easier transition into kindergarten. As a parent, starting your morning knowing that your children are happy and excited to go to school puts your mind at ease. The staff is very professional, but at the same token so family oriented that it makes the kids feel like they are at home. Another great quality in A Sunny Start Preschool is the nutritional menu they have to offer, not worrying about having to pack healthy lunch, snacks and drinks is a big plus. I strongly recommend A Sunny Start Preschool.

Parent Testimonials

  • My daughter graduated from the school this year and started Kindergarten. Going into her fourth week of her big transition, her teachers informed me that she had an outstanding base from her preschool and is reading first grade level! A Sunny Start Preschool prepared my little girl in a spectacular way! The staff is very professional and family oriented not to mention superb state of the art facility. Needless to say I highly recommend the school!

  • I love love love this preschool/daycare! Very caring and loving staff and my oldest son loves going every day! I am so excited my twins also started a few months ago, they are so happy here as well. The teachers here are amazing! They genuinely care about the students and the woman in charge of curriculum for the school is always looking for new and great ways to teach the kids. I have 3 children at this school and could not be happier.

  • My grandchildren have all attended A Sunny Start Preschool and this was the only preschool they attended. Three of the four are already in Elementary School and thanks to the foundation that they developed in this school, they are students with high grades. Thank you very much to all the teachers who are always attentive and patient with children. The quality of academics that children receive at this school is evident in their success.

  • I would recommend this school to any parent searching for a preschool with an excellent curriculum. My daughter is 7 years old and attended this preschool. After graduating from Pre K she tested advanced at her current Charter elementary school. Her teachers were impressed at her knowledge and how advanced her reading was. This school helped her read and went over all the subjects she needed to prepare her for Elementary. She recently tested for gifted this year by MDCPS. This was all due to the foundation she received here. The teachers are amazing and caring. Two of my friends that had their children here also tested for gifted. I am so happy with the school, the curriculum, the teachers, and the staff and now my son currently attends A Sunny Start Preschool. I would not go anywhere else.

  • I'm happy to have found this place. The attention is the best. The teachers are the best. My children learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly say to you that every child that goes through this program comes out a winner!

    – Gladys M, Mom of Denisse and Daniela
  • I recommended A Sunny Start Preschool to all whom have children from birth to 6 & more if they would take older.  I am a proud mother of very bright and advanced children thanks to the tutelage of Teacher Carmen, Milly, Angela, & Sofia. As you can see I have had an experience with every level of teacher in the school. I have a Kindergarten boy which I am proud to say is in K- 1 in his school. For those who do not know what K-1, this is where Kindergarten students are also being taught with 1st graders. My four year old is still at A Sunny Start Preschool and she is extremely bright. The curriculum in her class is incredibly advanced and even though I hate homework she is always excited and eager to do it. She can identify words and knows her numbers this also has to do with the fact she loves her school. All this and she has not yet started VPK because of her birthday, but she will be starting come this school year. Thank you Jennifer, Carmen, Milly, Angela, Sofia & Tatiana you guys are the best.
