Froggie Frontier Preschool & Childcare
Hop Into Learning at Froggie Frontier
Mrs. F. is a credentialed teacher who taught in the Buckeye District for 20 years. She taught Kindergarten for 15 years and over time, saw the standards change and demand much more of the students. She believes that the rigorous expectations placed on current Kindergarten students makes a child's preschool experience more important than ever. She has developed a well rounded program that balances the need for kids to be kids while still getting them ready for Kindergarten.
In addition to her elementary school teaching experience, she also taught preschool for 7 years. Mrs. F. has also held a variety of jobs developing programs for and working with youth. She was the Youth Services Director for a YMCA where she oversaw camp, teen, and other youth programs and she was the Recreation Services Director for a nearby Parks and Recreation Department where she coordinated youth, teen and adult classes and programs and community wide special events.
Ms. Sudhanya has her Bachelor's degree in Home Economics and also her AA degree in Early Childhood Education. She has been with Froggie Frontier since it opened in 2009 and teaches the morning Pre-K Froggies class and is the acting director when Mrs. F. is not on site. Prior to coming to Froggie, she worked in a variety of preschool settings including the CSD in El Dorado Hills and the Folsom Lake Child Development Center. She is a conscientious, reflective teacher who is always striving to bring her very best to the classroom and to her students.
