VPK (VOLUNTARY PRE KINDERGARTEN) INFORMATION
What is VPK?
Voluntary Pre Kindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. If you live in Florida and have a child who turned four years of age by September 1, your child is eligible for Florida's FREE VPK program.
Our VPK Program is:
Monday through Thursday (VPK-Only) 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM FREE
or Monday through Friday (VPK-Plus) 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM - $75 per month
- The most important growth and development in the brain happen by the age of five.
- The early years are learning years. A child's ability to be attentive and to follow directions emerges in the early years. Structured early learning fosters these abilities for later success in school and life.
- Pr-K prepares children to be ready for school. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems once they enter school. They are also better prepared for Kindergarten, especially in the areas of pre-reading, pre-math and social skills.
- Pre-K promotes a love of learning in children. Pre-K enhances what a child learns at home and instills a love of life-long learning.
All VPK providers must meet high standards required by law. Parents can choose a private and/or faith-based child care center that meets their own family's needs.
