The Voluntary Prekindergarten Program (VPK) is a free program for Florida residents designed to prepare 4-year-olds for kindergarten, to help build the foundation for their educational success. VPK program provides a play-based learning experience that supports the development of early literacy, executive functioning, and social emotional skills. According to the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener, children who participate in VPK are better
prepared for success in school.
Parents have the option to enroll in a school-year program that consists of three or more hours a day instruction, or a summer program that is a full day. We also offer Specialized Instructional Services, which takes place outside a traditional classroom setting to assist 4-year-olds with special needs.
