What is VPK?
Who is eligible?
The Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) program was created to make sure every child in Florida can gain the skills and knowledge they need to be successful learners in kindergarten and beyond.
The VPK certificate pays for a portion of the prekindergarten tuition. Children can use their VPK certificate either during the school year or over the summer, immediately before kindergarten entry.
Our VPK program provides opportunities for children to be creative problem-solvers and to build critical social and language skills so they can be successful in school and throughout life.
VPK is available for all Florida children in the year before they enter Kindergarten; there are no income restrictions. Children must be either four or five years old on September 1st.
Any child who turns four years old after September 1st must wait until the next school year before being eligible for VPK.
To apply for a VPK certificate, visit the local early learning coalition: www.elchc.org
If your child is not eligible for a VPK certificate, be sure to ask us about our private preschool and prekindergarten programs.
Learning through play in VPK!
Play is a child’s most important work. It is through play that children explore, learn, and grow. As they play, children use language to share ideas and negotiate with peers, they practice and refine social skills, and they discover ways to solve interesting problems. Play enhances problem-solving and creativity, important skills for children to be successful in school and throughout life.
Our daily routines include many opportunities for playful learning. Read more about play-based learning here!
