By developing the skills children need to become strong readers and students at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school. VPK classrooms offer high-quality programs that include high literacy standards, developmentally appropriate curricula, manageable class sizes, and qualified teachers.

If you have a child who turns 4 years of age by September 1, they are eligible for Florida's FREE VPK program. the program includes 540 hours of instructional time and begins in August.

Benefits of early education and the VPK progam

  • The most important growth and development in the brain happens by the age of five.
  • The early years are the learning years. A childs ability to be attentive and to follow directions emerges in the early years. Structured early learning fosters these abilities for later success in the school and in life
  • Pre-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.
  • Pre-K promotes a love of learning in children
