Florida's Voluntary Prekindergarten Program

School doesn't start in kindergarten anymore, it starts in VPK! Florida's Free Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Program is designed to prepare four-year-olds for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success.

VPK Mission

To ensure that all children are intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially ready to enter school and ready to learn, fully recognizing the crucial role of parents as their child's first teacher.


VPK registration for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 programs are now available.
