Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is a legislatively mandated program designed to prepare every child in Florida for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. The VPK program provides 540 hours of instruction during a school year or 300 hours in summer.
VPK provides each child an opportunity to perform better in school and throughout life with quality programs that include high literacy standards, accountability, appropriate curricula, substantial instruction periods, manageable class sizes, and qualified instructors.
All eligible children are entitled to participate in one of the VPK program options. It’s FREE to parents.
