The Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education Program prepares early learners for success in kindergarten and beyond. Children must live in Florida and be 4-years-old on or before September 1st of the current school year to be eligible.

The program helps build a strong foundation for school using educational materials that are geared to various stages in a child’s development. A school-year program provides 540 hours of instruction with class sizes of no more than 20 children. A summer program includes 300 instructional hours and class sizes no larger than 12 students.
