VOLUNTARY PRE-KINDERGARTEN

FREE VPK is available to all Florida four-year-olds and five-year olds.

AGE REQUIREMENTS

Your child must be four years of age on or before September 1st of the school year in which they will attend VPK. If your child’s 4th birthday falls between February 2nd and September 1st in a calendar year, you may choose to post-pone enrolling your child in VPK that year and wait until the following year when your child is 5 years old. 

SCHOOL YEAR OR SUMMER

The program gives families two choices to participate: a 540 instructional hour school year program or a 300 hour summer program.   

PREPARE FOR KINDERGARTEN

The Florida VPK program provides developmentally appropriate instruction and activities to prepare your child for Kindergarten.

HOW TO REGISTER

Register through the Florida’s Early Learning Family Portal.  You will need your child’s original birth certificate, your (legal guardian’s) ID, as well as your proof of Florida residence.
