What is Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)?

Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is a FREE state program designed to prepare every child in Florida for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. All age eligible children are entitled to participate. The VPK mission is to ensure that all children are intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically ready to enter school and are ready to learn, fully recognizing the crucial role of parents and caregivers as their child’s first teacher.
