The Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program – or VPK – is a free prekindergarten program for 4-year-olds who reside in Florida and were born on or before Sept. 1 each year.
VPK gives each child an opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten with programs that emphasize early literacy, and social and emotional development. Our small class sizes and qualified instructors follow a curriculum and assessment process guided by the State of Florida.
Parents can choose from one of several program options available from private and public providers. Providers have flexibility to structure the hours per day and days per week to meet the required number of instructional hours.
For more information about VPK and signing up, please visit Pinellas County VPK Programs on their website.
