Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is a legislatively mandated program designed to prepare every four-year-old in Florida for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. The VPK program gives 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 four-year-olds are entitled to participate in the VPK program, which consists of 540 instructional hours. The VPK program is FREE for eligible children, regardless of family income. Because of our Gold Seal status and APPLE Accreditation, SUNCHILD Academy has been an approved VPK Provider since the program’s inception in 2005.
