Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK)
Florida voters understand that what children learn today shapes their tomorrow, and that the tomorrows of our children affect us all. That’s why they approved a 2002 ballot initiative for the state to fund high-quality Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) for every 4-year-old child in Florida. Florida’s FREE VPK program will give every child the chance to fulfill their potential and achieve their tomorrow.
All children living in Florida who turn 4 years old by September 1 of the current program year are eligible to participate. For more information about VPK, download the parent resources included below.
