Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK)
The Center for Early Learning Palm Beach Gardens provides Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) annually to approximately thirty children. Children must turn four years of age by September 1st of each school year to be eligible. The Center provides VPK during the months of August through May. The exact starting and ending date will be determined and announced annually. The Center's VPK program operates Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. free of charge (additional hours are available at a nominal fee).
Children are provided with kindergarten readiness enrichment materials and will be assessed throughout the year to determine areas of strengths and challenges. VPK teachers will work closely with children's parents to determine any individual needs in order to best prepare the child for kindergarten success. In order to enroll in the Center's VPK program you must first complete a Center Waitlist Form to determine availability and then visit a VPK Registration site to complete an application and to provide proof of Florida residency.
