Florida was one of the first states in the country to offer free prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds regardless of family income. The Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program or VPK prepares early learners for success in kindergarten and beyond. VPK helps build a strong foundation for school using educational material corresponding to various stages in a child’s development.
To be eligible, children must live in Florida and be 4 years old on or before September 1st of the current school year. Effective July 1, 2016, a new law allows parents whose children are born between February 2nd and September 1st of the calendar year to postpone enrolling their 4-year-old until the following year when their child is 5 years old.
