Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)
Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) is a state constitutional amendment passed by voters in
November 2002 which requires a voluntary pre-kindergarten program for all
four-year-old children by fall 2005. The program is designed to prepare
four-year-old children for kindergarten and build the foundations for their
educational success. This program is voluntary for children and providers.
Pinellas County Schools participates in the state Voluntary Pre-K program by offering a program throughout the school year and summer. The school year program is limited in enrollment spaces. You child must be 4 on or before September 1 of the current school year to qualify for VPK.
What you will need to register: birth certificate, immunizations (on Florida form), physical (no older than 1 year), 2 proofs of address (electric, cable, water, etc.), and the voucher from the Early Coalition Center.
No transportation is provided by Pinellas County Schools for VPK students. For any additional information you may also visit Pinellas County Schools' website.
