VPK School Readiness

VPK and School Readiness Programs at Sunflowers Preschools

At Sunflowers Preschools, we are proud to offer VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten) and School Readiness programs to support early childhood education and prepare children for success in school and beyond. These programs offer numerous benefits for children, especially those from income-eligible families, and serve as crucial stepping stones to lifelong learning.

School Readiness Programs

Our School Readiness programs are specifically designed to help children prepare for school, particularly those from income-eligible families. These programs serve as a preventive measure for children at risk of future school failure. Priority for participation is given to children whose parents are economically disadvantaged, those determined to be at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, and children with special needs.

VPK Program

VPK is a free prekindergarten program for 4- and 5-year-olds residing in Florida. Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1 to participate. Parents have the option to enroll their child in the state’s VPK program that year or wait until the following year when their child turns 5. Click here for more information.

Benefits of Early Education and VPK

Love of Learning

Pre-K not only enhances what children learn at home but also instills a lifelong love of learning.

Crucial Brain Development

The most important growth and development in the brain occur by the age of five.

School Readiness

High-quality early childhood education programs enhance language skills, school-readiness test scores, social skills, and behavior. Children participating in these programs are better prepared for Kindergarten, especially in pre-reading, pre-math, and social skills.

Foundation for Success

The early years are the learning years, and structured early learning fosters attentiveness, direction-following, and other abilities for later success in school and life.
