Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)

More information for parents of preschoolers.

Good Shepherd Preschool participates in Florida's Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program (VPK), offering free prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds regardless of family income.

To be eligible, children must live in Florida and be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the current school year. Parents whose children are born between Feb. 2 and Sept. 1 can postpone enrolling their 4-year-old until the following year when their child is 5.

Families must apply for VPK with the Florida Division of Early Learning.
