The State of Florida-funded Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) Program prepares Florida's children for a successful Elementary School experience, focusing on early language and literacy.  This program prepares four year-olds (child must be 4 on or before September 1st) for Kindergarten, building a strong foundation for lifelong educational success. Classrooms are arranged into defined learning areas and structured settings with learning domains taught by highly trained and educated teachers.  Curriculum coincides with Chappell's philosophy, wherein the development of the TOTAL CHILD is the focus.  Children in VPK not only develop skills in language, literacy, mathematics, science and social studies, but also creativity, listening, self-esteem, self-control, responsibility, and cognitive, social, emotional, physical and creative development. The eight domains of learning used in VPK are:

• Physical Health
• Approaches to Learning
• Social and Emotional Development
• Language and Communication
• Emergent Literacy
• Mathematical and Scientific Thinking
• Social Studies and The Arts
• Motor Development.

Children who participate in VPK score higher on school-readiness tests, develop better language skills, acquire better social skills, experience fewer behavioral issues and are thoroughly prepared for Kindergarten.  The benefits of the Florida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program truly promote a lifelong love of learning!

Chappell offers FREE 3-hour VPK (as well as full day VPK wrap-around care for a fee) at select locations.  Click here for details about our locations.
