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

    To get started, simply register your child with the Early Learning Coalition and bring that registration to Chappell! It’s really just that simple.
