VPK Overview

​​​Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is a free, state-funded program available to children who are four-years-old on or before September 1. VPK is a school readiness program prior to kindergarten eligibility.  Children who are 5 by September 1, 2012 are eligible to attend  school year VPK and those who will be 5 by September 1, 2013 are eligible to attend VPK in the summer of 2013.
Families select either a school year 3-hour per day program or wait until the summer for a full-day program.  Families are not offered the option to enroll in both programs. 
Volusia County School District continues registration for the summer VPK program at the student's home zoned school.  Although families must register at the school for which their home address zones them, they may select from among any designated schools for summer programs.
