Prekindergarten (VPK)

The School District of Palm Beach County participates in the Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) program.  With support from the Department of Early Childhood Education, select schools offer full-day prekindergarten programming, as well as a summer VPK program.  All programs provide enriched educational experiences which ensure children are prepared academically and socially to enter kindergarten.  Classrooms utilize a research-based academic curriculum and provide caring and engaging opportunities for children to develop critical social-emotional skills.
