At Lil’ Rascals Academy, we offer the Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program (V.P.K.). This Florida state-sponsored program offers free V.P.K. to 4- and 5-year olds who reside in the state of Florida. This program is designed to prepare children academically, socially, and emotionally to enter kindergarten. 

In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss why you should enroll your child in the V.P.K. program at Lil’ Rascals Academy. Continue reading to learn more.

Lil’ Rascals Academy has four locations in Davie, Pembroke Pines, Cooper City, and Weston. Each location offers our V.P.K. program as well as daycare, preschool, and after school programs. Contact us today to schedule a tour of our child care center.  

V.P.K. Prepares Your Child for Kindergarten

The V.P.K. program at Lil’ Rascals Academy is designed to help to prepare your child for kindergarten. We do this by working to enhance their pre-reading, pre-math, language, and social skills, as well as focusing on skills that cannot be taught from a book. We believe that preparing for the academic aspect of kindergarten is only a part of the battle. Our teachers also focus on helping your child to learn self-control, tolerance, kindness, honesty, responsibility, respect, and citizenship. 

Our V.P.K. Program Is Free

The state of Florida provides 4- and 5-year olds with free V.P.K., and that includes the program that we offer at Lil’ Rascals Academy. This pre-K program helps to prepare your child for success in kindergarten and is completely free for you. Your child must be 4-years old on or before September 1 to qualify for free enrollment. 

We Offer School-Year and Summer V.P.K. Program

At Lil’ Rascals Academy, we offer both a school-year program and a summer V.P.K. program. Our school-year V.P.K. includes 540 hours of instructional time and begins in August, while our summer V.P.K. program begins in June and includes 300 instructional hours. With two options, you can choose the V.P.K. program that works best for your family. 

We Offer a Free Five-Hour Program

At Lil’ Rascals Academy, we contribute an additional two hours each day to our V.P.K. program. We are the only school in Broward that offers a five-hour free V.P.K. program. We believe that children who attend V.P.K. are more likely to be successful in kindergarten and we would love to help your child realize that success, so we dedicate an extra two hours every day to teaching your child the skills they need for kindergarten.
