Voluntary Prekindergarten

VPK Curriculum

Each VPK provider's curriculum must be developmentally appropriate, designed to prepare a student for early literacy, enhance age-appropriate student progress in attaining state-adopted performance standards, and prepare students to be ready for kindergarten based on the statewide kindergarten screening as described in Section 1002.67(2)(b), Florida Statutes. VPK providers may select or design the curriculum for their classrooms, unless they are on probation as a result of their kindergarten readiness rates falling below the minimum rate.

Legislation implementing the VPK Education Program requires private providers and public schools that have been placed on probation as a result of their kindergarten readiness rates falling below the minimum rate to use approved curricula.
