Early Childhood

VPK is designed to prepare 4-year-olds for kindergarten to help build the foundation for their educational success. Our program provides a play-base learning experience infused with Catholic values that support the development of early literacy, executive functioning, and social emotional skills.

According to the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener, children who participate in VPK are better prepared for success in school.
