Voluntary Pre Kindergarten (VPK) is a free, school-readiness program offered to children who reside in the state of Florida. Children must be 4 years old by September 1st of the new school year. For more information about VPK, visit www.elc-ow.org
To obtain a VPK certificate:
- Visit elc-ow.org
- Under the “Parents” tab, select Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten
- Click on the red button labeled “Online VPK Registration”
- Create an account in the family portal
- Click on “Create a new VPK application”
Once you submit your application with required documentation, you will receive a series of emails notifying you of the status of your VPK application. Once it has been approved, you will log in to the family portal and download/print the certificate (not application). You must submit this document to us for your child’s VPK funding.
