Application Process

Parents will complete the online application on behalf of their student.
In April 2020 parents who have applied will receive a letter in the mail from the PreK office. This letter will inform the parent that their child has been accepted at a school or placed on a wait list. The letter for the children that have been accepted will have a date for registration to begin and a list of documents you will need to have.


School zones:
Each public school has a designated attendance zone. Due to space limitations, children living in the school's attendance zone will be placed first. Out of zone requests will be placed as space becomes available at a later time.

Florida law specifies that each parent is responsible for the transportation of his/her child to and from the VPK program. However, there is limited transportation for current routes, if there is available space at regular school bus stops during the regular school times. No special transportation arrangements are available due to lack of state funding.

VPK program start/end times may vary by school.
