2023-2024 Student Registration

VPK Registration Information


The Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program – or VPK – is a free prekindergarten program for 4 and 5-year-olds who reside in Florida. Participating children must be 4 years of age on or before September 1. Parents can enroll their child in the state’s free, voluntary prekindergarten (VPK) education program that year or wait until the following year when their child is 5. 

Here at John I. Smith K-8 Center, we have two classes for VPK. Each class has one primary teacher, one paraprofessional, and a total of 20 students.

Registration for VPK is announced by the district only.
