Welcome to the Osceola Early Childhood Education website. We are committed to providing support, resources and encouragement for developmentally appropriate and child-centered practices in the early childhood classroom environment of our VPK centers.

The Voluntary Prekindergarten Education (VPK) Program is a FREE educational program created to prepare every four-year-old in Florida for kindergarten, and build the foundation for his or her educational success. Parents can enroll their child in the state's freeVPK education program that year OR wait until the following year when their child is five years old.

The VPK program offers each child an opportunity to perform better in school and throughout life by offering quality programs that include developmentally appropriate curricula with a focus on early literacy skills, developmental standards, accountability, substantial instruction periods, manageable class size, and qualified instructors.

Different approved providers in Florida communities offer the VPK Program. Parents can choose between private early learning providers and public school providers. Parents can contact their local early learning coalition (ELC) for a list of VPK provider profiles pursuant to 1002.53(5), F.S.

Parents can choose one of two VPK Program types. The School Year and Summer program types deliver classroom instruction and are available to all eligible students.
