Lifelong Love of Learning

Our Florida state-funded Voluntary Prekindergarten program (VPK) fosters a lifelong love of learning.
We encourage:
  • Hands-on and interactive learning opportunities to encourage social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
  • Critical thinking challenges for support of language, literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts.
  • Guided discovery programs including play and creative movement.
We participate in Voluntary Prekindergarten offered by the Florida State Office of Early Learning.  We use the FrogStreet D.I.G. Program, a state approved, comprehensive prekindergarten curriculum in our VPK class. D.I.G is a core Pre-K program that develops the whole child, inspires big learning across all domains, and grows early learners into confident kindergarten-ready students. We enjoy studying God's word together through our Bible Curriculum:  Exploring God's Love.
