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.

Later Gators is an aftercare option for our VPK students. Later Gators is offered on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 1:15 - 2:45 p.m.  (First day 8/10, Last day 5/17) 

During this time the “Later Gators” may walk outside & explore the gardens, eat an afternoon snack (parents provide), listen to a story, free play with friends and engage in a variety of enrichment experiences (No Naps). Parents must pick up their child promptly at 2:45 p.m. Parents must provide an afternoon snack.

The cost of Later Gators is $12.50 per day and is charged to your FACTS account. If you’d like to save 10% (and enjoy your first day free) you can pre-pay for the year at the rate of $850 (saving $97.50!).
