VPK Information for Providers

2020-2021 VPK Flexible School Year Options

Private and Public School Providers


Flexible, innovative instructional options for delivering the 2020-2021 School Year VPK Program are available as an added feature to in-person instruction, but not a replacement. This flexibility will ensure:

VPK programs are open to enable learning to continue and allow parents to rejoin the workforce.

VPK parents have similar options to those available for K-12 parents, based on the School District’s FDOEapproved Plan for Reopening.

Structure safeguards are in place to encourage and shift families to in-person learning. 

Please keep in mind that in addition to flexible learning options, providers may also delay the start of their VPK programs to meet the needs of their families.

VPK Teacher’s Guide and Child Portfolio

The Department of Education has created a new teacher resource available to all Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) programs. The “What I Learned in VPK! Teacher’s Guide” and accompanying “Child Portfolio” are designed as a means for programs to communicate with parents about a child’s progress in meeting the VPK Education Standards by the end of the VPK experience. The “Teacher’s Guide” gives valuable information about how a teacher can complete a “Child Portfolio” for each child to give to parents at the end of VPK. These two documents can be viewed and printed using the links below.
