Florida was one of the first states in the country to offer free prekindergarten to all 4-year-olds. Children must live in Florida and be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the current school year to be eligible. If their fourth birthday falls Feb. 2 through Sept. 1 in a calendar year, parents can postpone enrolling their child in VPK that year and wait until the following year when their child is 5.

Shingle Creek Elementary offers both regular and dual-language (English / Spanish), full day VPK as well as Summer VPK for 2018.

Parents can find more information at OCPS VPK.
