School district to hold voluntary prekindergarten registration
The Voluntary Prekindergarten Program (VPK) is a strong way to get 4-year-olds ready for kindergarten and the rest of their time in public schools.
Osceola County parents with a child who reaches the age of four by Sept. 1, 2017, are invited to register him or her for the Osceola School District’s 2017-18 free VPK Program VPK, offers high-quality programs that include high academic standards, developmentally-appropriate curricula, manageable class sizes, and qualified teachers.
The Osceola Center for Early Learning will host a series of VPK Registration Roundups.  Parents must first start by getting a Certificate of Eligibility by logging on to https://vpkcp.floridaearlylearning.com. (If you do not have Internet access, help will be provided at registration.)
