In 2005 the Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment to ensure the availability of free quality pre-kindergarten for all four years olds. The state developed a 180 day program to insure that all children who turned 4 years old by September 1st have the opportunity to participate in a free 3 hour per day (540 hours) program that will help them be socially and academically ready to enter kindergarten the following school year.
Sunflower Educare Center is a Certified VPK Provider with a “Gold Seal” of Approval given by the State of Florida. We offer the school year VPK program as enrichment to our outstanding instructional program. The program is offered at varying times to accommodate your schedule. The all-day, 300 hour, summer VPK program is offered as well.
The State of Florida authorizes us as one of the few centers in our county to issue VPK Certificates of Eligibility directly to parents. The following information is required to obtain a certificate:
*Child’s original birth certificate (Must be 4 years old by September 1st)
*Child’s Social Security Card (if available)
*Parent’s proof of Residency
*Registering parent’s driver’s license or photo ID
