PRE-KINDERGARTEN / VPK
Our VPK class, ages 4-5 years, provides a supportive, child-centered learning environment.
Pre-K is the foundation for building a love of learning and getting the students excited about school! Our classes promote lifelong independence, and social skills. Our program incorporates hands on learning that encourage creativity and discovery. Enrichments programs such as Spanish and music that pique interest in languages and the arts, and a warm loving environment that builds confidence and trust between the teacher and student. Encouragement, guidance and acceptance are all a part of what make our Pre-K (VPK) program different.
Our Pre-K program offers Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK is a state funded program that helps subsidize and offset the cost of early education in Florida). Island Prep has the most attendance options in town allowing us to meet the needs of start times and work schedules of all our families.
