Prepare Your Child for School with Our VPK in Jacksonville

Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten, or VPK, is a program that prepares 4 year olds for entry to school. In addition to teaching the child valuable academic skills, VPK helps children become familiar with the classroom setting. They learn how to sit and listen quietly at the appropriate time, how to raise their hands and wait their turn before talking, and how to follow the teacher's directions. Learning these skills in Pre K helps them be better prepared to absorb the information they will be taught in kindergarten.

High Quality Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program in Jacksonville

When choosing a VPK provider for your child, it's important to remember that not every provider is the same. Daycare and early childhood education are different things. Teaching the children in a way that will stick with them is a skill that is best left to qualified educational professionals. Our program exceeds the standards set by the state of Florida for VPK providers. Deerwood Academy educators meet the highest state standards in order to teach children at this critical stage in their learning development. Our instructors have degrees in childhood education and experience managing the classroom. We also ensure that our classroom sizes are kept small, in keeping with the ratio mandated by the state.
