Pre-K4/VPK

A Florida constitutional amendment created a program designed to prepare four-year-olds for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. The program allows a parent to enroll his or her eligible child (four years old by September 1 and residing in Florida) in a free VPK program. St. Paul Catholic School is a provider for the VPK program, allowing students to benefit from free state-supported education in the mornings.

The Pre-K4/VPK classroom is designed around the ability of the child to discover the world around them through play and guided instruction. Our center-based approach allows the child to imitate life through play in the kitchen, grocery, dress up, building, reading, writing, art, puzzles, transportation, and play-doh centers. STEMscopes is an approved Curriculum for the Florida VPK program and offers a hands-on approach to build skills in critical thinking accross the subject areas.

Center Activities Include:

Science, Engineering, Literacy, Math, Weather, World of Science, Observation, Writing, Art, Dramatic Play, Puppet, Color, Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Sensory Table, and Technology.

Areas of Study include:

Habitats, Objects in the Sky, Forces, Life Cycles, Properties of Matter, Food Sources, Caring for Our Earth, Sun’s Heat, Basic Needs, Food as Energy, Weather Patterns, and Five Senses.
