VPK, which stands for voluntary pre-Kindergarten, is an important part of your child’s development and school readiness. Bartram Academy is proud to be a VPK school in St. Johns, FL. In Florida, families are offered free VPK for all four and five-year-olds of age on or before September 1 of the current school year. This is a wonderful opportunity to give your child or children a mental and social boost before enrolling them in school.
We offer several different VPK programs. We offer both full time programs and part time programs.
Our full time program is Monday-Friday full days. The VPK instructional hours are from 9am-12pm (the VPK voucher assists with these hours). Parents will be responsible for the wrap care tuition. We also offer full time Monday-Friday 9am-12pm only, where parents will choose 2 or 3 days to add wrap care and will be responsible for the wrap care tuition.
Our part time programs are Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday only. The M/W/F program is from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and our T/R program is from 8:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m. (These are our only ‘free with voucher’ options) Parents may choose to add wrap care and are responsible for the wrap care tuition.
Children of all backgrounds benefit from VPK. Contact us to ask about our quality programs and what they can do for your child.
