Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK): Aged Four
At World Class Academy, fun and learning go hand-in-hand. Our credentialed, experienced, and loving staff have a shared goal of motivating the children to find love in learning new things. Our teachers will help guide your child with strong Christian values towards a brighter future.
The WCA Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program (VPK) is a state of Florida program. A Creative Curriculum is utilized as our main curriculum and it is supplemented by Learn Every Day. An additional language component is used in our VPK classes called Nemours BrightStart. All curriculums are based on exploration and hands-on learning activities. Your child will expand their language skills and gain knowledge while exploring studies such as Simple Machines; Tree Study; and Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle which will support their innate desire to learn and explore with enthusiasm. We are firm believers that the love children have for learning creates a strong basis for future success in life.
Our VPK students enjoy activities including Music & Movement, art, science experiments, and outdoor exploration. There is intentional focus placed on your child’s social & emotional development, math concepts, and language development. As in all of our World Class Academy programs, VPK students learn in small groups. Children are able to choose their interest areas and play cooperatively with their peers. This gives them the opportunity to learn to manage their conflicts by the use of language skills and promotes healthy interaction with their friends and classmates. By the time your child finishes this program, they will be well prepared to transition into kindergarten having acquired all the base skills necessary.
Here’s an example of a daily schedule for our VPK Program classes:
- Breakfast with social time
- Manipulative time
- Circle time with pledge, prayers, and good morning song at 9:00 AM
- Small group learning centers
- Outdoor play and exploration
- Diapering and handwashing
- Nap/quiet time
- Afternoon devoted to reinforcing what was learned in the morning
- Another outdoor play and exploration time
We host weekly small group swim lessons and bi-weekly Happy Feet Soccer & Amazing Athletes.
Something unique to our VPK program is that we invite community helpers in for an enriching learning experience for our students. Community helpers may include dentists, firemen, policemen, etc. Parents are always welcome to participate by coming in to share their heritage or profession with us. Every year, the VPK program also gets to visit the North County Senior Program Center.
For your child to be accepted into the VPK program physical and immunization forms are required. Your child must also be 4 years of age by September 1st, potty trained, and able to feed themselves. Please come in for a visit by scheduling a tour.
