Flagler County Adult Education is entering its eighth year of providing Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) to all eligible 4-year-old children in Flagler County.
VPK for the 2012-2013 school year begins on Aug. 16, with the instruction hours of 8:30-11:30 a.m. Extended day services are available for $50 per week. Pre-enrollment is ongoing at the Adult Education Early Learning Center.
VPK is offered at The Adult Education Early Learning Center of Excellence at Bunnell Elementary and The VPK Program at Indian Trails Middle School.
VPK is a state-funded program for all children who turn four on or before Sept. 1 of the upcoming school year. This program allows children to attend 540 hours of free classroom instruction through the school year to prepare them for kindergarten.
The VPK program must follow standards established by the Department of Education that focus on eight developmental domains: emergent literacy, social/emotional, fine/gross motor, physical health, language/communication, approaches to learning, mathematics and cognitive development plus a variety of skills which are proven to prepare preschool children for success in elementary school.
The Early Learning Center of Excellence and VPK Program at Indian Trails utilizes The Creative Curriculum which is supplemented with the Imagine It!, a specially designed multi-sensory curriculum, to provide age-appropriate activities that promote the foundation to reading skills and the love of learning.
Registration into the VPK program begins with obtaining a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) at the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties. You can pre-register for the COE online at www.elcfv.org or contact the coalition at 437-8236.
The Adult Education Early Learning Center of Excellence also provides quality care and education for children 6 weeks of age to 3 years. The Creative Curriculum is utilized to promote social/emotional, fine/gross motor, cognitive/intellectual and self-help skills. The program accepts vouchers from the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties (child care tuition assistance) and is licensed through the Department of Children and Families.
Flagler County Schools’ Adult and Community Education Department offers a wide variety of career training, recreational, academic, cultural, and community interest classes and programs to the residents of Flagler and surrounding counties. Flagler Technical Institute is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education and provides excellence in workforce education.
