4 Year Old Class Options
Both K-4 Options may utilize Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)


  • VPK is a free state-supported educational program offered to all 4-year olds in Florida.

  • St. Paul’s Christian School became a VPK provider beginning in the 2006-2007 school year.

  • All students who will be 4 years old on or before September 1 are eligible to enroll at our school for a free, quality preschool educational program.

  • Parents must first obtain a certificate of eligibility through the Early Learning Coalition before enrolling at our school.  This can be done on the ELC website. Get started by clicking here!  Proof of residency and your child’s birth certificate are required at this meeting.

  • St. Paul’s VPK program is completely free.  Tuition is paid by the State and there are no registration fees or other charges.

  • Children participating in the VPK program are required to maintain at least 80% attendance (i.e. student must attend 16 days in a 20-day month).  In situations where the child exceeds the permissible number of absences, the parent(s) must provide an explanation in writing.

  • St. Paul’s curriculum is a play-based curriculum Beyond Centers and Circle Time that is utilized in all of our preschool classes.  All of the learning domains and readiness skills for Kindergarten are covered in our 4-year old program.


  • Parents not wishing to utilize the VPK program may register their child for one of our classes at the current tuition rate.

  • Registration is completed at our school and is subject to a registration fee.

  • VPK attendance policies do not apply.

  • The same curriculum is utilized in our non-VPK classes as is used in our VPK classes.
