Registration Opening for Volusia County Schools’ Summer VPK


It’s not too early to start thinking about summer VPK programs. The School District of Volusia County will provide a free Voluntary Prekindergarten Program this summer for families of incoming kindergartners who have not taken advantage of the state’s free Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Program.  Studies have shown that students who attend VPK generally do significantly better in kindergarten than students who did not participate in VPK.

Registration takes place at the student’s home zoned school during early registration between the hours 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tues., March 21; Thurs., March 23; and Tues. April 11.  The following sites may be selected during registration: Citrus Grove (DeLand), Edgewater Public (Edgewater), Friendship (Deltona), Palm Terrace (Daytona Beach) and Sweetwater (Port Orange) elementary schools.

The program will operate 4-days per week, generally Monday through Thursday, beginning Mon., June 5, to Thurs., July 27.  School hours are scheduled for 7:37 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  Although breakfast and lunch are served free to all children, transportation is not provided.  To participate, a child must:
  • ​be 5 years-old on or before September 1, 2017;
  • be a resident of Volusia County; and
  • have a current, valid summer 2017 Certificate of Eligibility from the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties – (386) 323-2400, (386) 736-5010 or 
​For more information, call (386) 734-7190, 255-6475, 427-5223 or 860-3322, extension 33210 or 33214, or visit the school district’s website at​.  Click on the “Parents” icon.  Once there, click on “Programs” in the Toolbox, and then select “Pre-K (VPK).”  “Summer VPK” is listed in the menu on the left.
