  1. 1. PRESCHOOL & VPK SERVICES Melbourne & Palm Bay FL
  2. 2. PRESCHOOL & VPK SERVICES Melbourne and Palm Bay FL is one of the greatest places to raise a family. The South Brevard area has a number of young families looking for a great place to send their children to preschool or VPK. What’s the difference between VPK & Preschool?
  3. 3. WHAT IS PRESCHOOL? A preschool is a school for children who are too young for kindergarten, typically starting at age 2 or 3. The preschool experience teaches your child to socialize with peers and gives early exposure to oral language, letters, phonemes, words, math concepts, science and other important building blocks for early education. For working parents, preschool can also provide vital child care during the work day, either in conjunction with a nanny or by itself.
  4. 4. WHAT IS VPK? VPK stands for the Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program. If you live in Florida, and your child turns 4 four years of age by September 1, your child is eligible to participate in Florida's FREE Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) education program.  Benefits of early education and the VPK program  The most important growth and development in the brain happens by the age of five.  The early years are the learning years. A child’s ability to be attentive and to follow directions emerges in the early years. Structured early learning fosters these abilities for later success in school and in life.  Pre-K prepares children to be ready for school. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems once they enter school. They are also better prepared for Kindergarten, especially in the areas of pre-reading, pre-math and social skills.  Pre-K promotes a love of learning in children. Pre-K enhances what a child learns at home and instills a love of life-long learning.
