Voluntary Prekindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. By developing the skills children need to become strong readers and students at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school and life. Bugaboos VPK classroom offers a high-quality program including; high literacy standards, developmentally appropriate curricula, manageable class size, and qualified teachers. 

If you live in Florida and have a child who turns 4 years of age by September 1, your child is eligible for Florida’s FREE VPK program.  The school-year program includes 540 hours of instructional time and begins in September.  Bugaboos' students will spend four hours each day learning while having fun.  

The most important objectives of the VPK program are; 

  1. Recognize and identify the letters of the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase as well as the sounds each letter makes in any order.

  2. Recognize and write numbers from 1 through 20.

  4. Identify colors and find examples in the classroom.

  5. Learning how to identify rhyming words and compound words.

  6. Learn the different parts of a book.
