Children love to learn. ABCs, numbers, and shapes: these lessons are the foundation – the building blocks – on which students will continue to learn and grow in their education, and it is the belief of the state of Florida that this foundational education should be made available to any and all young students.
VPK – Free Tampa Preschool
That is why the VPK, or voluntary pre-kindergarten program, was created. Tampa VPK makes preschool for 4 year olds classes available for all children, at no cost and with no restrictions. The VPK program gives every child the opportunity to learn and prepare for kindergarten classes and beyond. VPK is completely funded by the state of Florida.
Hillsdale Christian Academy is proud to be a Tampa VPK provider. Our Tampa preschool has a great reputation and is a vibrant, safe place for our students. Through the VPK program, our preschool classes are free to any 4 year old student from 8am to 11am. In order to register, a student’s caregiver simply needs to provide proof of Florida residency and proof of the student’s age. The registration process is very simple – we at Hillsdale will work with you to complete the process.
Hillsdale Christian Academy also offers a “wrap-around care” program. We know that weekdays are busy and that children may need additional care after the VPK hours have ended. From 11am to 6pm, children may remain at Hillsdale. However, our wrap-around care is subject to a tuition fee.
Many families have taken advantage of our wonderful Tampa preschool and Tampa VPK program. It’s a great opportunity for children to begin their education in a faith-based, safe and friendly environment. All of our staff are trained and certified and give the utmost care to our students. After the preschool year has ended, many students return to Hillsdale for Kindergarten and beyond. Our Christian school is a great place to learn and grow, and we are happy to provide free education to our 4 year old students through the VPK program.
