Even though VPK is completely voluntary, and your child doesn’t have to enroll in it, there are certain circumstances in which you would want to enroll your child into a VPK program in the Niceville area.
Build a Strong Foundation for Your Child
Do you have high hopes and aspirations for your child and their future success? Perhaps you want them to attend an Ivy school in the future and you want to set them up for a brilliant future from the get-go?
You might see that your child is smarter than others around them and can already see their bright potential at 4 years old. You might also know that your child has a huge potential for success, but they are a little lazy about it or don’t have the basics down yet.
Either way, a VPK program in the Niceville area will get their foundations set up exactly right so they can go into kindergarten and elementary school without falling behind or feeling lost.
Build Excitement about Learning and Joy for School
It’s easy for a child to be excited about playing with their toys or watching cartoons on Netflix, but they might shirk any task that seems arduous or requires mental strain. Of course, they are still young, but good habits if established at an early age will stick with them throughout their life.
Make sure you read your provider’s policy about attendance carefully. They usually have strict guidelines about instructional hours, tardiness, and more, to ensure that your child is building good habits and isn’t allowed to slack off.
An Early Learning Coalition Determines Eligibility
It’s quite easy to determine whether your child is eligible for a VPK program or not. Eligibility is determined by your child’s birth date and when you apply for VPK through a Family Portal account, a birth date will be asked for.
In addition, there will be a wait for 3 business days after you put in your application. This is because an early learning coalition determines your child’s eligibility and sends you a Certificate of Eligibility thereafter. This certificate is what you provide to your VPK program provider.
Each child is eligible to attend VPK only once and you can postpone your child’s enrollment into VPK by logging into the Family Portal.
