Florida’s Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education Standards

At its meeting on March 15, 2005, the State Board of Education adopted Child Performance Standards for the Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education Program.

The standards listed Here reflect the latest research on child development and developmentally appropriate practices for four-year-old children. Benchmarks in the domains of Language and Communication and Emergent Literacy further explain what Florida’s children should know and be able to do at the end of the VPK experience.
