New Part-Time VPK Programs Available
Those students that turn 4 before September 1st are eligible to participate in our V.P.K. Program. This is a 3 hour a day State-funded initiative that provides a quality Prek-4 education; however, the majority of our students still maintain a full day schedule. B2L is licensed and our staff is trained to teach the standards set forth by the State of Florida. These objectives are proven to prepare all 4-year-old students academically and emotionally for the big step into Kindergarten: Emergent Literacy, Math, Scientific thinking, social studies, and language are all part of the daily Prek-4 routine.
As in all our programs, teachers design activities and experiences that lead students to master the objectives through an organized routine. Students interests are key in the selection of themes to explore in lesson plans. Students at this level also participate in free choice learning centers and have recess in the playground on a daily basis.
Throughout the day, teachers promote problem solving skills, critical thinking and socialization. The work habits, academic foundation, and self-confidence established in our 4-year-old program are essential for a successful transition into elementary school.
