2021-2022 VPK Registration

Schools are accepting VPK Eligibility Certificates from parents of students zoned for their school for VPK enrollment.  Due to COVID-19, please contact your zoned school to inquire if registrations will be held online or by appointment as some offices may be closed to the public.

Parents must pre-register online to receive their issued VPK Certificate of Eligibility via email at https://familyservices.floridaearlylearning.com.

Students will receive priority at their zoned school. If there are spaces available after all zoned children have been accepted, then students will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please Note: The maximum enrollment is 20 students per class as required by the State. If a school has reached the maximum enrollment, then request to be placed on their waiting list.

In order for a child to attend a full-day Title I/VPK program, they must reside in a Title I school attendance zone.
