The Best VPK in Jacksonville

TCA is proud to have the largest VPK program in Duval County.

What is VPK?

Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is Florida's FREE prekindergarten program for all 4-year-olds regardless of family income. VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language, and social skills. Children who complete a quality VPK program arrive at Kindergarten better prepared than those who do not attend a prekindergarten program. VPK is a great way for your child to experience early classroom learning in a fun, safe, and Christian environment.
