The Adult Education Early Learning Center of Excellence

at Bunnell Elementary School & Flagler VPK at Indian Trails
 

Flagler County Adult Education provides Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) to all eligible 4-year old children in Flagler County.   VPK is offered at The Adult Education Early Learning Center of Excellence at Bunnell Elementary and The VPK Program at Indian Trails Middle School.

For those who may not be familiar with VPK, this is a state funded program for all children who turn four on or before September 1st of the upcoming school year.  This program allows children to attend 540 hours of free classroom instruction through the school year to prepare them for Kindergarten.  The VPK program must follow standards established by the Department of Education that focus on eight developmental domains: emergent literacy, social/emotional, fine/gross motor, physical health, language/communication, approaches to learning, mathematics and cognitive development plus a variety of skills which are proven to prepare preschool children for success in elementary school.  The Early Learning Center of Excellence and VPK Program at Indian Trails utilizes The Creative Curriculum which is supplemented with the Imagine It!, a specially designed multi-sensory curriculum, to provide age-appropriate activities that promote the foundation to reading skills and the love of learning. 

Registration into the VPK program begins with obtaining a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) at the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties.  You can pre-register for the COE on-line at www.elcfv.org or contact the Coalition at 386-437-8236. 

VPK for the 2011-2012 school year begins on August 22, 2011 with the instruction hours of 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  Extended day services are available for $50.00 per week.  Pre-enrollment is ongoing at the Adult Education Early Learning Center.        

The Adult Education Early Learning Center of Excellence also provides quality care and education for children 6-weeks of age to 3-years of age.  The Creative Curriculum is utilized to promote social/emotional, fine/gross motor, cognitive/intellectual and self-help skills.   The program accepts vouchers from the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties (child care tuition assistance) and is licensed through the Department of Children and Families (license #C12FL0003).

Flagler VPK!  A program based on standards and traditions filled with innovations and most importantly fun!  If you would like more information about our programs please contact Abra Seay at 386-437-7584.
