If this is the first time you are starting to search for VPK, then we know it can be overwhelming. After all, you’ll pass many different daycares and preschools advertising they offer VPK. So how can you choose which is right for you?
Here are some things to look for when searching for the best VPK in Coconut Grove, South Miami, Pinecrest, FL, Coral Gables and surrounding areas.
- Accepts the state voucher. This is not just about getting a discount on a VPK program but also means the program follows the state requirements, including two assessments throughout the year.
- Has optional programs. Optional programs are an excellent way for your little one to start an introduction to different enrichment programs such as yoga, art, soccer, Spanish or cooking. And, you’ll get your family time on evenings and weekends back as these activities happen during the school day.
- Great teachers. Be sure to ask if the teachers have training in early childhood education and take continuing education. Also, ask about the teachers’ experience and how long they have been at the school.
- Extended day options. VPK covers a certain number of hours, but just because you need daycare-type coverage doesn’t mean you won’t be able to take advantage of VPK programs. Extended day options may be available. But always check that the hours work for your schedule.
