Voluntary Pre-K: A child must be four years old on or before September 1st.

At Ocean Palms Elementary we offer a 5-day program during the school year.  Our VPK program consists of classes which blend 4 VPK students and up to 14 Pre-K students who have qualified needs for services through our ESE program.  Each classroom will have a highly qualified teacher holding a bachelor’s degree in the areas of early childhood and disabilities; and one paraprofessional.

VPK students are positive role models for their classmates. We encourage our VPK students to be leaders as they prepare for Kindergarten. Your child will become acclimated to the “big” public school setting, and they will transition quickly into Kindergarten.

Please note, Transportation is not provided and Extended Day Before and Aftercare is not offered to VPK students.

  • Hours: 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. M,T,TH,F and 8:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays. 
  • 2022-2023 Fees:  $80.00 per week unless the family qualifies for free or reduced fee based on income.

2022-2023 – VPK Full Day School Year Program  (All seats have been filled for the 2022-2023 school year.) 

UPDATE:  3/16/2022 – We had an overwhelming number of children on our list!  Our students have been selected and the families have been contacted.  However, your child’s name will be moved over to our active wait list in the event a seat opens in the future.  If have not added your child’s name to our wait list, please email me the following information:

  • Your child’s first and last name,
  • Your child’s gender,
  • Which school is your child zoned for, upon completion of the VPK Program  (you do not need to be zoned for OPE to be eligible).
