Best Free VPK in TampaThis Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) class is for children who turn four by September 1st of the current school year. The dynamic teachers in these rooms enrich the pre-k program by providing lessons in science discovery and library time in addition to their regular academic curriculum. Playtime Learning Academy offers two options for its VPK program.
There is also an option for a free part time class that meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. These classrooms are beautiful, creative, and full of enthusiastic energy every day. These busy rooms are divided into centers similar to the Pre-K3 class, but with many new items for children to explore and manipulate. Every room has computers with internet access and educational software. Each also has a comfy reading area, a listening center, and a well-equipped art center.
The VPK curriculum is from the Houghton Mifflin professional preschool series. It is a thematic curriculum with beginner Spanish vocabulary and phrases infused throughout the core subject areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. We are very proud of how high our students perform and mature through the VPK program at Playtime Learning Academy.
