VPK Program in Riverview

When Riverview area families place their children in the voluntary pre-kindergarten (VPK) program at Discovery Point Symmes, they receive so much more than daycare. We provide children with an active environment where they can have fun and grow in countless ways while learning. We participate in Florida’s Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program so children throughout our community can have access to our educational child care. 

The VPK program at Discovery Point Symmes is geared towards Riverview area 4 and 5 year olds. Our instructors have been trained in early childhood education, which means they understand the developmental abilities of children this age. We will encourage your child’s natural desire to learn and explore by providing physical activity, cognitive stimulation, and social interaction. 

Discovery Point Symmes strives to:

  • Provide children with a nurturing environment that is like a second home
  • Work with children in a variety of ways to engage their individual learning needs
  • Inspire an eagerness to learn through the use of educational and active play
  • To be a place where children can focus on having fun while they learn

Objectives of Our VPK Program in Riverview

Discovery Point Symmes helps Riverview area children have an easier transition from preschool to kindergarten with our VPK program. We take a whole child approach to care so children can be successful in school and in life. 

Children grow and thrive in our program because:

  • We have children work together in small groups and as a whole class to encourage social skills
  • We support language development by providing music, dramatic play, and conversation
  • We teach self-help skills so children can develop personal safety and a sense of independence
  • We use outdoor play time and physical activity to help children develop their fine motor skills
  • We support cognitive growth through the use of science and math units and problem solving
  • We provide books, writing activities, and storytelling to improve literacy in children
