VPK in Land O’ Lakes
Discovery Point Terra Bella is pleased to participate in the state of Florida’s Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program (VPK). Children in Land O’ Lakes and throughout the community can access our outstanding program, regardless of parental income. We provide children an active, engaged, and fun environment that promotes a love of learning. We partner with the parents of our students so we can engage children in ways that spark their curiosity.
Children ages 4 and 5, throughout Land O’ Lakes and the surrounding areas, can benefit from the VPK program at Discovery Point Terra Bella. Our teachers have received training in early childhood education and they know how to provide developmentally appropriate curriculum to children. We feel children can benefit from plenty of physical activity, social and emotional support, and cognitive stimulation. This approach to educational child care helps children succeed.
When you choose our program we will:
- Use active and educational play to help your child feel eager to learn
- Be like a second home where your child feels nurtured and cared for
- Engage your child individually in order to meet their learning needs
- Provide an environment where your child can have fun while they learn
