Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) is a five day program, free for children who will be age four (4) by September 1, 2017 and will be entering Kindergarten in the fall 2018.  Your first step is to enroll with the Early Learning Coalition for your voucher.  For info on how to register at ELC click here.  Once you have your voucher, you can register for our program.

There are many reasons to choose SCEIC.  We have a low student to teacher ratio, so our VPK program has at least 2 teachers in each class, 3 in most.  That means each student will receive the individualized attention they need to succeed.  We follow the Early Learning Developmental Standards for four-year-olds. Our high quality program is designed to ensure your child has the social, emotional, and educational skills they need to succeed in elementary school. Our wrap-around care provides flexibility to families with two pick-up times available.
