VPK Curriculum & Performance Standards

Each provider may select or design the curriculum that the provider or school uses to implement the Voluntary PreKindergarten Education Program. The curriculum must be developmentally appropriate and must:

1. Be designed to prepare a student for early literacy.

2. Enhance the age-appropriate progress of students in attaining the VPK Performance Standards

3. Prepare students to be ready for kindergarten based upon the statewide kindergarten screening.*

*Private prekindergarten providers and public schools that are placed on probation due to inadequate kindergarten screening scores will be required to use an approved curriculum to be determined by the State.
