Pre-K Center in St. Johns, FL


The Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program at The Academy of Julington Creek offers four-year-olds the preparation they'll need to excel in kindergarten and beyond. Our Pre-K center in St Johns, FL, provides a fully accredited program conducted by experienced, talented teachers. As part of our comprehensive child care services, our Pre-K programs develop children's learning and social skills in our safe, state-of-the-art facility. Our lessons and activities use the acclaimed A Beka curriculum to ensure that the children at our center have all the necessary skills they'll need when they move forward into kindergarten.

Our VPK program is a stimulating early learning experience that helps children acquire the foundational skills necessary for being attentive readers and engaged students. As a locally owned center, we offer small class sizes and qualified instructors to help to ensure the success of each child.


Our VPK Program Prepares Four-Year-Olds for Classroom Success

Enrolling your child at our VPK center is an excellent way to encourage the appropriate development that results in academic success. We apply carefully planned schedules to ensure that each child receives the most benefit from our lessons, learning stations, and outdoor play activities. Our caring teachers help each child develop readiness for reading and mathematics while supporting individual and group exercises. This age-appropriate approach to learning equips children with the social skills and individual proficiency that are essential to later academic settings.

Our program familiarizes four-year-olds with what to expect in a classroom setting, how to pay attention and follow instructions, and other skills that will help them better retain the information they learn in kindergarten. While focusing on classroom readiness, we also reserve time to let our Pre-K students enjoy being young with free play and outdoor activities. All the while, we keep the safety and well-being of your children our top priority.
