VPK

VPK is a program to prepare all children for kindergarten. It addresses their academic knowledge, their social skills and their emotional development. As a team we will be very forward in how your child is preforming. We will set goals and have expectations. We will want you to be an active part in this preparation. 

 

This year will be a fun and exciting time for you and your child. There is a lot of work that goes into preparing a child for kindergarten. It is not the kindergarten you remember. Your child will be expected to know many things on their first day of school.  

View this quick clip with our Director, Gina Benson, about some tips for selecting a VPK program for your child.

 

 

 

 

 

We understand there are many VPK programs for you to choose from when selecting the best fit for your child. Milestones Learning Center’s program is unique in that we offer an accelerated learning path for those students who can already demonstrate knowledge of basic material such as colors, shapes, letters, and numbers and are ready to move forward.
