A LETTER FROM OUR VPK DIRECTOR, VINA ESCOBAR
Thank you for considering our preschool!
City of Life Christian Academy's Daycare, Preschool, and VPK is a place where students can feel safe and loved while learning and having fun! Students enjoy a family atmosphere where they are encouraged to develop a Christ-centered character and live in joy and peace, celebrating who God made them to be. Our VPK graduates score at or above statewide results on the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS), and are academically prepared for Kindergarten.
Free VPK Vouchers can be obtained at http://www.floridaearlylearning.com/vpk.
