The state will pay for 540 VPK instructional hours for the 2021-2022 school year. Berean operates VPK, which is considered “free” to the parent who submits the VPK Certificate of Eligibility. We also offer an Extended Child Development program which operates from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., excluding the VPK hours.
NOTE: Berean’s VPK attendance policy – Children must attend at least 80% of the VPK instructional hours to maintain their enrollment.
The following options are available for children to enroll in Berean’s VPK program:
