Seven Rivers Christian School offers preschool programs for children who are 3- or 4-years-old by September 1st and potty-trained. We participate in the Florida VPK program for 4-year-olds. Children are only eligible to participate in the VPK program the year they are 4-years-old on or before September 1st. Older students are accepted in the paid program.
Three-year-old classes meet half-days either 2 days/week (T,Th) or 3 days/week (M,W,F) from 8:30 AM until 11:45 AM. The option for extended care until 3:00 PM is available at an additional charge, billed monthly based on days attended.
Four-year-old classes meet either 3 full-days/week (M,W,F) from 8:30 AM until 3:00 PM or 5 half-days/week from 8:30 AM until 11:45 AM. The option for extended care until 3:00 PM is available at an additional charge, billed monthly based on days attended.
SRCS is a Gold Seal Accreditation school for the VPK program. All the teachers are veteran teachers, and they all have degrees and/or professional early childhood certification.
