SRCS offers preschool programs for children who are 3- or 4-years-old by September 1 and fully potty-trained. We participate in the Florida VPK program for 4-year-olds. Children are eligible to participate in the VPK program the school year they are 4-years-old on September 1. Children whose birthday falls between February 2 and September 1 may delay VPK enrollment until the following year. Only one year of VPK instruction is funded by the State. Options for extended care are available at an additional charge, billed monthly based on days attended.
In order to take advantage of the VPK funding, you must complete the Seven Rivers Christian Preschool application and apply for a VPK Certificate of Eligibility through the Office of Early Learning. You will be required to provide your child's proof of age (age 4 on or before September 1) and your proof of residency. For more information about the Florida VPK program, click here.
Return your fully-completed application to the preschool office along with the following items:
- Birth Certificate (a copy of the student's original birth certificate issued by the Bureau of Vital Statistics)
- Immunization Records: HRS Form 3040 and HRS Form 680
- Signed Preschool Financial Obligations Contract
- Application Fee, if applicable (non-refundable)
- Certificate of Eligibility from the Office of Early Learning (VPK students only)
Students are placed on the appropriate class list once all payments and required documents are received. Parents will be notified if their student has been placed on a waiting list. Accepted students will receive a welcome letter from their teacher about one week before school begins in the fall. Students and parents will be invited to meet their classmates and teacher at the back-to-school drop-by event held before the first day of school.
