VPK programs may be administered by public, private, and faith-based providers who meet the State eligibility requirements.
VPK providers determine their own program hours and days to meet the 540 or 300 hour requirement. For example, if a program is 180 days, it would offer 3 hours of instruction each day to meet the 540-hour School Year requirement. A provider could also choose to offer a 6 hour-per-day program for 90 days. Check with your VPK provider to determine which program is best for your child’s needs.
