Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program Parents who have completed registration for their child are ahead of the ball. Parents must complete a face-to-face registration prior to having completely registered their child for the VPK Program. The on-line process is just a preliminary submission of data on the VPK Child. The start date for programs may be as early as August 8, 2013 in Walton County, and as early as August 19, 2013 in Okaloosa County. Many programs set start dates to coincide with the beginning of school in their respective School Districts. However, enrollment is continuous throughout the program year. A student may enroll after the program has begun.
Obtaining a VPK Eligibility Certificate
In order to be eligible for VPK services you must provide an official birth certificate or other approved documentation that verifies your child will be four years old on or before September 1, 2013 (for the School Year 2013-2014).

- Residential Rental Agreement/Receipt from rental payment
- Government documents (Current Florida driver's license, Florida identification cards, property tax assessment showing homestead exemption)
