Voluntary prekindergarten (VPK) is a publicly funded prekindergarten program that prepares children for success as they enter kindergarten the following year. The funding allows school districts and charter schools with Minnesota Department of Education-recognized early learning programs, to incorporate a VPK program into their E-12 system as a new grade level. Voluntary Prekindergarten is a program for children age 4. Students must be 4 years old before September 1st of the upcoming school year.
