Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten

Collierville Schools is in the process of applying for the 

Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program. 

The status of our application will be confirmed by the State of Tennessee at the end of April.

Please continue to check back for updated information regarding the VPK program.

 

What is Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten?

Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) is an educational program that school districts may apply for on an annual basis and is funded by state and local funds. If a school district is awarded the funding, the school district may implement a Voluntary Pre-K classroom within an existing school.

The purpose of the program is to provide four-year-old children identified as being educationally and economically at-risk with access to a quality educational environment, in effort to prepare them for future educational success. The program is of no cost to parents/guardians.

  

What is the eligibility to participate in the Voluntary Pre-K program?

Student admission into the Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) program is determined by income eligibility, as well as a screening process. Please see the attached income guidelines. Other factors to be considered are:   

  • The student’s permanent residence must be within the Town of Collierville.
  • Children must be four years old by August 15, 2018.
  • No child who is eligible for Kindergarten (five years of age on or before August 15, 2018) may be enrolled in the VPK program.
  • Special services ( i.e. speech, other disabilities, language)
