Palmetto Bay Preschool is an A.P.P.L.E. accredited learning environment.
Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment (A.P.P.L.E.) is a voluntary accreditation
program available to members of F.A.C.C.M. (Florida Association of Child Care Management)
The accreditation process is an evaluation of the indicators of quality as reflected in each individual program.
All components of a program are examined including: Administration, classroom environment,
parent and community involvement, advocacy on behalf of children and child care, staffing
credentials, staff to child ratios, teacher/child interaction, literacy and curriculum.
In December 2004, Voluntary Pre Kindergarten (VPK) legislation was passed and signed into law.
This bill requires participating child care facilities and homes to maintain quality care accreditation and higher education
standards for staff. Voluntary Pre Kindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing
their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. By developing the skills children need to become strong readers and
students at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school.
Enroll your 4-year-old in PBP's VPK program today!
VPK classrooms offer high-quality programs that
include high literacy standards, developmentally appropriate curricula, manageable class sizes, and qualified teachers.
If you live in Florida and have a child who turns 4 years of age by September 1, your child is eligible for Florida's FREE VPK program.
Two programs are offered annually. The school-year program includes 540 hours of instructional time and begins in August. The summer
program consists of 300 instructional hours.
The benefits of VPK are vast and wonderful. Don't miss out on the opportunity to give your child an early start to learning.
We look forward to working with each child and parent. By working together, Palmetto Bay Preschool
can maintain it's status as an outstanding learning center in our community.
