Step 1 - Apply for a VPK Certificate

This will require parents/guardians to complete an application and upload the following documents in PDF format:

  1. Proof of Florida residency (e.g. electric bill, current Florida driver's license, lease)

  2. Proof of child's age (e.g. birth certificate, passport)

Your child's Certificate of Eligibility will be emailed to you as soon as documents are verified. This may take up to 10 business days.

Visit the Parent Portal on the Coalition's website to begin the process of obtaining your VPK Certificate.
