The VPK program is one way San Juan del Rio makes Catholic education affordable to our littlest angels. We offer free VPK for all children who turn four years old by September 1 and reside in Florida. Our program begins at 7:55a.m. and concludes at 11:40a.m. The children are engaged in hands-on, developmentally appropriate learning centers. They participate in weekly themes centered on critical thinking and problem solving activities. The students also develop their fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional skills, as well as, grow in their love and understanding of Jesus. Our program has been awarded the Gold Seal of Accreditation, and received the 2013 Gift of Service Award, as well as the 2013 Shining Stars Award.

Sheri Bless is the director of our Early Childhood program. She has been teaching in the early childhood setting for the past 19 years. We have Florida Certified Early Childhood teachers in each classroom.This very talented team works hard to provide a strong, faith-based education for all the students entrusted to their care.
