At Westside “We strive to maintain a high-quality “hands on” learning experience for 4 year olds in our community” Voluntary Prekindergarten 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.
