Gainesville Moms

A place for moms to connect

Hey guys--I just found out that there IS a VPK for the summer at Rising Star Academy (on Waldo Rd next to UF). You just need to go online to Early Learning Col. or go to the ELC and get the voucher for it. (VPK is free). They are doing sign ups now and this school is small which means there are not a ton of kids --I prefer a smaller situation. Bonita Williams is the director. Have a great summer!

I believe free VPK is available for either the summer or the fall, but families cannot receive the subsidy for both. Check to make sure signing up for summer won't disqualify you for the regular school year.program.
