Posted on 02/12/2019

Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) offers a pre-kindergarten program for children who will be 4 years old on or before Sept. 30, and who meet eligibility criteria based on the Virginia Preschool Initiative. The full-day program is offered at no cost to families and serves children who are exposed to high-risk factors and situations that are likely to have an adverse impact on their development.

Parents/guardians interested in applying for the 2019-20 school year must attend one of the division’s eligibility application sessions conducted on select dates through April. In order to be seen at the screening, applicants are required to bring a completed application and various supporting documents such as proof of residency, child’s birth certificate and income statements, among others. The VBPCS pre-kindergarten webpage includes a detailed list of required documents as well as a link to the application and listing of the 26 elementary schools that offer the program. The application also may be requested at any VBCPS elementary school.
