About the Virginia Preschool Initiative

  • The Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) prepares children for kindergarten and makes sure they have the basic requirements to get off to a good start when they begin kindergarten.  VPI understands that foundational learning is established in the early years; the program was developed to support and guide four year olds through specific active learning experiences before they go to school.

    As a program that has been around for 16 years, we value the Virginia Foundations of Learning in our classrooms, ensuring that children get a first class education.  VPI has an open door policy and we expect our parents to use it.  Our children will be encouraged to think and learn in ways that are fun and exciting, including our Home Learning Activities, field trips, and much more.  As your child’s abilities grow, so will the activities change to teach new ideas and skills.
