Inaugural VPK Class to Graduate High School

April 17, 2019



This year marks an incredible milestone in VPK history.  The first ever VPK class from 2005 is ready to graduate high school. 

Since 2005, more than two million children in Florida have attended VPK.  In Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, more than 280,000 children have attended VPK.

We are celebrating this achievement by launching the VPK Glow Up Challenge.


Please post images on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook comparing your child in VPK (in 2005) and now as a High School graduate.  We have created a newspaper image for you to use (click here to download it).

In the post please:

  • Include these hashtags: #vpkglowup and #elcmdm
  • Show off! Let everyone know what college your child will attend or any other future plans

The Early Learning Coalition will like, comment and/or re-post to help spread the word!


Please reach out to the parents of the 2005 VPK class to let them know about the challenge and encourage them to participate.

Let’s show the huge impact VPK has had on our kids!
