VPK Readiness Success Is A Collaborative Effort
“Jacksonville's VPK providers and our community partners deserve praise for the collaborative achievement we have made in our city to ensure educational success for our children.
Once again we have seen the difference a quality early education can make in the lives of Jacksonville’s youngest citizens and how it equips the children of Duval County with the tools they need to succeed in school.”
— Susan Main, ELC of Duval, Executive Director
