We currently have two VPK spots available. These spots are first come, first serve. Please come by to take a tour of our school and to complete a wait list application for all other ages. There is a $30.00 (non-refundable) fee to be placed on the wait list. Winter Park Day Nursery accepts children ages 6 weeks-5 years old. Visit the Fee Schedule for details on tuition and fees. In accordance with National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) standards, Winter Park Day Nursery employs one teacher for every four infants, five one-year-old students, six two-year-old students and one teacher for every nine three-year-old students. This ratio exceeds the state standard of one teacher for every 11 two-year olds and one teacher for every 15 three year olds. Winter Park Day Nursery is a certified Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) provider. VPK is a state-funded program that provides pre-kindergarten education for four-year-olds. Children must be four by September 1 to qualify. The Florida Department of Education funds 540 hours in our morning VPK program. Winter Park Day Nursery gives our VPK students and additional hour each day to allow our children to have a nutritious breakfast and hot lunch at no additional charge. Class size is limited to ten children per teacher. Lead teachers are required by the state to have a CDA. There is no charge to parents for this program. Winter Park Day Nursery also offers extended day care with fees based on income.
It is not necessary to schedule a tour. You’re welcome to stop by anytime between 7:00AM to 6:00PM, Monday through Friday. We do, however, recommend coming between 8:00AM to 11:00AM and 2:30PM-5:00PM because the children nap from 12:15PM-2:15PM.
