Our beautiful, safe and loving infant room is the perfect environment to care for children from 3 months to 15 months. Teachers provide communication between home and school through daily reports. Age appropriate play, music, stories, movement and art activities are scheduled around naps and feedings. Our infants enjoy a dedicated outdoor play area which is shaded and enclosed. Formula and food are included in the tuition.
Their world is discovered through experiences. The classroom is a place for exploration and play. Each day the children are introduced to colors, shapes, numbers and letters through hands on activities designed to develop each child’s cognitive and physical skills. The children are offered opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills through hands-on involvement. Art, music and dancing are also used to embed new skills and knowledge, as well as for enjoyment and fun.
Print and language are integrated into every learning center and the children are offered many opportunities to experience social, emotional and physical growth through interactions with each other and their teachers. Math readiness, science, creative expression, literature and letter recognition are key components of the curriculum. The children are encouraged through experiences in and out of the classroom and their learning begins with awareness, discovery and inquiry.
During this important year children are encouraged to become critical thinkers and problem solvers as they grow socially and emotionally in a supportive atmosphere. Our print-rich environment provides the language, literacy, math, science and writing skills needed to be successful as they approach VPK. We utilize a thematic approach that values the interests of the children. We recognize that children learn best when they are highly interested in the subject matter and we value and incorporate the ideas our experienced teachers bring to their classroom.
Florida VPK has been developed to assure that every child has the strong educational foundation they need to be ready for Kindergarten. Early literacy skills are essential for children becoming successful readers and writers. The VPK curriculum must be developmentally appropriate and the class size should be small enough to allow children, their families and their teachers to build close relationships.
One World Preschools offers a VPK Program that is rich in language and literacy. We are a Gold Seal Quality Care Program which acknowledges our nationally recognized APPLE accreditation. Our high standards reflect quality in the level of care and supervision we bring to our children.
Free VPK provides 540 instructional hours per school year. We have extended the traditional 9.00am -12.00 day by one hour so that our VPK class will be served lunch followed by enrichment activities. Dismissal will be at 1:00pm.
Our Center is open at 7am and there is no additional charge for VPK children brought to Early Care between 7 and 9am. Breakfast will be provided for Early Care VPK children, again at no extra charge.

One World Preschools seeks to take the best from various approaches, to form curricula best suited to different ages, abilities and needs of individual children.
One World Preschools embraces the Reggio Emilia philosophy, allowing children to explore their world, learning through experiences – touching, moving, listening and observing, with endless opportunities to express themselves and share their thoughts and ideas. At the center of the Reggio Emilia philosophy is a belief in the natural development of children.
One World Preschools follows the Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies, providing a child centered approach based on self-directed activities, hands on learning and collaborative play, with children making creative choices and learning through their own experiences.
Minicamps are preschool care and education within summer, winter and spring holiday seasons. The same curricula and standard of care are provided during these periods.
All children, aged 6 weeks through first graders, are welcome in minicamps.
Minicamps are charged at a weekly or daily rate and attendance is more flexible than during term times.
