Step 2.a.  CERTIFICATE OF ELIGIBILITY APPLICATION:  These certificates are issued on-line only through the Division of Early Learning.  Parents/Legal Guardians are required to turn in their signed Certificate of Eligibility (i.e. the voucher) before the start of the summer program by May 1, 2024. If you need assistance in applying for the voucher, please contact the Early Learning Coalition of Lake County at (352) 435-0566 or if you do not need assistance, please visit the Division of Early Learning website.   Please see the Certificate of Eligibility application process flow chart should you need step-by-step instructions.

Step 3.  REGISTER YOUR STUDENT FOR KINDERGARTEN:  Your student MUST be registered for Kindergarten BEFORE they will be able to start the program.  If you are unsure of the process, please contact the school where you student will be attending Kindergarten.**

Please visit "What documentation do I need to register with the school?" should you be uncertain regarding the required paperwork.   Again, your child will NOT be allowed to start the Summer 23-24 VPK Program without being registered in a Kindergarten Program.
