VPK/PreK Registration

Apply for the VPK/PreK Lottery

The process for applying for our preschool programs has changed for this coming school year. We have been informed by the provider that we can now conduct a lottery and also give priority to siblings of currently enrolled students (they also need to be returning in the fall). No more camping out on the sidewalk for days and nights. Aren’t we all relieved!

Please download and fill out the VPK/PreK application lottery registration form and email it to Maria Acuna at maria.acuna@imagineschools.org or bring the completed form to the school.

Register your Child for VPK

Please use the following steps listed below to assist with VPK registration. IMPORTANT: You first need to be picked from the lottery process in order to register for our PreK/VPK.

Once you are notified that you have been selected (either through sibling priority or getting pulled in the lottery), you will need the voucher and health documents in order to register. Please note: the number of spots for VPK only (half day) are limited. Most of the seats are for VPK with extended day.

[ The PreK/VPK application window will be open from March 5th – March 18th only! ]

Step 1

Log on to www.elcbroward.org and click on the link that says: Apply for VPK.

Step 2

Fill in the information to create a Family Portal account. After submitting the registration form, you will receive an email containing an account verification link to activate your account.

NOTE: You will not be able to log on and submit an application until you verify your account information. When you created your account, you received an email with your account information. If you no longer have the email with the verification link, re-enter your user name and password and you will receive a new verification email.

Step 3

Find and be ready to scan a COPY of the following:

  • Proof of Florida Residence
  • Proof of Child’s Age –

You will not be able to submit the application without uploading all required documents, so have an electronic copy of the required documentation available when beginning the application process. The following is a list of acceptable electronic formats: .BMP, .TIFF, .PDF, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, .DOC, .DOCX, .TXT.

You can close your application at any time and the information you entered will be saved. When you return to complete this application, you need to log on as a returning user. If you want to apply for more than one child, you will be able to do so after you submit the first application.

Step 4

Once you receive your voucher, print out two copies and bring it along with your medical forms Physical form 680 and DH3040 (blue and yellow) at the time of registration.

Entrance into our VPK/PreK/Extended day program does not guarantee entrance into the Kindergarten class the following year. You will be placed on a priority list and entrance is determined by how many spaces are available in Kindergarten for that school year.
