Tanglewood Academy is a learning center in Pembroke Pines that is dedicated to fostering healthy early childhood development. Our highly trained staff members actively engage children in the learning process and invite parental involvement in our preschool. Our early learning center is pleased to offer a voluntary pre-k program, or VPK, intended for four-year-olds who are getting ready for kindergarten. VPK offers three-hour classes in the mornings during the week. Parents may choose to enroll their children in our enhancement program for after-hours day care. Children who did not participate in the VPK program the previous year and will be entering kindergarten in August are welcome to enroll in our full-day summer VPK program.
Voluntary pre-k supports children’s development by introducing them to a rich environment full of learning experiences. Early childhood education is the stepping stone toward later academic success. In VPK, children develop crucial pre-literacy and pre-math skills. They also work on their social skills during their interactions with their peers.
