The VPK Learning Center Activities included with this guide are aligned with the Language, Communication and Emergent Literacy Domain within the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year-Olds (2011). These standards and associated benchmarks were themselves developed based on the best available research evidence about the important skills that preschool children should know and be able to demonstrate to be ready for kindergarten by the end of the preschool period.
