Quality preschool programs

Eastern Florida State College operates affordable child development programs at two campus locations, Cocoa and Melbourne, that provide quality educational preschool programs to children ages 15 months to 5 years old, based on space availability. All centers are open to the general community, EFSC students, alumni, faculty and staff. We provide state-funded Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) at both locations, and a state certified Kindergarten at the Melbourne Montessori School. All of our programs receive high VPK scores.

The primary goal of our centers is to provide a safe, respectful and enriching environment in which children can develop to their highest potential. Our program focuses on the uniqueness of each child and the development of the whole child, using the theories and techniques of child psychologists Jean Piaget and Erik Erikson. Qualified and degreed Eastern Florida State College teaching staff structure the learning environment to initiate creativity and social skills in a loving atmosphere.

We encourage parent involvement through our parent advisory committee, volunteering, fundraising and planning special events for children and families. EFSC students are also involved as part of the College’s educational program, so they can receive practical hands-on learning and teaching experiences.
