As a parent, we know it is important to understand what the Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program (VKRP) is and how it can make a difference for your child. VKRP is an initiative focused on building a more comprehensive understanding of school readiness and success. VKRP helps to support our understanding of school readiness in four key areas: literacy, mathematics, social skills, and self-regulation.
