    I'll give you the info I have...which isn't much.

    I know to teach VPK in an elementary school in our county, you need your bachelors degree. However, In a private center it is different. I will be teaching a new VPK class in the fall at the center where I work, I have my AAS in Early Childhood Education and my CDA, but I don't know what the requirement is.

    I can ask my director, it will be Monday before I find out.

    I asked the assistant director yesterday, she said just a cda was required (she thought)...but she didn't sound too sure.

    Sorry, not much help

    We are just starting VPK in our center this year. I haven't been on here in quite awhile, sorry for not responding sooner!!!

    Requirements are:
    CDA and Level 2 Background Screen...which is, local, FDLE, Good Moral Conduct, and FBI

    The aid is not required to have their CDA, but is required to complete the 45 hours and 5 hours in early literacy for VPK and hold their Level 2 Screen.

    HTH!
