This laboratory preschool was established in 1977 in conjunction with the Suncoast Technical College Early Childhood Education program, which prepares high school and adult students to work in preschool settings. The training program meets all Florida Department of Children and Families and Sarasota County Child Care training requirements.

Full-time, certified staff supervise "Tech Tots" children. The play-based curriculum allows children opportunities for positive interactions with adults and children in the program.

This is an inclusive program where preschool children interact with preschool children with special needs. Special needs children receive speech/language and/or occupational therapies in the classroom setting and on an individual basis as needed.

The preschool uses mixed-age grouping in two classrooms and a Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) classroom. This allows high school and adult students to practice the VPK curriculum.

Florida's FREE VPK Program
Florida's FREE VPK program offers quality learning opportunities for all four year old children. Eligible children must be 4 by September 1 of the school year, but not yet 5 or eligible for kindergarten.
Parents may learn more about the Florida's FREE VPK program by calling:
