At Gilbert Public Schools, we believe that for a preschooler, the road to knowledge is exploration. Kindergarten Prep transforms learning into a walk of discovery, offering safe and exciting opportunities for experimentation, challenge and fun at every turn! This program is designed to give your child a jump start on becoming a prepared and eager student ready for the rigors of kindergarten! Due to the length of the sessions, and amount of days per week, a child that is ready to focus and sit a little longer then average, is a student that would be the most successful. Kindergarten Prep teachings are aligned with the Arizona Department of Education Early Learning Standards, and is supplemented with:

  • Houghton Mifflin
  • Handwriting Without Tears
  • 20 Students per class
  • HQT Certified Teachers
  • 1 Trained Assistant
