A Building Block for Kindergarten

Registration for the 2017-2018 Kindercamp school year starts February 1st, 2017


Gilbert Public Schools, Office of Community Partnerships is proud to offer   Kindercamp, a full day preschool program. With a focus on building a foundation for   academic success, the Kindercamp programs provide an extraordinary opportunity for 3, 4, and young 5 year old's to get a jump start on learning and developing a love for school. Our curriculum uses a thematic based approach, introducing letters and numbers each week.  The students will be engaging, discovering, and experiencing what it means to be a student in Gilbert Public Schools.

Kindercamp 3’s

Our 3’s program is the first block in building a foundation of academic success.  Students will be engaging in our specifically designed curriculum based program.  Utilizing circle time students will be introduced to letters, numbers, colors, days of the week, months, and weather.  Using the small group setting, our 3 year old's will complete five learning center in art, science, cooking, writing, and fine motor skills before attending recess, lunch and rest time. After rest time students will engage in three more centers followed by snack time. The day concludes with structured based play that focuses on socialization. 

  Kindercamp 4’s

The second building block for academic success, our 4 and young 5 year old's will continue where our 3 year old's left off.  Ramping up the curriculum students continue to master letters, numbers, colors, calendar, writing names, addresses, phone numbers, and begin preparation for reading readiness. Socialization and building friendships will also continue during our before and after school day   schedule. Upon completion of the Kindercamp Program our students will have the foundation in place to enter Kindergarten with the tools, experiences, and passion for learning to have academic success now and well into the future.

 Snacks / Meals

A snack and drink will be provided in the mornings and afternoons. Children attending full day will also receive breakfast and an additional afternoon snack. Lunches are not provided during Kindercamp. Each student may bring his/her own sack lunch from home or lunch may be purchased from the school cafeteria. Lunch accounts will be available.
