2018-2019 Registration will close January 27, 2018.

A new district online registration process began on January 22, 2018.  Enrollment into that system does not register your child for a Kindergarten Prep class, it is entering information in the district system.  To register into a Kindergarten Prep class you must register through the links on this page and then do the district online registration.

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 20 student program, taught by a certified teacher with a classroom assistant, is designed to give your child a jump start on becoming a prepared and eager student ready for the rigors of kindergarten!  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
  • Fundations
