Welcome to Kindergarten Prep, a nurturing, child-centered Pre-K program created especially for four-year-olds as a stepping stone to kindergarten.

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! Kindergarten Prep is proud to offer Houghton Mifflin curriculum.
