Very Important Kids (VIK) Before & After School Program

  • The VIK Club is Gilbert Public Schools Before and After school child care program. VIK is licensed, safe, fun-filled extended learning program for children in kindergarten through 6th grade offered through Gilbert Public Schools Community Education.

    We are proud to offer enrichment opportunities that accomplish two major goals: reinforcing the excellent educational programming at Gilbert Public Schools and encouraging personal growth by cultivating life skills, strong relationships and a sense of self-worth.


    Taking what we have designed over the summer months and pairing it with the community needs, along with Governor Ducey’s executive order, we are excited to announce the rollout of GPS Childcare on 9 elementary campuses for Kindergarten - 8th grade students.  Details of our programs are outlined below:

    • Start Date: August 5th, 2020 (offered until all students are able to return in person) 
    • Locations: Ashland Ranch, Canyon Rim, Carol Rae, Finley Farms, Mesquite El, Playa Del Rey, Sonoma Ranch, Spectrum, Superstition Springs 
    • Hours: 6:30 am - 6:00 pm 
    • Cost: Full time - $160 per week, M/W/F - $105 per week, T/Th - $70 per week - Monthly selection and billing 
    • Class Size/Student Grouping: 10 consistent students assigned to each classroom (families may request friends/family members for same classroom)
    • Curriculum: Daily activities including active games, arts/crafts, gaming, etc. along with structured times for online coursework completion and support


    ATTENTION (transitioning from Daycare Works to Eleyo): Registration for GPS Childcare will be open beginning on Monday, July 20 beginning at 10:00 am, through our new and much more user friendly platform Eleyo.  All families will need to register online with Eleyo regardless of being a new or returning student.  You will be able to access at
