Welcome to Building Blocks for the 20/21 school year. Although this year looks quite different from years past, we remain dedicated to providing your student with the best school experience possible. We will be opening nine locations to begin our year to provide the safest learning environment possible, with the hopes of resuming all locations as soon as it is safe to do so, while still maintaining the structure of Building Blocks.
We have created a tremendous system with focus on student and staff health, including doorside dropoff/pickup, smaller grouping of students, daily staff health screenings, increased cleaning protocols and a variety of other strategic adjustments aligned to the health needs of our community.
Building Blocks Preschool Program is designed to help prepare young children for Kindergarten by promoting confidence within an elementary school environment.
Gilbert Public Schools is proud to offer Building Blocks Preschool, a full day preschool program that allows your 3, 4, or young 5-year-old firsthand experiences of what it means to be a student. Our uniquely designed curriculum, based on the AZ Early Childhood Standards, helps create a foundation for your young student to build upon as they move towards their school career.
Please review the location listing detailing the availability of each age program at various school locations (not all ages available at all locations).
Registration for the current school year as well as the upcoming 2021–22 school year is now available!
