Building Blocks Program Overview
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 experience 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.
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.
