In December, the Gilbert Community School District Board of Education gave approval to once again offer Kindergarten Prep at Gilbert Elementary. Kindergarten Prep is our version of an alternative kindergarten program. This program is intended to serve children between their preschool and kindergarten school years. The program will help meet the needs of students who are not quite ready for kindergarten either socially, academically, emotionally, and/or physically. Birthdate is often a primary factor for parents who choose to send their children to this program. Students must be 5 years old on or before September 15, 2019.
The program will operate Monday-Friday from 8:05am-12:00pm. Snack will be served, but the students will not eat lunch at school. Children who typically qualify for district transportation will also be provided transportation to and from school.
If you are unsure if you would like to enroll your child in this program, please talk to your child’s preschool teacher. They are often a great resource in helping make this decision. If you are interested, please complete the information below. We will send additional communication to those who sign-up.
