Gilbert Public Schools is proud to offer Kindercamp, a full day preschool program. The program focuses on building a foundation for academic success, providing an extraordinary opportunity for 3, 4, and young 5 year olds to get a jump start on learning and developing a love for school. The Kindercamp curriculum uses a thematic based approach, introducing letters and numbers each week.  The students engaged with, discover, and experience what it means to be a student in Gilbert Public Schools.

Kindercamp 3’s

Kindercamp 3’s program is the first block in building a foundation of academic success.  Students engage in a specifically designed curriculum-based program.  Utilizing circle time students are introduced to letters, numbers, colors, days of the week, months, and weather.  Using the small group setting, our 3 year old's complete five learning centers in art, science, cooking, writing, and fine motor skills before attending recess, lunch and rest time. After rest time students engage in three more centers followed by snack time. The day concludes with structured based play that focuses on socialization. 

Kindercamp 4’s

The second building block for academic success, our 4 year olds and young 5 year olds continue where our 3 year olds left off.  Ramping up the curriculum, students continue to master letters, numbers, colors, calendar, writing names, addresses, phone numbers, and begin preparation for reading readiness. Socialization and opportunities to build friendships continues during our before and after school day schedule. Upon completion of the Kindercamp Program our students have the foundation in place to enter Kindergarten with the tools, experiences, and passion for learning helping to ensure academic success now and well into the future.

 Snacks / Meals

A snack and drink is provided in the mornings and afternoons. Children attending full day also receive breakfast and an additional afternoon snack. Lunches are not provided during Kindercamp. Each student may bring his/her own sack lunch from home or lunch may be purchased from the school cafeteria. Lunch accounts will be available.
