Welcome to the Greatest Preschool in Gilbert



March 23, 2020

A Note From Our Founder: 

I hope you and yours are well and safe in these changing and sometimes scary times. I want to let you know that after speaking with the state, our directors and our teachers, we have prayerfully and unanimously decided to STAY OPEN for as long as we safely can. I know that many parents and families, including those who work in doctors offices, hospitals, first responders and grocery stores are relying on us in order to support their families, as well as support our Gilbert community.

Because many of our students have decided to stay home we are currently accepting new students aged 3 -12. If you or someone you know has lost their childcare and doesn't have a stay-at-home alternative, please have them give us a call. I also want to ensure you that you we are thoroughly sterilizing the entire facility every night, according to the state and CDC guidelines. We have one main goal at Great Start: to provide your children a safe and loving environment to grow and learn. We remain committed to that goal, and we wish you well.

Pastor Mark Di Bernardo
Great Start Founder

There is not another preschool in Gilbert that offers the multitude of programs and benefits that Great Start does. No one can come close!   You would pay big bucks at another facility to receive this quality of care, but we are a non-profit cooperation and we are not trying to get rich off your kids!  We have the guaranteed lowest prices in Gilbert! If you find someone with similar rates, we will beat them!  We are not the biggest preschool but we offer what those facilities, cannot, family, connection, safety and relationship .  Call us today to schedule a no pressure tour.
