The Gateway Difference
Learn why we are the right choice for your family
Health Wise | Good Food Matters
Our goal is to keep your child active, happy and healthy; we provide meals that keep them growing strong. Our menus include a variety of home cooked meals that go above and beyond and exceed the minimum licensing requirements of the daily nutritional needs. Your child will be introduced new, age appropriate meals, to expand their food variety. Meals are served family style and may include your child assisting in areas such as table setting, food serving, and cleaning up.
At Gateway, we emphasize the importance of enrichment programs. These options allow children to learn while playing and exploring creative outlets. Our current programs include Spanish, Kindermusik, and and Teams of Tomorrow (TOTS!).
Safety and Security
Providing a safe, secure environment is our top priority at Gateway ELC. We make every effort to keep your child safe, happy and healthy. Our location has procedures and standards that are strictly enforced, including:
Secure lobby and classrooms. The entrance is equipped with an electronic lock. All parents must know the PIN number, while all visitors are greeted at the door to sign in and be assisted.
Visitor precautions: Photo ID is required from all unfamiliar visitors. A visitor listed as authorized to pick up a child must still show photo ID if they are not familiar to the school director and/or assistant director.
Equipment safety: One of our many precautions is "non-tippable" child sized tables.
Regular monitoring ensures equipment is good working order.
High definition cameras in all classrooms, outside play areas, and lobby.
Qualified Teachers and Low Classroom Ratios
Our teachers are highly trained, highly motivated, and highly responsive professionals. We check references and conduct thorough background checks based and state and/or local licensing requirements. This includes fingerpriting and appropriate criminal background checks, as well as verification of educational credintials. Teachers who will transport children undergo a thorough driving history check in addition to annual checks.
Flexible Care Program
With our Flexible Care Program, you get reliability and flexibility, as well as the opportunity for your child to experience our proven curriculum in a fun, safe and secure environment. Flex Care is the perfect solution for those who need care over holidays, school breaks, Summer, or work part-time and have an irregular schedule, or need a "day off".
