Our Children

Gateway Christian Education Center is licensed to care for children six weeks old through age 12. We provide a safe, supportive environment for children to learn and grow. We partner with our parents to help our children reach their full potential.

Babies and Toddlers

Younger children require close supervision. While your child is exploring and playing, he or she is always learning. They learn new things about the world around them each day and continually expand their horizons.

Gateway Christian Education Center provides a safe, nurturing environment where your baby can explore and discover the world. Even the youngest of children learn through playing. Our care for infants is designed to provide opportunities and skills that will be building blocks for their further development.


Preschool provides children with a good foundation for starting Kindergarten. our preschool program teach children the basics of letters, numbers and other skills, as well the social skills needed.  Early childhood education is an essential part of a child's development.
