The preschool years are a time when learning and development abound as young children are naturally inquisitive and eager to learn.  Gateway Academy’s Pre-K program has been intentionally designed to tap into this excitement through hands-on, discovery learning opportunities each day.  Our dedicated and loving staff provide a safe, nurturing, and family-involved environment where children feel like they belong. Gateway's Pre-K classes participate in the following….

  • Daily Bible instruction exposing young children to God's unending love and His Holy Word

  • Character and social-emotional development

  • Daily literacy instruction with a strong phonics focus

  • Math, science, social studies, Spanish, music/movement, and art learning activities

  • Daily physical activities provided through P.E. / recess for gross motor development

  • Balanced approach of large group and small group learning experiences

  • Differentiation of instructional levels to meet the individual needs of each and every child

Gateway Academy is built upon the cornerstone of a biblical perspective from which students learn to view the world and their role in it.  Classrooms that feature leading technology, together with carefully selected curriculum, research-based instructional practices, and educational professionals called by God to Gateway are the backbone of Christian education at Gateway Academy.
