Our Philosophy

What Makes Our Preschool Unique

Gateway Academy Centennial is a ‘hands-on’ learning environment where children experience fun while they learn. For example, every spring we hatch our own butterflies and ladybugs. Throughout the year we enjoy providing in-house field trips to extend the learning process in areas such as music, science, and culture. One of our favorite days is our Transportation Fair where we invite a variety of community helpers to bring their trucks and vehicles and we get to explore them!

As a means to ensure your child’s success, we provide developmental evaluations twice a year including conferences for preschoolers. Written daily communication is also provided for your child.

To promote your child’s physical development, we provide a nutritional breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. We provide 60 minutes of exercise each day to complement our nutritional menu.
