Our Philosophy

At Gateway Academy Northlake our philosophy is that children learn best in small class sizes with highly qualified teachers focused on providing an exceptional education and nurturing environment.

What Makes Our Preschool & Daycare Unique

Our curriculum program, Creative Kaleidoscope of Learning, features D’nealean Handwriting, Math Their Way, Baby Signs®, Country and Culture, Spanish, and monthly themes around which we plan our Art, Science and Sensory, and Literature programming.

Nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack are prepared each day by our talented cook. At Gateway academy we consider ourselves to be one big family. Cultural family events, parents’ night out, and breakfast and dinners on the go are just a few of the special family oriented programs we offer on a monthly basis. Compared to other schools in the area, we are open longer hours and closed during fewer holidays so we can be there for our families.

When you enroll at Gateway Academy, you become a part of a family. We treat each child, parent, and teacher as a part of our family and believe in building strong lasting connections. We pride ourselves in having strong communication amongst staff and with families, including notes home, weekly e-blasts, good news calls, monthly newsletters, curriculum connections, progress reports, and face-to-face communication.
