Our Philosophy

We know that a child’s first five years are critical to cognitive, social, creative and physical development. At Gateway Academy Wilmington we encourage a child to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment.

What Makes Us Unique

We are a 4-star school accredited preschool and exceed the high standards set by the state of North Carolina for child development. Throughout the year, we offer several opportunities for families to be involved in our school: community yard sales, ice cream socials, spaghetti dinners, parents’ night out and many other special events.

A nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack are prepared by our wonderful cook and are included in the weekly tuition. Additionally, we have the best After School program in Wilmington including homework help and free transportation from area schools for children in kindergarten through 5th grade.
