Learn More

Find a nurturing place where I can learn while I play – and watch me thrive.

Give me a teacher that loves me and leads me to learn the way I learn best.

Sing a song and watch me make up my own words and laugh and burst with happiness and pride.

Take me to a place where I can make my first friends and be a part of a team.

And, maybe even lead the pack…

Give me some finger paint and watch me create a wonderful masterpiece and make an epic mess.

Teach me kindness and I’ll always be respectful of others.

Give me a cardboard box and watch me rocket to the moon or set sail on an epic adventure.

Give me opportunities for my creativity to soar, and for my imagination to go wild.

And, I’ll show you what I can do and where I can go.

Watch Me Thrive.

Welcome to Gateway Academy Child Development Centers!

Gateway Academy Child Development Centers provide nurturing childcare and exceptional early education programs for young children from 6 weeks to 12 years old in Charlotte, South Carolina.

We believe that young children have an endless capacity to learn and make the most of these precious early years through proprietary preschool programming such as the Ascend Curriculum, Kindergarten Club, and Kind Child. Our skill-based Ascend Curriculum helps children progressively build skill sets in 9 subject areas every month and is used in our Infant, Toddler, Early Learners, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten Programs. The flexibility built into the Ascend Curriculum allows us to individualize activities to the interests and skill level of each child so that these early learning experiences are fun and engaging!
