We’ve had our son enrolled in the infant class for a couple of months now. The staff has been wonderful, in particular his teacher Ms. Maria. I am a first time mom so taking him to daycare was really difficult. It’s been made much easier knowing that he is so well cared for and provided with age appropriate activities and interaction throughout the day. He is always clean and happy when we pick him up, even if we pop in early unannounced. The director has been great with answering my questions. I also love getting pictures and updates while I’m at work. We have been very happy with our experience at Gateway McKee and we would recommend it to other parents.

My grandson has been at the McKee Gateway for several years. We have been very lucky that he has had wonderful teachers the whole time, and we never worried about his safety or well-being. My daughter and I used to have concerns about the front staff’s behavior, but under new management, all of that has changed now.

The new management is wonderful. The director, Amy, and her staff are kind, loving, and caring. Amy spends time in all of the classes and she and her staff make great efforts to know all of the kids and their families. It’s a great pleasure to walk in and see smiling, friendly faces greet us.

I have to give a shout out to my grandson’s pre-4 teachers, Ms. Sheila and Mr. Will. They are awesome! I cannot imagine a place I would rather have my grandson cared for during the weekdays.

If you are looking for excellent childcare and preschool, please go meet the staff at McKee Gateway. They are truly a wonderful group. Gateway Center on McKee Road has made an amazing recovery, and is a place that I am proud to say that my grandson attends.

My child has been at Gateway Academy McKee since 8 weeks old, we have enjoyed the convenience of the center to our home and the friendly teachers and staff. While there have been some significant changes made over the last year I feel that they have the strongest team in place currently. The teachers seem to be re-energized, the center is brighter and more inviting. The Director, Amy, and Assistant Director, Caroline, are wonderful. Always smiling and happy to greet parents as they enter and exit the facility. My daughter comes home happy each day and can’t stop talking about the fun she had with her friends and teachers. Keep up the great work and the impressive improvements.

What we appreciate most about Gateway is their flexibility to accommodate working schedules that may not be consistent. I constantly need to change my days and sometimes hours and they always make it work. The teachers in my daughter’s classroom greet us with genuine interest and are excited to see her grow and develop. Oftentimes the staff are singing songs with the babies and engaging them in fun activities. We feel very thankful for the care Gateway has provided for daughter!
