About Gateway Academy
There are eight Gateway Academy Child Development Centers in and around Charlotte and Gateway Academy Northlake is one of our locations in North Charlotte. Gateway Academy is proud to be part of the Cadence Education Family of Schools and our alignment with Cadence provides us access to effective preschool programs like Kindergarten Club and the Ascend Curriculum that you won’t find anywhere else.
We take a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which gives our teachers the flexibility needed to individualize instruction to the interests and learning styles of each child in our care. Children build skill sets within 11 different learning domains as they progress through our daycare and preschool programs. Testing has confirmed that our Pre-Kindergarten students are ready for the exciting transition into kindergarten.

Kindness is an essential part of our school’s culture and Kind Child is a program that makes kindness a habit for both students and staff. Our teachers and directors are committed to bringing kindness into their daily interactions with each child and help children develop valuable character traits such as Thankfulness, Friendship, Empathy, and a Positive Self-Image through our Ascend Curriculum. We have found that when we focus on the emotional well-being of our students, we create a welcoming preschool environment where children thrive.
