At Gateway Preschool Academy, our goal is to develop the whole child according to Luke 2:52, “and Jesus grew in wisdom {mental}, and in stature {physical}, and in favor with God {spiritual} and man {social & emotional}.”

GPA will use an academically appropriate curriculum. In addition, our staff will develop lesson plans that promote academic, spiritual and social growth using other Kinder-ready curriculum enhancements within a Christian framework. Teachers will commit to providing a positive learning experience with age-appropriate activities and learning centers that will relate to specific units of study. We offer Chapel and introduction to Spanish

18 month old – Pre-K classes will enjoy music and movement to give them time to play and move as they grow physically while learning about transitions and adapting to change of environments. Toddlers will enjoy music and movement in their classrooms. Teachers will be trained in implementation of music and movement within the classroom. 

Chapel lasts approximately 15-20 minutes and occurs every Thursday for our 3 year-old and Pre-K students. During Chapel, children will hear age-appropriate Bible stories from various bible curriculum and church resources. Children will be encouraged to sing, participate in acting out the story and learn memory verses.
