Preschool & Kindergarten
Our Montessori preschool and kindergarten programs are designed to nurture a child's intrinsic desire to learn.  Each child is closely observed to develop an individualized experience which is constantly modified based on the teacher's observation of a student's development and interests.

All of our classroom activities, referred to as "work", are carefully designed to provide an integrated curriculum in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language Arts, Cultural Activities, and Mathematics .

Summer Camp
Each summer, Gateway holds summer camps (one week each) that combine fun with learning.  Usually a topic is chosen for each session like planets, maps, or oceans and then the children participate in fun activities such as building models, painting, or treasure hunt while learning about the chosen topic.  The camp is lead by Gateway's skilled staff and is available to Gateway's students and siblings.
