Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Gateway Academy Child Development Centers are dedicated to the philosophy that every child in our care is unique and special. Through careful guidance by our teachers, children are encouraged to grow and develop through age appropriate activities and curriculum. We value and respect the important role parent's play in their child's education. We believe that children learn best through play; that is why our program is developed around theme based curriculum that encourages children to express themselves in the areas of educational, social, physical, and emotional growth.
Each Gateway Academy Child Development Center has an educational curriculum centered on themes throughout the year. The themes are further integrated by webbing numbers, letters of the alphabet, colors, and shapes into the activities throughout the classroom. This curriculum has been developed in a joint effort between Gateway Academy and the University of South Carolina's Department of Early Childhood Education."
