What Others Are Saying

Gateway is the most wonderful school we’ve ever been to! I sent my oldest son who is now 17 yrs old , my 13 yr old son , my 6 yr old daughter and now my 4 yr old son all to Gateway, Bc I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my children! They have become family! We have trusted them for well over 10 years now ! My daughter who was the only child of mine out of 4 kids , who gave me trouble going to school , well they took the time to work with her and by the end of the year she was crying to leave there! Now we send her every summer to the week long bible camp which she looks forward to every year! This school is truly one of a kind ! Best staff around ! ❤

Love this school. My kids went here to this nursery school throughout pre-K ( 3years old - 5 years old). I heard about this school from a friend of mine. Her kids went there and they are now in almost middle school! We moved from Manhattan to Long Island and we did not really know anyone! We eventually met friends at school and to this day they are still coming over for play dates! The moms are also very nice! I want my kids to have people around them with the same values of life I had growing up. Gateway Nursery School has these values. They teach the little ones the love of GOD and I can’t ask for a better lesson than this! Gateway Nursery school is a perfect school for beginning of social life and the anxiety of separation.

Gateway Nursery School was the perfect place for our son to learn important social and educational skills. The subjects were presented in a creative and fun way, and the children always had plenty of physical play and music time! The teachers were gentle and caring, and had great communication with us. We highly recommend Gateway to anyone looking for a positive and loving learning environment for their child!
