You Make A Difference To Gateway

Fundraising Matters

Providing high-quality child care for children and appropriate training and experience for teachers and staff isn’t always easy.  You can make a difference in the lives of children in our community by making a donation to Gateway.  Donated funds are utilized to purchas learning materials for the classrooms, provide nutritious meals and snacks, and training for our staff.  Funds can also be used to assist low income families that are on the waiting list for financial assistance.  If you would like to talk about how you can make a positive difference, give our Executive Director a call today!

What Our Children, Parents & Care Givers Say About Gateway

“Great staff that actually cares for the childs well being. Not only physically but they also help them excel in learning new things that some daycares don’t do. Just an all around great place!”

Patrick M.

“My kid has higher behaviors and Gateway will work with you as long as you are willing to work with them.  Amazing care and amazing relationships are formed.”

Felicia M.

“Gateway is amazing.  They treat both my girls with love and care.  I am so grateful to have a safe and trustworthy daycare, so I can work for my family.  I even have a daughter with verbal Apraxia and does not speak.  Her two teachers nurture this and have the patience that I sometimes lack.  I think of Gateway as a support system.”
