Our Staff

Our school staff is composed of an Educational Director/Teacher, Administrator, Group Aides and Mother Helpers.

The Director/Teacher plans and directs the school's educational program and serves the needs of the school family. The Group Aides assist the Director/Teacher, observing, supervising, interacting and caring for the students. The Mother Helpers participate in classes and assist wherever needed. The Administrator cares for the school's business and financial matters.

Teachers and Group Aides are CPR certified.

Our Curriculum

The activities at our twelve classroom learning centers develop age-appropriate curriculum skills while the children also enthusiastically enjoy those pursuits. The children will engage in quiet listening times, discussions and sharing of ideas, and active learning through manipulatives and projects.  The combination of direct instruction and discovery learning are designed to create a wonder-filled education for preschoolers.

What people are saying about our school

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!

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 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 ! ❤
