Developing the whole child,
while exploring the whole world.
Searching for the right early learning center for your child? You found it!
Welcome to Gateway Early Learning Center, Inc. in Cleburne Texas, where we are proud to utilize Christian values and high moral standards to instill education, development, and achievement upon our students.
At Gateway, our staff partners with educationally driven families to achieve each student’s goals for growth and success. We are passionate about helping every child in our care maximize their education–with growth, development and achievements.
Our students and families find that we differ from other early learning centers in that we understand the rapid pace of today’s world and work to ease the stress of modern family life.
Our Early Learning Center understands the individual needs of students. We strive to provide first-class education in an atmosphere where children and their parents are treated with the utmost equality and respect.
At Gateway, we maintain a secure, stimulating, and loving atmosphere that enables our students to thrive educationally, socially, physically, psychologically, and culturally. Each child is encouraged to meet their full potential both individually and as part of a group by our range of stimulating learning opportunities in a safe and welcoming environment.
Gateway Early Learning Center first opened in March, 2009, and we have grown into an award-winning facility in 2012. We have been named the “Best Place to Work in Johnson County 2012,” the “Best Childcare in Johnson Country 2012,” and the “Best Boss in Johnson Country 2012.” We serve families in the Rio Vista, Grandview, and Cleburne, Texas areas.
Our achievements stem from our commitment to excellence and nothing less. We have developed an extensive learning environment with a professional staff to ensure success and excellence for our team, for our families, and most importantly, for our students.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Gateway Early Learning Center is to ensure a warm, nurturing, and Christian environment that encourages the development of a child’s socialization skills and independence while promoting a positive self-image.
Our Educational Philosophy
Gateway Early Learning Center offers a child-centered, multi-cultural learning environment in which each child is treated as an individual. The child’s needs and interests are to be respected and supported through developmentally appropriate activities.
We follow the HighScope Curriculum and enjoy speaking both English and Spanish. Both Gateway Early Learning Center locations are Baby Sign Language certified, allowing for earlier communication and less frustration!
Gateway believes that a child is best nurtured by a strong faith in God, along with a caring community made up of parents, teachers, and staff. Through a continued commitment to the highest quality education and a strong Christian background, Gateway intends its children to be future leaders with high moral standards.
