Gateway Learning Center enrollment is open to any child, provided the Center can meet the needs of that child. Admission will not be denied based upon gender, race, color, national origin, or disability. Children must be at least 12 months of age when enrolled. We are a private nonprofit organization, and it should also be understood that attendance at the Center is not a given right, but a privilege.
We understand that most parents who enroll their children in our program are working parents, and that your time is very limited, but we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be a part of our day whenever your schedule allows. Please feel free to stop by anytime to visit your child.
It is the parent's responsibility to keep the Center informed of all address and phone number changes, emergency and contact changes, any other information that has changed from the original enrollment, and any re-registration forms. Please also keep us informed of special circumstances in your family which might be upsetting or effecting the behavior or demeanor of your child. This information will be kept in strict confidence, and only shared on a need-to-know basis. We can help a child deal with his/her worries and emotions if we know a certain event or events are happening (e.g., death in the family, moving, death of a pet, changes in living situations, etc.)
Enrollment will be forfeited for any child and/or family who: do not conform to the Center's policies and/or procedures, and/or are unwilling to adjust to our environment, and/or will not follow the Center and licensing regulations.
Enrollment is also determined by our staff to child ratio. Additionally, enrollment is based upon the number of children currently enrolled and in attendance.
For additional information on our various academic childcare programs, or to schedule a personal tour of our facilities, please contact our admissions office at 360-779-9189 or by clicking here.
We look forward to meeting you and your child!
