Hey there! A little bit about myself: I have been a preschool teacher/ classroom housekeeper for 24 years and I have worked as a nanny/ weekend babysitter for over 10 years. I have worked with children of all ages, developmental abilities, & temperaments. I was previously employed with Tacoma Public Schools and since relocating to SC I have been working as a nanny for a 11& 15 yr-old. who will soon be driving. I love pets just as much as I love children. I have grown up with cats my entire life but I have had plenty of opportunities to take care of fish, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, and dogs. I have recently finished a B. S. in Sociology from ASU online and I'm currently working on a M. S. in Family/Human Development I am also training to be a volunteer child advocate with Lexington County as part of my work experience with my Master's degree. I look forward to meeting you and your children! Christina

Christina has been our nanny for over a year now. As our boys are getting older we won't be needing her as often. She has been dependable, punctual, pleasant, professional and caring. She is great with the kids and is very flexible and easy to work with. She has picked up our 2 kids, from 2 different schools, every day. She is never late or absent. I don't think she has ever missed a day from illness or anything else that I can think of. She committed to working with us for a certain amount of time and passed up on other offers so that she could make sure she lived up to her commitment with us - which is not something we have experienced with care givers very often. The kids like her, the dogs like her, we like her. I can't emphasize just how lucky we are to have found her and just how sad we are that we will see her less often now. I would hire again in a heartbeat.

Gateway Academy Child Development Center - Lexington is much more than just daycare. We offer infant, toddler, preschool and child care programs with a curriculum that prepares children to thrive in their next stage of development, including kindergarten readiness.

Our small group environments in each classroom enable teachers to tailor the learning to each child's skill level and provide them individualized attention so they're prepared for their next milestone. We do this through a Primary Care Group approach where each teacher works with small groups of children at a time, so no child is ever without a teacher to guide them.

Our approach to learning is play-based because we know children learn better while they're having fun, engaged and interested. We give them plenty of time throughout each day to play, explore, and enjoy physical activities.

Our school management team, teachers and other staff have early childhood care and development experience, and they really enjoy teaching and nurturing the children in our care!

We also focus on developing and nurturing important character traits and social skills through our age-appropriate "Kind Child" approach.

Families are a very important part of our school and we encourage a strong parent-teacher-child connection. We do this through many classroom activities and events designed specifically for parents and children to participate together.

Open and ongoing communication with our families is important, and the most effective way we do this with parents is face-to-face whenever they drop-off their children in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon. We have an open-door policy, so you're welcomed to come in or call to chat about whatever is on your mind at any time.

We're very picky about our menu choices, so children receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks every day that are included in tuition.

We provide parents peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home!

Please contact us to schedule a visit, meet our caring and nurturing team, and see for yourself how our school is a very special place for your child to learn and grow.
