Gates (Washington Irving)

Our Gates Child Care Center first opened its doors in 1993 and moved to its current location in 2008. The center is not only spacious and open, but enjoys multiple outdoor spaces and playgrounds as well. The large outdoor space makes spending summers at this location exciting. Our Gates center is particularly unique because in addition to child care, we have our elder care at this facility as well! Children can walk down the hall to visit with the grandmas and grandpas and we often incorporate intergenerational activities into our schedule. Gates is located at the Former Washington Irving Elementary School.

For children within the Gates-Chili School District, Generations offers a free Universal Pre-K Program.

A Word From Our Director:

My name Nelda Battle and I am the Director at Generations’ Gates Location. I Joined the Generations family in April 2018 and since then I have enjoyed building relationships with all our families. 

I started my career in 1994 as a preschool teacher and have been working in child care and education ever since.  I have always loved working with children- their innocence, enthusiasm and curiosity are always fun to see and help keep me young.  My mission is to create an environment that supports the social, emotional, collaborative and creative intelligence of each child here at Generations.  I look forward to building a relationship with your family!

– Nelda Battle, Site Director
