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 Site Director:

Working with children and families is much more than a job or career for me. There is so much to learn from our children on a daily basis and I find great joy in each step of this journey.  I have dedicated more than 20 years to working with children and families as a public school teacher in the field of Special Education for children of all ages, from birth to adulthood. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Transylvania University, and Masters Degrees in Learning and Behavior Disorders as well as Moderate to Severe Disabilities, Rank 1 in Special Education, and Director of Special Education Certification from Eastern Kentucky University. I am honored to be a part of the Generations family and to be given the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with children, families and staff.  Our dedicated staff provide a safe environment for children to learn new skills, establish new relationships and become successful.
