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 Regional Enrollment Specialist:

I earned my BA degree in Elementary Teaching and hold an International Teaching Certificate from Cambridge University. I also completed a child care certification program.

I have many years of teaching and leadership position experiences at International Schools & Child Care Centers working with children 6 months to 12 years old. In my most recent positions I worked as a child care center Director, Family Outreach Specialist and School Age Coordinator.

During my teaching career I was able to explore many different ways to help children learn.  I have experience in implementing High Scope curriculum, Montessori Curriculum and International Baccalaureate.

The Generations staff is dedicated to provide a high-quality environment for your child. I am very excited to bring my experience and knowledge to Generations! I look forward to learning and growing with your child.
