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:

My diverse professional background has helped me to stay grounded and allowed me to home in on what I truly enjoy doing.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Geography from SUNY Geneseo, and my Associates degree in Adolescent Education from MCC. Prior to coming on board with Generations, I spent 7 years working for a local school as a Registrar as well as a Database Administrator where I managed the student information and oversaw multiple database conversions.  I have also spent time as a Teacher’s Assistant, working with children who have special needs.  I have worked with children from birth up through adulthood, which has given me a varying array of growth both personally and professionally.  I have found that working with children has given me a unique perspective of the individualities that every person has. 

At Generations we strive to provide the highest quality care and education.  I enjoy being an active part in the growth and development of children in our care and when you love your job it really isn’t work –  it is a passion.
