Gateway at a Glance

The Gateway School has been educating young children since 1947.

The creative atmosphere at The Gateway School stimulates the imagination and creativity of children through play, music, art, language, drama, special projects and events. Both its brightly lit building and its playgrounds encourage free-flowing interaction and movement so that the children can be well-supervised and independent at the same time. Just the right balance of structure and freedom allows the children to grow and develop at their own pace.

Since 1947, families on the Main Line have chosen The Gateway School for the early education of their young children. We encourage you to take the time to get to know us so you can discover why our school continues to draw those who are passionate about their children’s educational foundation.
