WELCOME to Green Gate!
Green Gate Children's School is a licensed preschool and early childhood program located in northwest Wichita. Since 2008, we have provided local families with the best in play and nature-based education. Our research-based programming supports the idea that "play" builds a foundation for lifelong learning.
We are excited to announce that in the spring of 2020, we are expanding our program and are moving to a larger facility on 2 1/2 acres of land to give us more space, both indoors and out! Your child will have lots of time and space for curiosity, playfulness, and socialization as they explore and learn about the world around them.
One of the first things you will notice when you walk through our doors is that our school has the look and feel of home bringing natural elements, cozy furnishings, and traditional preschool materials together to create a warm, inviting, and enriching learning environment. Outdoors we provide a natural play yard filled with trees, play structures, swings, sand, water, dirt, rocks and other natural elements.
Our teachers use rich and diverse daily experiences such as baking, gardening, art, music and story, what we call The Living Arts, to help children deepen their sense of self, make healthy life choices, build compassion for others, and connect to the natural world. Our unique year-round curriculum is centered around seasonal nature themes and incorporates a broad range of preschool learning activities in all developmental domains.
In concurrence with current brain research and years of working with young children in various early childhood settings, we know the best environment for young children is rich in the experiences of daily life and one which provides a gentle transition from home to school. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with your family by providing a warm and welcoming preschool learning community.
