Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a "place for childhood" where children have the time and space to connect with the natural world and learn in the way they know best-PLAY! At Green Gate, our desire is for every child to know and experience God's love and to learn to be kind and compassionate individuals as they broaden their understanding and learn about the world around them. We believe these are the most critical experiences young children can have in order to be happy and successful in school and life!  

We Believe...

  • Relationship-Based Education  Children grow and learn best when they are safe and valued, their physical needs are met, and they feel emotionally secure. We believe forming close relationships with families in order to connect the home and preschool environment is essential. 

  • Natural Development A child’s developments—physical, social/emotional, spiritual and cognitive—are closely related. Because of this relationship, learning experiences are organized in natural ways that encourage children to make meaningful connections across domains. 

  • Learning through PLAY Children are active learners. Play gives children opportunities to understand the world, interact with others in social ways, express and control emotions, practice new skills, attempt challenging tasks, and solve complex problems. We encourage independent thinking, curiosity, and discovery through engaging materials and curriculum both indoors and out.

  • All Children Are Unique Children learn in different ways and at different rates. They are encouraged to represent their knowledge and abilities in ways meaningful to them through language, logic/math, spatial understanding, body movement, music, social skills, and self awareness.

  • Regular Experiences in Nature Children benefit from regular outdoor play experiences in nature. Young children who spend ample time exploring the natural world develop a connection to and love of nature that continues into adulthood.

  • Responsibility within Community We form authentic relationships and respect the time, space, materials, and creative process of every individual thus maintaining a positive learning environment and community culture.

  • Enduring Purpose God has a unique plan for every child and family who walks through our doors. Our goal is for every child to know God, understand the love he has for them, and stand alongside them as they pursue their God-given purpose.
