I have been up close and personal with this center and let me tell you If I had a child at this facility I would be demanding my money back. There has been many changes in command through the past year or so and the directors they have right now do not care about the children at all. They are more worried about paperwork and treating their staff like crap then what the children really need to be successful. Parents pay for special things to happen and be provided to their children and they are constantly let down and things are constantly cancelled. I would be demanding my money back. All I am saying is the staff try their hardest to take care of the children but are given really little support by their management team. I have seen more staff come and go because of the treatment by management then I have seen any other place before. Seriously->find a new center.

I have been at this center for several years. Over that time it has certinly had some ups and downs, but I must say it is certainly on a big up right now. The management team has imporved the quality of teachers over the past year and is holding them accountable for providing the care and education they present. I recommend the center to all of my friends as I feel confident that not only is my child loved, but learning so much more than he would at any other center in the area. The proof is when my child plays with neighborhood friends... I can see just how much more he is able to do and how confident he is compared to others. I am impressed with the changes that have been made over the past year.

It's pathetic that Lexington County is considered to be one of the better school districts, yet the options for daycare/preschool are below standard and not acceptable to a parent that is actually concerned about the well-being of her child. Though Gateway Academy presents as a great facility, it is chaos. Corporate would rather take your money than care for your child. They give a good talk - but take absolutely no positive actions to improve the facility or the programs offered to educate and care for your child. And the great curriculum they advertise on their website is false - they don't offer any of it. The children just play all day, they don't learn a thing. They don't teach Spanish, writing or reading. They won't even potty train your child. I believe the Regional Director that has been overseeing this facility for years is at fault for its current state. She has no clue what is happening - nor does she care. Ask her a question that requires an actual educated response and she'll give you a blank stare and talk in fluffy, flowery circles. This lack of engagement is apparent when you witness them losing staff and parent support due to their inability to gain control over the curriculum and care of the children. The only control they have is their comparison to other centers in the area - there are NO alternatives in Lexington that provide ample play space or a relatively clean environment for a child that has parents who work full-time.

My daughter has food allergies which where described in detail verbally and in writing to the staff at Gateway. I provided my daughter with plenty of food for her stay there. The "teachers" ignored all of this and fed her the standard food, making her very sick. In addition to this, the day care center allows exterminators to spray poison in the center, during business hours and while children where present. This also made my daughter very sick. DSS was contacted about all of this and issued Gateway with two citations for their negligence.

Gateway Academy Child Development Centers located in Lexington is very good. I know some of the teachers personally and if you let your child go there, they will be taken care of as if you're doing it yourself. You want your child in an environment that is safe and that you can trust. I believe that Gateway is just that type of place.

Gateway Academy has a wonderful appearance when you walk up. They have secure access to the building and a super clean center. All the rooms have vision doors that allow you to see into each room from any place in the center. They also provide a booklet from birth to 5 years old with pictures and write ups of each new development of your child. They are very easy to talk with about concerns and very adaptable to our schedule with our child. I would highly recommend this center to anyone. The cost is very pricy but you pay for what you get.
