Gates Chili Early Childhood Program

  • Gates Chili is proud to offer full-day Universal Pre-Kindergarten (for children who turn 4 by Dec. 1) and full-day kindergarten (for children who turn 5 by Dec. 1). Our curriculum is standards-based, with a focus on experiences that build key readiness skills in literacy and math. Play is a powerful learning tool for young students, and teachers purposefully incorporate playful experiences in the UPK and kindergarten school day. These experiences help children practice decision-making, develop empathy and emotional regulation skills, practice resolving conflicts, develop communication skills, and exercise their creativity. 

    Additional information regarding kindergarten registration and the application process for UPK can be found below. We look forward to working with you and your family!
