Admission Process

Step One: Tour Our School

At Gates Preschool we value personal relationships because we want our families to feel engaged on every level. Parents are invited to schedule a visit with our director. To schedule a tour, please call us at 504-885-4339.

Step Two: Apply

Registration for Infant, Toddler, and Pre-K programs are open to the community; however, preference is given to currently enrolled families and congregation members in good standing. 

Classes are filled on a first come/first served basis according to date of application. A waiting list is available once classes become filled. Before and After Care programs are reserved for enrolled families only and schedules must align with school schedules.
