Start of School

Dear Village Gate Families, 

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! Our classrooms will continue to be indoor/outdoor with no masks, but continued attention to the health & safety of our community. You can count on us to provide the same great, quality, creative program as we have always provided. 

We hope you are thoroughly enjoying your summer and the extra time with your children. Time is passing so quickly and the first day of school is quickly approaching. As you might imagine, making these changes is no small endeavor, but we are excited to utilize the incredible property we are blessed with to make outdoor learning a lot of fun! Every new school year brings with it numerous possibilities and opportunities for growth, not only for our students, but for each of us, and for our school as a whole.  This year may be the very definition of that statement, but we know that by working together and striving toward our common goals, we will make this another incredible school year at Village Gate. 

Here are some important dates for the start of the school year:
August 23rd - September 2nd – Prep Days
August 29th – September 1st - Math & Reading Clinic
