We believe every child has the following five needs. 

We focus on doing what we can, as a church, to provide for them.

1. A really big God they can trust no matter what.                 

2. Someone else who believes what they believe.                 

3. Another voice that is saying what their parents are saying.

                                         4. Nosey parents who make it their business to know where their kids are spiritually.

5. Uncommon sense to make the wise choice.

Gateway Tots

We love little people! Tinytown is THE place for your little ones! We provide a secure and fun place for the smallest members of Gateway to play, laugh, crawl, climb... and experience God's love in a tangible way.
 We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for both you and your little ones.


KidzWorld is where kids come to learn Biblical truths as a foundation for character building and life choices. In KidzWorld, we believe that learning should be fun! We accomplish this through Bible lessons, songs, and activities that are age-appropriate, interactive, and relevant to today. KidzWorld provides a safe environment where children can become excited about learning and develop a loving relationship with God and others.


Offered on Sunday mornings during both services. Club 56 is for students in 5th and 6th grades who are too old for KidzWorld and don't feel quite ready for the big service. This class provides an experience where 56'er are taught in a way that is both fun and challenging; designed to meet their learning needs.

Gateway academy

Established in 1994, Gateway Academy is recognized throughout the Staten Island region as a diploma-granting, Christian-private school. Our rigorous Elementary and Middle School curricula fully prepare our graduates for high school and beyond.

At Gateway Academy, our focus is on your child! We view each child as having been blessed with great gifts and passions in order to use, to enjoy, and to enrich other people's lives with. Our goal is to help children realize their full potential. 

The dream of each child is personal - to become that artist, lawyer, nurse, teacher, physicist, and pilot - already visualized in the child's mind. Our responsibility is to provide the best possible launch pad for that dream to become a reality. 

This responsibility we take very seriously.
