Gateway Early Childhood Co-Op (GECCO)

Thursdays ~ 9 am to 12 pm

Proverbs 22:4-6 ~ The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.
Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked; whoever guards his soul will keep far from
them. Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Our new Gateway Early Childhood Co-Op (GECCO for short!) is an opportunity for children ages 2 to 5 to come together at Gateway Baptist Church for a time of intentional play and learning.  GECCO is led by parents who want to see God magnified in the lives of their children (Little Geckos) by training them up in humility and fear of the Lord.

GECCO will meet on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  It will begin on August 23 and run for two 12-week semesters.  During this academic play group, our "little geckos" will participate in an opening assembly that includes music, Bible, and basic development of themselves and the world around them.  There also will be age-appropriate sessions that include opportunities to develop foundational math, literacy, gross and fine motor skills.  Don’t worry, we know "little geckos" are squirmy, but we are excited to learn and grow together!

Please note that GECCO is not free child care. Every parent has a role and must remain on-site.

For this first semester, GECCO is free of cost.  However, families must register ahead of time.  For more information or to register, please contact Alycia Jeong at or the Gateway office.
