Meet The Director

Mrs. Nicole Garcia

     Hello Gateway Academy families!!  My name is Ms. Nicole and I am the Director here at Gateway Academy.  Working with children has always been my JOY and I consider myself very lucky to do what I love.  I am very grateful to be a part of your child's early learning years.  I have worked with children for more than 15 years, 4 years of them Directing a school or child site and the other years I worked in the classroom.  I love to see the children's growth, curiosity and imagination and nothing brings a smile to my face more than the true genuine uncontrollable laughter of a child.

     I am blessed with three beautiful children, Jayleen 10, Nicholas 7, and my littlest Olivia who is almost 2.  I have been married to my loving and supportive husband for 11 years.  I grew up in this beautiful city of Chino.  I did leave Chino for a period of 5 years, living in Arizona, but Chino is my HOME and I am glad to be back.

     When I am not at Gateway I am spending time with the family.  A few things my family loves to do is going on camping trips, enjoying a family movie or supporting my sons love for soccer and cheering him on from the sidelines.  I also love to shop when I get the chance.  I love arts and crafts and event planning.
