Mission Statement

The mission of The Learning Gate is to provide affordable, quality care to children, while fostering each child’s intellectual, social, and physical development in a stimulating and nurturing environment.


The Learning Gate, An Association of Child Care Centers is a nonprofit organization serving Somerset and Hunterdon counties since 1967. The Learning Gate is licensed by the N.J. Dept. of Human Services, and operates within strict compliance of licensing standards. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of parents, staff, and community members.

Throughout our 50 year history, our mission has been to provide quality, affordable childcare for families in our community. Our programs offer childcare for over 165 children daily at our two locations, 816 Old York Road, Raritan, and 433 Route 202, Flemington, NJ. We provide care for children ages six weeks thru Kindergarten.

Through partnerships with Community Childcare Solutions, The Learning Gate is able to provide full-time daycare to low income populations through dedicated childcare vouchers and the New Jersey Cares for Kids program that provides up to 60% financial support for full-time day care. In addition, through an agreement with the Division of Child Protection and Permanency, The Learning Gate delivers quality care to Somerset County foster children, serving more displaced children than any other daycare in the county. The need for these services is steadily increasing and the urgency for quality care for the most vulnerable children in our county has grown acute.
