BRIDGETON, N.J. — The City of Bridgeton welcomed The Golden Gate, Inc. as another resource for parents to use for protecting and looking after their children while they work, run by founder and CEO Valerie Robinson.
“A lot of our parents were coming to us from the Bridgeton area, and so because they were coming and leaving their city to come to us, I knew there was a need in the Bridgeton area,” said Robinson.
Golden Gate Inc. Bridgeton is the seventh childcare development center of its kind; this new facility is equipped with its own activity rooms and multiple preschool classrooms. The facility takes up 9,000 square feet and is located on 41 N. Pearl Street in Bridgeton.
The mayor of Bridgeton, Mayor Albert Kelly, says you can never have enough good quality childcare.
“This fits the growth of our city and I’m looking forward to them flourishing and prospering in our city,” said Kelly.
A ribbon cutting ceremony took place solidifying The Golden Gate Inc. is here to stay in Bridgeton. The Golden Gate Inc. mission is to provide portfolio of family services that will foster the building and restoring of foundations for children to reach their maximum potential.
