Summit Celebrates 10 Years (BG)

A mission disguised as a business

On August 27th, 2009 Nancy Klensch opened the doors
to Summit Kids, serving just 37 children at our UES Campus.

Fast forward to present day

Summit Kids serves over 1,000 kids every day at 16 campuses
in Calgary, 1 in Cochrane, and 1 in Chestermere; is one of
Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies; and continues to
redefine childcare every single day.

Just wait and see what we've
got planned for the next 10 years.
