About Us

Our Mission

Providing supportive child care & learning environments where children thrive on their own terms.

Program Philosophy

Summit Kids is an enriching program with a fresh and innovative approach to out-of-school time. We have created an environment that encourages all children to achieve their best while having fun being a kid. By fostering relationships with various community resources, we have developed an extensive and integrated program that provides kids with an array of options for wellness, learning, creativity and social development. Summit Kids will:

  • Promote leadership and encourage peer mentoring
  • Help children with issues they face – homework, family, peer, self-esteem challenges
  • Teach emotional, social and literacy skills

  • Guide children through problem solving and self-care choices

  • Model good choices with nutrition and recreation

  • Provide creative learning through technology and performing arts

  • Encourage child-led initiatives

WHCA Kindergarten Performance

The show was wonderful. It was so much fun to come and watch the performance that the kids worked so hard and so diligently on for months.

Wonderful Leaders

The leaders that we have had at Summit have been nothing short of amazing, especially this year. Mr. James and Miss. Olivia have been outstanding and we will miss them desperately. We are sorry that your program is not in our school, St. Cyril. And I just really wanted to communicate that you about how awesome everyone has been and that those leaders you got are gems.

Kind & Caring

Both of my children attend Summit Kids at the Terrace Road School. Ms. Jess and Ms. Jodi have been absolutely fabulous. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and care. You are very lucky to have such dedicated and enthusiastic employees. They truly deserve to be recognized for their hard work and the positive ways in which they represent Summit Kids. Thank you

Professional & Friendly

Mr. James and his team do an excellent job and the kids are happy.
They're very well organized and their programming is always interesting and varied. Not only do they really care about the children, but Mr. James and his staff are always professional and friendly with parents.
