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


This high-pressure world full of expectations has created a trend of right-brain, left-brain and academic preparatory for our wee ones.
At Summit, we know that the first 5 years of a child’s life is when they need to trust their environment and the people within it.  We provide a place where they can explore and stretch into their true selves on their own terms.


We think we’re pretty great but we’re not the only ones! Check out Calgary’s Child – Parent’s Choice Awards for Best Extracurricular Preschool Program read all about it www.calgary’schild.com 


We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process. We value the individuality of each child and recognize that they have their own strengths, interests, and ways of learning. Our emergent curriculum approach is centered around these principles, allowing children to take the lead in their learning experiences.

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

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.
