Meet Summit Start 

We believe in the brilliant child.  And all children ARE brilliant.

We believe that all children need to be given the opportunity to discover and lean into their brilliance.  We also believe that brilliance doesn’t happen in a standardized environment.  In a world that is deficit-focus – we believe that  brilliance looks different, acts different and sounds different.  And although these are typically traits that are frowned upon in a standard educational system, we believe that when nourished, these traits can change the world.

Libby Room

The Libby room is where it all begins.  Your sweet ones will start here when they’re 12 months old.

Our caring team provides a soft, loving environment with sensory exploration and play.

Griffin Room

When your child is 19+ months old they will transition from the Libby to the Griffin room. 

This is where we alternate between parallel and group play.

Parker Room

P – is for Parker and Preschool, also known as Summit Steps.  Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, kiddos will develop a variety of skills and knowledge.

Alex Room

Alex Room is all things SUMMIT LAUNCH.  We provide a Kindergarten extended-day program in alignment with select schools.

And for those who want a lower ratio – we provide a full-day Kindergarten experience with all of the support of a daycare environment.

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.

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.
