In a world bustling with high expectations and constant pressures, the need for nurturing, supportive child care and learning environments has never been more crucial. Summit Kids, with its refreshing and innovative approach to out-of-school time, stands as a beacon of excellence in this regard. Our mission is simple yet profound: to provide children with the space and encouragement they need to thrive on their own terms in Calgary’s premier Out-of-school program (before and after school care).


A Program Philosophy that Nurtures Young Minds at Our Calgary Facilities

At Summit Kids, we’ve carefully crafted an enriching program that prioritizes the holistic development of children. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that children should be allowed to explore, learn, and grow while having fun being kids on our campuses. Through strong partnerships with community resources, we’ve designed a comprehensive and integrated program that offers children a wide range of opportunities for wellness, learning, creativity, and social development.

Here’s what Summit Kids aims to achieve:

Promoting Leadership and Peer Mentoring: We encourage leadership skills and peer mentoring among children, fostering a sense of responsibility and collaboration.

Addressing Challenges: We provide support to children in facing various challenges, including homework, family dynamics, peer interactions, and self-esteem issues.

Teaching Emotional, Social, and Literacy Skills: Our program places a strong emphasis on nurturing emotional intelligence, social skills, and literacy development.

Problem Solving and Self-Care: We guide children through effective problem-solving and help them make healthy self-care choices.

Modeling Good Choices: Our approach extends to nutrition and recreation, where we model and encourage good choices for a balanced lifestyle.

Creative Learning: We foster creativity through the use of technology and participation in performing arts.

Child-Led Initiatives: We empower children to take the lead in their own initiatives, giving them a sense of ownership over their learning experiences.

We wanted to create a place where children can achieve their best while parents have the peace of mind knowing that their children are safe, having fun, cared for and enjoying their time in childcare. Summit Kids is a name you can trust for all of your child’s needs — care, education, and experiences. You can access https://summitkids.ca/out-of-school/ to register right now!
