Successful Learners

Having the enthusiasm and motivation for learning.

Confident Individuals

Having self-respect, a sense of physical, mental & emotional well-being, and relating to others.

Effective Contributors

Having a positive attitude, resilience, respect for others, and the elements of a good civil society.

How does Summit achieve this?

Building on how children think, learn and behave and supporting them to develop friendships that foster a sense of connection, security, and build self-confidence. At Summit, children’s creative abilities are nurtured; allowing them to express themselves, understand others, and navigate complex social & emotional climates.

Our programming is designed to balance cognitive, social, and emotional development and behaviour; it’s not a matter of left or right brain, but rather the whole child. 

  • Coaching
  • Relationships
  • Evidence-based Programming
  • Community Resources
  • Whole Child/Whole Body

Health & Safety

We know you’re worried about keeping your child stays safe and healthy.  We got you.

Our team is not only keeping up with the current health guidelines but we’re exceeding them.  Here’s just a few things we’re doing:  

  • DAILY health assessments for ALL staff prior to entering the building
  • FREQUENT hand-washing and hand sanitizer
  • HOUSEKEEPING staff roam the building to ensure all high-touch surfaces are cleaned often
  • REGULAR cleaning of the playground structure
  • nightly SANITIZING of toys, games, chairs, tables and sports equipment

It’s different at the top

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.

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
