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."

Junior Toddler - 12 months to 19 months

The toddler program at Summit Start is designed to create a safe environment where toddlers are encouraged to learn, grow and explore using all of their senses. To enable this wonderful time of growth in toddlers, our teachers provide numerous sensory experiences each and every day. Research has clearly shown that rapid development is happening in the first two years of life. From this, we knew it was essential that we provide stimulating activities to encourage optimal development at this age.

Senior Toddler - 19 months to 3 years

The Senior Toddler program at Summit Start is a preparation for our three year old preschool program and focuses on developing independence , self help skills and fine motor skills.

Our program consists of : pencil control, scissor control, preschool concepts, math, language, science/sensory, large motor, dramatic play, families and cultures, practical life, toilet training, fine motor and creative art.

We will also start to introduce preschool concepts such as shapes and colours. Language and math are also an important part of this program.

Social skills are starting to emerge and our summit family will use “teachable moments” to help with this growth process.

Preschool - 3 years to 4.5 years

Summit Start’s preschool program promotes a balance of positive education and play experiences.

  • Pre-writing skills (pencil control and tracing)
  • Letters (taught in Jolly Phonics order)
  • Numbers (counting, matching sets)
  • Concepts (colours, shapes, cutting, matching and opposites)

Each new accomplishment will fill your child with pride and the desire to learn more once they realize, “I can do it!” Our program makes it easy and exciting for children to learn.

Summit Launch: Kindergarten Extended-Day Enhancement Program

Summit Start’s kindergarten program is one of the best you can find, as well as extremely convenient for families who need a full day of child care.

Auditory skills, reading and writing, visual discrimination, art projects, letter concepts and math awareness are consolidated into this multi-sensory, child-oriented program. Weekly themes, with related activities, assist in developing your child’s knowledge base, attention span and effective communication skills.

Summit Start’s Discovery Areas, located throughout the building, will challenge your child’s keen and curious mind. The building includes: The Ruckus Room, Giggle Pit, and the Adventure Park.

The Summit Start family will encourage and model courteous and thoughtful behaviour as your child begins to develop solid and meaningful friendships. Our staff use their experience and training to ensure that each child’s day is balanced with physical activities, learning, love and most of all, fun!

In preparation for grade one, Summit Start’s kindergarten program provides a more school-like structured setting. The low caregiver to child ratios experienced by your child at Summit Start will give him or her a huge advantage. Your child will be given the time and attention required to provide a solid foundation for a lifetime of continued learning.
