Pre-school Child Care

Pre-School 3 years old

From the ages of 3 through 4, children become ready for more challenging learning that will help prepare them for school. Summit Kids Academy makes learning fun for your 3 and 4 year-olds with our Pre-K program.

We’ve always found that children learn best through play. That’s why we use a theme-based approach that stimulates your child’s curiosity and engages kids in the subject at hand. Our interactive curriculum helps preschool children develop skills in literacy, problem-solving, mathematical thinking and creativity.

Summit Kids prides itself on a philosophy of focusing on each child as an individual, allowing kids to be the architects of their own development by including both structured and unstructured activities, and adapting activities to provide a better challenge.

Our teachers are Early Childhood professionals, with a gift for working with and understanding kids, and a true dedication to their profession. Teachers not only hold a college degree or a CDA (Child Development Associate) credential, but are also required to complete continuing education classes each year. Like our students, our teachers are also excited about learning!

If you’d like to find out more about how Summit Kids Academy’s Pre-K program can help your child along the path to becoming a lifelong learner, or if you’d like to meet our amazing teachers, call (561) 432-3577 or contact us online. We’d love to welcome you and your preschooler to the Summit Kids Academy family!
