Our Teachers – Longevity, Loyalty to Your Family’s Needs
Our staff is made up of individuals with an intrinsic gift of working with children.
We are committed to hiring only the most qualified educators to lead our classrooms.
Our hiring process verifies the references, education, experience, state, local, and FBI background checks for all staff members. But as important as their credentials are, a teacher at Summit Kids Academy needs to share our core values in relation to early childhood education. Love and kindness towards the child, respect for the partnership with parents, a belief in excellence and innovation are the cornerstone to all Summit team members.
All lead teachers hold college degrees or a CDA with plans for continuing their education in the Early Childhood field.
Teacher’s assistants hold a minimum of the state required 45-hour childcare certificate, and also have plans for furthering their education. In addition, at Summit Kids Academy, it is not only the children who are learning but the teachers too! All our teachers participate in educational training programs that far exceed any local or state standards. There are always new ways to tackle today’s issues and we feel it is best to provide our teachers will all the tools possible to help children develop into the best possible versions of themselves.

The teachers are excellent
I like the friendly environment at Summit Kids Academy. The teachers are excellent, the school is always clean, and of course has great administration. Our daughter has learned more social skills, concentration, focus, and last but not least communication skills.
All teachers are so friendly and especially Ms. Rachel is so understanding and loving for her. I like her behavior with parents; she knows how to treat kids just like a mommy.
I love the communication from Summit Kids Academy.
From the weekly newsletters to the Life Cubby blasts, I feel like I am connected with my child throughout the day. My child loves to count and read. He is always showing me how he does things at school, talking about his friends and his teachers. The teachers are great at greeting the kids in the morning. They really make each child feel like they have been waiting for them to arrive. It makes drop off very easy!
Love the Life Cubby and the video cameras in the classrooms.
I like that Summit Kids Academy has special activities that are done with the children like the Mini Chef Program. I also love the Life Cubby and the video cameras in the classrooms. They have a good selection of learning toys/books/puzzles in the classrooms. I believe the iPad lab is a great learning tool, my kids love to use them they thinks of them as games/fun, but they are actually learning a lot from them. Ms. Tasha is very calm and patient with the children. They get down on the kids level and help learning in a comfortable, safe way.
State of the art curriculum for my Pre-K son!
Summit Kids Academy is a top rated school with their state of the art curriculum for my Pre-K son. He was going to a different school at first and we changed him into this school and what an improvement. The facility is always kept clean and organized, they are always on schedule and the office staff is personal and friendly to each and every child there. My son was very shy, now since he has been at Summit Kids Academy he is very outgoing, extroverted and loves to learn. Ms. Lourdes and Ms. Tely are excellent in all areas of education. I highly recommend Summit Kids Academy. You won’t be disappointment. The security is amazing, and you can even watch your child throughout the day from your computer or phone very easy to set up and use.
I absolutely love my daughter’s school and feel so blessed to have found them.
The thing I love most about Summit Kids Academy is the partnership between parents and teachers! Any concern or idea I have is heard and embraced. I love that no one is ever too busy to talk with me. I love not having to worry when I’m at work and knowing that my child is receiving top level care from people who truly care about daughter as if she was their own.
My daughter is excited for school every day and is always happy when I pick her up! I can see she is being taught the essentials she will need when she starts school.
From ABCs to picking up after herself. These lessons are priceless! My goodness she was potty trained in a matter of 2 weeks! The different programs offered are a huge advantage as well.
My child’s teacher knows my daughter … genuinely. She knows what she likes to eat and what her favorite activities are. My daughter isn’t “lost” in a sea of children. She is being taught and loved! I absolutely love my daughter’s school and feel so blessed to have found them! It’s so hard to find genuinely good people who care for children. I consider them my family.
