Vision, Mission, Values

summit school district preschool program

Honor children.  Engage families.  Inspire educators.

Our Mission

The Summit School District Preschool Program promotes high quality, developmentally appropriate, inclusive early learning experiences for all children. We value building relationships with families to foster the growth and development of the whole child.  And we seek partnerships with organizations in our community dedicated to supporting young children and their families.   


Our Values

Children learn about their world through play and interactions with others.

Children deserve a quality childhood so they become joyful, lifelong learners, active contributors to healthy communities, and productive members of society.

Play is the mechanism for young children's learning. 

Children are competent and capable learners who can make a valuable contribution to their own, and other's, learning experiences.

Our Program

We are dedicated to fostering a child's creativity and curiosity and a life-long love of learning. Our curriculum focuses on active exploration and discovery as a means of supporting all areas of development: social-emotional, language, cognitive and physical. Building social and emotional skills is at the heart of everything we do. Our learning environments are designed to foster exploration and investigation, cultivate social learning opportunities,  and strengthen the sense community. Our teachers are highly qualified and dedicated early childhood educators.

We serve children who are not kindergarten age-eligible. Children who are three or four years old on or before October 1st of the school year you are applying for, are eligible to enroll in our program.
