Summit School of Ahwatukee is proud to partner with Quality First, First Things First, and the United Way. Through these programs, Summit can offer $6,000 needs-based scholarships, enabling children to enroll in Summit’s NAEYC, nationally accredited preschool. Summit is also ranked as a five star program by Quality First, the highest recognition awarded to the best Arizona preschools.
Preschool scholarships are for Summit’s academic school year, August 9, 2017 through May 25th, 2018, for a five day program. School hours are 8am – 3:15pm. The scholarships are based on family income, with limits set by the state. Qualifying families are responsible to pay the tuition not covered by the scholarship, and the cost of before and after school care, if needed.
Learning in Summit’s NAEYC accredited Preschool is fun and enriching. The developmental, emergent, play-based curriculum utilizes Teaching Strategies Gold objectives for teaching and learning. The curriculum is research-based, developmentally appropriate, and taught by experienced teachers, who nurture cognitive, social and emotional growth.
Preschool also includes classes in art, Spanish, music, tumbling and library. Preschoolers can range in age from 30 months to 5 years old, but must be fully independent in the bathroom.
