You Have To See It To Believe It!
Welcome to our NAEYC accredited preschool! We are committed to every student’s personal and academic growth from the moment they enter as preschoolers, until the day they graduate eighth grade as young adults. This is why Summit is one of few preschools in Phoenix that is nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our preschool curriculum is research-based, developmentally appropriate, and taught by educated and experienced teachers.
Learning is fun with our hands-on, experiential, play-based preschool curriculum. Children gain skills above and beyond those needed to thrive in kindergarten. They also develop a joy of learning and inquiry. We were chosen by Ahwatukee Foothills News voters as one of the best preschools 5 years in a row!
The youngest preschoolers must turn three before February 1st, and be fully independent in the bathroom.
Children ages 18 to 36 months and their adult companion are welcome to join Summit’s Toddler Discoveries class. This program is a developmentally appropriate, fun-filled experience which meets for two hours each week in the heart of Summit’s preschool. New classes begin each fall, spring, and summer. More information and registration link is below.
From a parent: As a former Kindergarten teacher and now a Full-Time faculty and Administrator in Higher Education, I was very “picky” in looking for a school to send my children to. From the moment I toured Summit School of Ahwatukee, I was highly impressed. The classrooms are rich with resources; the teachers are caring and committed to educating the students. Our oldest son attended preschool this year and we have been amazed by all of the wonderful things he has learned and experienced. Next year, he will be attending Kindergarten and we are so excited for his experience at Summit to continue, as well as our second son’s experience in preschool to begin. I highly recommend Summit to anyone looking for an all around high quality education plus so much more! Tracy, Parent of a preschooler, 2011-12
