Our engaging Junior Primary program enables our youngest students to learn and grow in a play-based learning environment. With active learning at the core of everything we do, our students develop an early love of learning.
We ensure your child is safe, healthy, actively engaged, supported and challenged to reach their potential. Our Junior Primary motto is ‘playing to learn and learning to play’, with an emphasis on developing social skills, imaginative play, cooperative play, motor skills and independence. Our students are able to express themselves in a safe and positive way.
Junior Primary students participate in a variety of lessons and activities to develop the whole child. Focus areas include independence, self-regulation, speaking, listening, reading, writing, mathematical awareness and scientific exploration. Our phonics program introduces students to books to support reading readiness, promote early literacy and foster a love of reading. Students also become involved in physical education, art and French.
The program is available to 3-5 year-olds, turning 4 by December 31st of the given academic year. Summit also offers part-time Junior Primary programs that address primary readiness outcomes to ensure students are advanced from an educational perspective.
