Little Hand

WELCOME

Congrats on your Admission!

On behalf of the Team, welcome to the family. We are thrilled to add you and your family to the tribe. As a small, family-owned business, we are incredibly grateful to do what we love. It’s your support that allows us to provide a warm and loving community for hundreds of kiddos, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the opportunity to serve you and your families childcare needs.


At our Academy, we like to think of ourselves as an extension of your family and want you to feel “homey" when you are at the Center. For this reason, we have dedicated this page to catching you up to speed with all things The Summit Academy. Read below for more information as you begin your journey!

NEXT STEPS

  1. Read the Parent Handbook of Policies and Procedures

  2. Infant Program Only - please complete the Individual Care Plan. This form can be completed digitally and will help our teachers get to know your child. It will provide us with their schedule, feeding, diapering, and sleeping routines among other useful information. 

  3. Complete the Enrollment form and the Childcare Agreement / Authorizations after reading the Parent Handbook. You must create a Brightwheel account to access the forms. In order to secure your spot, this Enrollment Form is due within three days from receiving this email. 

  4. After we receive your paperwork, you will receive an invite via text message and email to our Communication platform called Brightwheel. Please follow the instructions to download the app. This app will provide you with the day-to-day communications for your little one and will also be the method to check them in and out of the Center on a daily basis. You will then receive an invite to set up billing through Brightwheel. Please make sure to enter your payment preferences within three days of receiving the invite.

  5. Provide your child’s / children’s most recent well-being summary and up-to-date immunizations from the doctor. This can be emailed or dropped-off at the Center on your first day. We must have all records up-to-date to maintain enrollment and meet the State's Health requirements. An immunization cheat sheet from the Center of Disease Control can be found here for your reference so that you are aware of the immunization schedule. You can also find the General Health Appraisal form here.

  6. Billing - Email us your billing preference: monthly or bi-weekly.

  7. Review your Welcome Letter below. This Letter provides an outline of the Program in addition to the Supply List - a very important list of items needed at the Center on the first day.

  8. Get to know your child’s teacher as listed in your Welcome email under our Team's Section below.

  9. On the first day of school, you will be provided an Emergency Contact Card to be completed. This Contact Card should list any authorized persons to pick-up and drop-off your child. Please keep in mind, your emergency contacts will also need to download the app Brightwheel for access to pick-up your child.

  10. And lastly, please email or print a 4x6 picture of your child and family. Our classroom pictures become an important activity for your kiddos social/emotional development. We’d love to add your kiddo to the group of family pictures. 

PROGRAMS

As we ramp up for your admission / transition to our Program, we want to provide you with a Welcome Letter to help you prepare for your next phase. The Letter below provides an outline of the Program in addition to the classroom Supply List. The Supply List is a very important list of items needed for your child at the Center. Please review the Welcome Letter based on your child's enrollment Program.
