Children’s Classes

Character Education for Small Children – Ages 3-5

The Character Education for Young Children has pushed the learning capabilities to the maximum level. Often, classroom teachers and administrators are stunned the children learn so much in such a short time.

Imagine walking into a classroom of three to five year olds, and ten lessons later, those children are holding a knife and fork correctly, cutting and eating in the appropriate manner and feeling very proud of their accomplishment. By learning how to properly shake hands, make introductions, handle an emergency, be respectful, and display proper table manners students will have the confidence necessary to succeed. Confidence soars at an early age, as these little ones learn skills that help them throughout their lives. Character Education for Young Children is a major learning tool for success.

Of the upmost importance to The Summit is keeping the parents informed on each child’s progress. An invitation is sent to each parent to attend the Graduation, Lunch and Certificate Event.
