Located in the beautiful West Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia, Summit Children’s Program’s (SCP) is more than a preschool, daycare or childcare program; it is a community and Mt. Airy institution. For more than forty years, SCP has provided a unique, safe and nurturing place for children to become part of a larger community while they learn, socialize, and explore the world around them.

SCP’s childcare and daycare program, for children ages 18 months to 5 years, cultivates children’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and creative growth through the use of play. Our well educated, experienced and dedicated staff engage children in child-directed learning centers. This hands-on approach gives each student the opportunity to improve language and problem solving skills, and strengthen friendships while building and developing autonomy and healthy self-esteem. They only have one childhood. It goes quickly. We want to do all we can to make it the best! .

Summit After Care (SAC), SCP’s childcare for school age children ages 5 to 12, offers a reliable place for children before school, after school, during many school holidays and all day during the summer at Camp Summit. SAC’s before and after school care programs and summer camp are distinctive because of the exceptional space available for diverse activities. Our quiet areas are great for completing homework or taking a break. We offer large and small group activities in art, drama, dance, cooking, and anything of interest to the children. We have a large gymnasium and outdoor enclosed wooded playground for exercise and exploration.
