Daycare Programs


All of our daycare programs run at a high capacity and currently have a waitlist.

Summit Community Services Society has been challenged by staff shortages in the daycare field recently. This is not just a local problem, but a provincial and national concern, and we must continue to advocate for change in the way funding for daycare is allocated. Despite all the challenges, the staff of all our daycares continue to provide excellent, quality care for the children in our programs.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in working in or training to work in the Early Childhood Education field, please contact our Executive Director at 250-489-3114 ext. 221.   

Cranbrook Programs

Little Summit Daycare

Two programs are offered the first for infant toddlers from birth to 36 months, and the second for children from 3-5 years. These programs are both very popular and have wait lists for both programs. The 3-5 program involves many staff-led activities for the children, such as using the city bus system to take the children to the public library to borrow books or to the pet store to visit the animals.
