Early Years Programming

Little Summit Daycare

Little Summit Daycare is a $10.00/day childcare centre located in Cranbrook. Two programs are offered the first for infants and toddlers from birth to 36 months (3 years), and the second for children from 3-5 years.

At Little Summit, we believe that children learn through play.  We build on the children’s interests by providing activities and experiences they enjoy.  You will often see us out and about exploring our neighbourhood, playing at our local parks, visiting the public library to borrow books, or visiting the pet store to see the animals.  We believe each child and their family is unique and we strive to meet everyone’s needs.  

Space is limited in these programs. We are licensed for 12 spaces in the 0-3 program and 16 spaces in the 3-5 program.
