September 2022

Blind Bay MunchkinsThe Outsiders Updates

September has arrived too fast as always. Our skin is sun kissed and we have shared many smiles and laughs as we explored the Shuswap. During our many adventures this summer we have hiked, biked, had a very successful lemonade stand, gone to the outdoor pools, rivers, beaches, parks, water parks, water slides, farms, the wildlife park and honestly the list could go on and on. It has been an eventful summer and we had a blast doing it with our Summit crew- they are honestly some of the best kids around.  

With September being here and the return to school tomorrow we wanted to go over a few reminders for those of us who remain with us for the school year along with welcoming some new faces. 

We are looking forward to getting to know all the new Kindy kiddos joining us this year, we hope to help your family have a smooth transition into the school year and give your child a safe, fun place to play after school.  

Unfortunately, with all the different school schedules we are unable to accompany kindergarten gradual entry. If you child is entering kindergarten- their first day at Summit will be Sept 19th. This is a pro- d day and a chance for us to spend the day with your child, developing a relationship and prepping them for their first day of after school pick up 😊 

 We are open from 7:30-5:30 on Pro D days and ask that your child is dropped off before 9am as we head out on an adventure. Sept 20th we will pick up your child from school as per schedule. 

Solanna and Jenessa will continue to be the friendly faces greeting your children upon pick up. 

Please send your child an extra change of clothes to keep at Summit in a Ziploc bag LABELED with their name. 

An inside pair of shoes or slippers can be kept at Summit as well- LABELED 😊   

If your child is absent from school and will not be attending Summit, we ask that you text the Summit cell at 250-803-6306. If your child is not at their designated pick-up spot after school- we send out a search party.  

If your child is absent and you have not informed us there will be a 5$ fee added to your invoice. This covers the search party! We give you one freebie 😊 

If your child is in grade one or higher, we will pick them up from school on the first day going forward Sept 7th.   

We will slowly be doing a name change in the near future- unfortunately our online presence is confusing for another center in Calgary that also has a summit child care program. So, we will be switching over to “The Outsiders.” Don’t you worry, we will still be providing the same great program with some awesome new swag. 

We will be closed on September 30th for National Truth and Reconciliation Day. 

We thank you for entrusting us with your children, we enjoy every day we spend with them.
