Diakonia: DBA New Summit Preschool & Wilson Christian Preschool
Diakonia (Greek for service) is a tax-exempt non-profit that operates two Colorado Springs preschools. Our commitment is to provide the highest-quality learning experience to ALL children. Our programs are developmentally appropriate, focusing on each young child’s cognitive, social-emotional, and physical growth in a loving, nurturing environment. Our primary goal is to ensure that each child who completes our preschool program develops the skills necessary to successfully enter and succeed in the public-school system. To that end, we provide a preschool experience that is second to none!
Mission Statement: Diakonia serves families to enable children to reach their full potential.
Vision Statement: Every child becomes a productive member of their communities.
Values: Involvement, Commitment, Compassion, Excellence (ICCE)
We foster wholesome social relationships — and healthy ways of being in the world — by providing ample time for children to interact with their peers — learning empathy, sharing, self-regulation and cooperation.
We offer a sliding scale tuition assistance program based on family income and number of family members.
Hear it from our parents!
“We found New Summit when researching schools for our kindergartener. We were so excited to see a school curriculum that focused on TEACHING our student instead of simply preparing them for test after test. The staff and volunteers are amazing and have treated us like family. We are so glad we found New Summit!”
“We are excited for what this school will offer our family in the way of education and character building for our children. We LOVE the philosophy of Literacy First as a gateway to building knowledge and wisdom. As a family with special education needs we greatly appreciate the mindset that EVERY child deserves a quality education and support system to succeed in society. We look forward to working alongside this school in the education of our children and to building a community that values a lifelong love of learning. ”
