Welcome to St. Teresa of Avila Preschool in Summit, New Jersey!  Our school is a warm and loving place where children are nurtured and encouraged to explore, learn and grow.  Our experienced and dedicated teachers are passionate about providing a supportive and caring environment that helps your child reach their full potential.  We understand the importance of creating a safe and wholesome space for your child, and we work tirelessly to make sure that each day is filled with fun, learning, and lots of love.


The first school at St. Teresa's was opened in 1881 by the first pastor, Rev. W.M. Wigger. It was moved to become a convent and the current school building was built in 1905. The Sisters of Charity staffed the school until 1973. A lay staff ran the school until it closed in 1982, due to declining enrollment.​On September 10, 2001, an Early Childhood Center began in the newly renovated building. It was renovated to pass State Licensing and to be suited for preschool children. It has also been made handicap accessible for all who may use the building; adults and children alike.
