Located just down the street from Lake Ontario, BrightPath Academy The Beach, previously known as ABC Academy, sits on the corner of Kippendavies and Queen Street, with easy access to the streetcar, QEW, and across the street from a local public school. BrightPath Academy The Beach prides itself on its many longstanding staff. Our educators are dedicated, hard-working, and passionate about what they do.
The daycare centre is fully licensed and offers 183 spaces for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 13 years of age. Our location is the only BrightPath Academy child care centre that can accommodate a ½ day preschool program and before and after school care. BrightPath Academy The Beach’s primary objective for all of our preschoolers is to be kindergarten ready to support literacy and math. We aim to have our graduates so familiar with the basics and expectations of kindergarten that the adjustment will be seamless.
We offer a Before & After Kinder program, which is enrolled in CWELCC that includes morning & afternoon snacks, full days on PD days, Christmas and March break along with Extra Curricular Clubs in the evenings.
We are also offering part-time Summer Camp from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Academy Club Summer Camp is enrolled in CWELCC.
