BrightPath Academy Wanless Park, previously known as ABC Academy, is located at 18 and 20 Melrose Ave., just off of Yonge Street in the Yonge and Lawrence area. Our child care centre has been located in these two houses, side-by-side, since 2007 and has spaces for 84 children between the ages of 4 months to 4 years old.
We offer a play-based approach that fosters independence and teaches and encourages the children to experiment with play, explore, and inquire about the world around them. We offer many enrichment programs such as French with Madame Aleks, X Movement Music and Dance, the Jolly Phonics program, WeeMove, and Yoga and Mindfulness programs.

Jennifer Halliwell graduated with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Algonquin College and has been working in child care for over 20 years in classroom and management positions.
Her favourite part about being the Centre Director at BrightPath Academy, previously known as ABC Academy Wanless Park is supporting and guiding the children’s educational journeys and providing a strong foundation for all their future learning. She also enjoys fostering continuous learning for the staff and helping them grow and develop their practice so they can give the best start in life to the children in our care.
Jennifer has two grown children, one in high school and the other in university, she doesn't get much time with them, but when they do get together, they love to travel and have adventures.
