Who We Are

Built On A Passion For Early Childhood Education

We believe that the first six years of life are truly the miracle years. Early interactions don’t just create context; they directly affect the way the brain develops. It’s critical that we provide children with a quality learning environment during these essential years. Everything the Little Scholars Montessori team does is built around this simple but profound truth. We are dedicated to furthering your child’s self-creating process.

A Proud Member of the BrightPath Kids Family

The story of BrightPath began under a different name. Originating in May of 2010, Edleun (Education Learning Universe) was formed with the acquisition of eleven child care centres in Alberta. With the vision of raising the standard of child care in Canada, Edleun began a pattern of rapid growth over the next three years, acquiring a total of 49 centres.

Post-acquisition, many changes were implemented in these existing facilities, including physical upgrades and product improvements. Educational curriculum and programming was rolled out at all age levels and a nutritious menu plan was introduced. Over the summer of 2013, Edleun transitioned to its new name: BrightPath.

Our growth has been both organic and acquisition-based in nature. In addition to our recently purpose-built BrightPath centres including Chestermere, Clayton Hills, Cochrane, Creekside, Sage Hill, Richmond and St. Johns in both Alberta and British Columbia, we have been fortunate enough to adopt additional marquee brands over the years including Brite Studios in Calgary, Manotick Montessori in Manotick, Queens Montessori Academy in Markham, three Children’s House Montessori centres in Windsor, four Little Scholars Montessori centres in Ottawa and 20 Peekaboo Child Care centres across Ontario.

What Sets Us Apart

Our curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori method centers on self-directed activity, collaborative play and individual development. By presenting children with the power of choice, we help instil in them a strong sense of self, a desire to learn and a natural self-discipline.

Our early childhood educators are committed to implementing our Montessori curriculum in a supportive and positive environment, nurturing a lifelong love of learning. With a strong foundation of education and experience, our staff help foster each child’s individuality and create a home-away-from-home experience.

We firmly believe in open, two-way communication between parents and our centres. In addition to quarterly newsletters, open houses, monthly observation summaries, parent evenings and our open-door policy for parents, we also offer our proprietary app, BrightPath Connect™, to help keep you up-to-date on your child’s progress.

Your child’s brain and body need fuel to learn and grow. We have partnered with a Registered Nutritionist to create a menu that helps establish healthy eating habits in your child and allows them to thrive. Every day, your child receives two snacks and a hot lunch, all prepared in-house from fresh ingredients.
