Brenda has been in child care since 2007 when she started working in a day home in Winnipeg. She started her Early Childhood degree at the Red River College but then moved to Calgary in 2008 where she completed her correspondence Early Childhood Management Degree. During this time, she worked in the toddler room in a child care centre for three years, as a nanny for two years, then in the school-age program for three years before having her first child. Upon returning to the field, Brenda joined BrightPath Acadia where she worked her way up from the toddler room, to Assistant Director to now Centre Director.
Brenda’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is the interactions with the children and seeing the bonds families have with one another. She loves hearing the families share stories and interacting. Brenda believes the atmosphere of a child care centre is of the utmost importance; where the child’s happiness, growth, safety and well-being are top priority.
Brenda loves the outdoors and likes to go camping and hiking with her husband, daughter and family dog. She also likes to travel and was married in India at a rooftop wedding overlooking the ocean.
Her favourite childhood memories are the times spent with family, especially her grandparents. She hopes that at her centre, she can also create such long-lasting memories for the children and their families.
What our families think about BrightPath Acadia
"Our son is going there 5 days a week for almost 1 year. He is really happy over there and is always asking to go back to the daycare and most of the time, he doesn't want to go back home at the end of the day (which is generally a good sign 🙂 ). The teachers are very nice towards the kids and we can feel that when our son "tells" what he did during his day. It's a great moment every end of the day 🙂 We also like the daily report we receive via the app or by email , the regular pictures we receive and also the different updates from the director Ms. Brenda. The program (toddler) is very diversified with themes and we can feel that our son is learning many stuff over there. The nutrition provided is also diversified which is really appreciated. Anyway, our son went to 3 daycares (because of relocation) and even though the 2 others were also good, this daycare is definitely the one we prefer and we are happy to see our kid growing in this environment. All the team and Ms. Brenda are doing great!"
"My husband and are very satisfied with BrightPath Acadia. Our daughter, who is turning 5 years old soon, has been going to this centre since she was 1 year old and has truly grown and thrived here. We like all of the teachers and the director as well. My daughter absolutely love her current teacher. In summary, over the years BrightPath Acadia has had an excellent staff, has provided my daughter positive guidance, friendly environment, it is clean and orderly and has given peace of mind to my husband and I. Thank you!"
