Ruth Laeda

Ruth has a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, majoring in social sciences. She landed her first job as a secondary classroom teacher in the Philippines shortly after she graduated. In 2011, she migrated to Canada as a caregiver, and she now has two children, a 7-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl.

What Ruth enjoys most about being a Centre Director at BrightPath Early Learning and Child Care is having the opportunity to help children learn and thrive at an early age.

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!"
