What Sets Us Apart

Our award-winning curriculum was formed through in-depth research into early childhood learning and development. A blend of play-based (Frog Street) and child-led (Emergent) curriculums, all activities are hands-on, child-guided and exceed provincial early learning frameworks.

Our dedicated and passionate early childhood educators deliver an innovative, engaging and proven curriculum that ignites a love of learning and inspires and encourages individuality in every BrightPath child. Their nurturing and attentive approach offers each child a home-away-from-home experience.

Two-way communication is important. Monthly newsletters, curriculum nights, parent interviews, open houses and our proprietary app (BrightPath Connect™) are designed to increase the interaction between our centres and families.

Children need nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Believing that food choices throughout childhood fuel life long eating habits, our menu is crafted by a Registered Nutritionist and prepared in-house daily and reflects those beliefs.

About The Centre

We are currently accepting registrations for our new Montessori Preschool Classroom, opening September 2019. The Montessori method uses self-directed activity, collaborative play and hands-on learning to develop independent thinking, self-awareness, motivation and discipline. We encourage the children in our daycare to learn and grow at their own pace; discovering the world around them firsthand and developing their own interests.

Located in the northwest corner of the Yankee Valley Crossing shopping complex on the corner of Yankee Valley Boulevard and Yankee Valley Crossing, BrightPath Airdrie can be found “under the clock” near Pizza 73.

 

Offering 146 spaces for child care (6 weeks to 5 years) and before and after school care (6 to 12 years), the centre is also fully licensed and accredited.

The daycare centre features big windows and high ceilings, making it feel airy and bright but still comfortable and warm. Creating a feeling of comfort and hominess is the staff’s first priority, with a true focus of making everyone part of the centre family.

BrightPath Airdrie is proud to be heavily involved in its community through regular initiatives such as food drives, toy drives and a number of fundraising activities for various causes instilling in our children a sense of helping others and extending support to those in need.

Meet The Centre Director

Sheila has been working with children since 2004 in various settings such as day homes, day cares as well as the school system as an aid. She received her Early Childcare Education diploma from Bow Valley College through their online program. She believes that working on her diploma a little at a time made her a better educator because she was able to put new skills into practice as she learned them. As she knows first hand what it is like to have a child who needs extra support, her passion is working with these children to help them succeed. Sheila has been with BrightPath since 2015, starting out in the classroom, moving up to Assistant Director and now Centre Director.

Sheila’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is meeting all the wonderful families and children that come through the centre doors. She loves to support and help the staff and families in any way she can while creating a fun and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Sheila strongly believes that every child is special, has the right to grow, no matter what obstacles they face. As an educator, she believes it is her duty to build up the self-esteem of children, helping them to discover just how wonderful they are.

Shelia and her husband have four wonderful children and have been living in Airdrie for since 2011. She loves to be outdoors camping and working with her beautiful horses.
