Thank you for your interest in Peekaboo Centres. We are now a proud member of BrightPath kids. Don’t worry, we brought our fantastic teams with us, same management and same staff to serve you and your family.

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.

Meet The Centre Director

Eileen has been working in the child care field for an amazing 38 years. She obtained her Nursey Nurse of the Education Board (NNEB) from Scotland. After she moved to Canada, she graduated with an Early Childhood Education Diploma from George Brown College. She has been part of BrightPath Barrie since the centre opened in 2009.

Eileen’s favourite part about being a Centre Director is building relationships with the children. She loves how that relationship extends to the families and enjoys interacting with them at drop off and pick up.

Eileen emigrated from Scotland in 1986 and started her Canadian adventure working as a nanny for an amazing family in Toronto. During that time, she met her husband and had two wonderful children who are now young adults. Eileen is an avid hockey and tennis fan. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, watching movies and spending time with her family. Eileen loves to travel and enjoys exploring new locations and countries.
