BrightPath Barrie Child Care Centre

Previously known as Peekaboo Mapleview our daycare is focused on planting and growing our own natural elements both inside and outside of our daycare. This allows children to learn and discover nature and the world around them. Our daycare’s gym allows us freedom even during inclement weather days. We promote children’s independence and foster a love of learning in each and every child that walks through our daycare's doors.

Located in the south end of Barrie, BrightPath Barrie is situated in a plaza near the corner of Veterans Drive and Mapleview Drive, just minutes away from Highway 400 making it highly convenient for drop off and pick up. The centre has a large parking lot with attached sidewalks and secure front door complete with key code entry and the playground has a padlock gate.

What our families think about BrightPath Barrie

"I would like to share my experience with Peekaboo Mapleview; with special mention to Stephanie, Ashley and Debra for their kindness, compassion & patience with my daughter (and myself) over the last year. Beginning at Peekaboo was easier than I had ever imagined, their communication is excellent, and the VOI was especially comforting while I was at work. It was amazing to see the ladies working non-stop with the kids each day, and I am astonished at their energy. On the drive home each day, it was evident that my daughter had learned something new, and had a blast doing so… She looked forward to every single day, and misses them dearly since our move. I recommend this centre to everyone, as I firmly believe it is a FUN and SAFE environment for a Toddler or Preschooler."

"Our son attends BrightPath full-time. His initial transition into the centre after being with me for his first 13 months was difficult, to say the least. The staff took the time to provide me with the assurance I needed to feel comfortable and confident in leaving him. They welcomed me to drop in if I felt the need to do so, sent me pictures, and gave him what he needed to feel secure in his new environment. It took a few weeks and he started to love going to daycare. Now he walks in like he owns the place! The relationships he’s made with the staff and the other children in the centre nurture his confidence, competence and curiosity! BrightPath is an environment where children experience a sense of belonging, expression, engagement and well-being and that is exactly how learning happens!"
