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.

Vardeep Thind, Centre Director
BrightPath Bowness

Meet The Centre Director

Vardeep has a Bachelor in Arts and a Masters in Psychology, both attained in India. After she moved to Calgary in 2009, Vardeep received her diploma in Child and Youth Care Counselling from Mount Royal University. She started working for BrightPath in 2012 at our Marlborough centre.

Vardeep’s favourite part about working as the Centre Director is seeing the children get so excited when they achieve their milestones and watching them grow and thrive. She enjoys working alongside educators that share the same passion. She loves communicating and getting to know all the families at her centre.

Vardeep hails from the beautifully diverse country of India, with amazing terrain that extends from Himalaya to the Indian coast. During her school days, she played handball and lawn tennis and is the middle child of three. She moved to Canada in 2009, where she worked at a Tim Hortons for a year just to gain the experience and learn more about the Canadian culture but still keeping her native tongue of Punjabi and Hindi.

She now lives in northeast Calgary with her family and 5-year-old son. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, reading, camping, the outdoors and, when she can, loves to travel to exotic places. Vardeep is a very social person and volunteers within the community to communicate and connect with others.
