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

BrightPath Clayton Hills is not easily missed. It is the tri-coloured, two-story building on the corner of 72nd Avenue and 192nd Street that is easily identified as a child care facility. The building has a back parking lot that provides plenty of parking for pick up and drop off. With its entrance at ground level as well as an elevator inside, access to the building is simple by both stroller and wheelchair. The building is secured, and key fobs are provided to current families, otherwise the lobby is monitored by an admin staff at all times who will greet and vet all who request access. Extended opening hours, from 6:00am to 6:00pm, provide an additional convenience to working families.

The centre offers 206 licensed spaces for child care (6 weeks to 5 years) and before and after school care (6 to 12 years). Although it is large and appears academic at first glance, the centre works hard to be warm and homey. Each room is themed and named based on a beautiful part of British Columbia such as the Tiny Tadpoles, the Lily Pad, and the Treehouse rooms as well as Bear’s Hollow – the Centre Director office.

A full-service kitchen provides a daily warm lunch and two snacks, prepared fresh onsite. Finally, the play yards are truly special with six separate spaces that are dedicated to each age group and provide suitable learning materials to allow children to play and explore in a safe and age-appropriate setting.

Meet The Centre Director

Sharon started working in the education field in 1992 and has been part of the British Columbia BrightPath team since its inception in 2011. Sharon has a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in psychology and an extended minor in linguistics from Simon Fraser University. She earned her Early Childhood Educator’s license from Northern Lights College and Douglas College.

Sharon’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is having the ability to engage with children of all ages throughout the day. When children take developmental risks in order to challenge their skill level, Sharon recognizes and praises the child on these personal challenges. Interacting with the family is important to her as Sharon views the child as an extension of the family’s needs, goals and interests. Being a natural leader, Sharon likes to think “outside the box” and apply unique activities that foster learning.

Sharon has been married for twenty-one years and has an eighteen year old son, whom came to work with her from a young toddler to age twelve. In her leisure time Sharon and her family have enjoyed camping and recently discovered sailing lessons. Look for Sharon and her family actively exploring the open sea!
