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. 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.
