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

Tucked in the corner between Symons Valley Road and Symons Valley Parkway on the north end of the Creekside Shopping Centre, BrightPath Creekside is one of our premier centres in Calgary. Accessible through the third entrance by the Shell Gas Station and CIBC Bank (across from Kincora Glen Road), the centre services the neighbourhoods of Kincora and Evanston and is a sister centre to our BrightPath Sage Hill location which is only 5 minutes away.

The bright and welcoming centre is fully licensed and accredited and offers 247 spots ranging from child care for 6-week to 5-year olds as well as before and after school care for 6 to 12-year olds. Arranged over three floors, the centre has over 20,000 square feet of space dedicated to learning, fun and friendship. Easily accessible by stroller or wheelchair via ramp and elevator, the centre provides plenty of parking in a quiet corner of the shopping centre.

Active time is spent in play yards on the side and back of the centre which are situated even with the lower centre level and so provide a cozy hideout from traffic above. When the weather is bad, outdoor play is diverted to the indoor gym to play and expend all of that extra energy.

Meet The Centre Director

Shayla has been working with children since 2011, has a certificate in Early Childhood Education and is currently working on getting her diploma. She has completed many workshops and seminars pertaining to child development, speech development and special needs, most of which she attended in British Columbia. Shayla started with BrightPath in 2017.

Shayla’s favourite part about working as a Centre Director is opportunity to meet and interact with the families of all backgrounds. She interacts and trains with staff on a daily basis to ensure that quality care is given to the children every day. She tries to find new outlooks and inspiration each day to bring to the classrooms.

Shayla is from Surrey, BC, known for its abundant green spaces, active lifestyle and like most major Canadian cities, diverse ethnic mosaic. Shayla is enjoying learning and exploring everything of what Calgary has to offer, including the famous Calgary Stampede, a fierce Roughnecks game and perhaps an afternoon of lazy river rafting down the Bow.

In her spare time, Shayla is a true student of life, who has a passion for trying anything and everything new as often as possible. Whenever she is not working, you can find Shayla spending her leisurely time with her family and friends, enjoying nature walks and parks with her amazing dog, baking various yummy treats or diving into a new craft or two.
