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.

Taryn has been in the Early Childhood Education field since 2006. Her teaching philosophy is strongly influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach and the idea that all children learn through play, based on their interests. Taryn has been at BrightPath Cochrane since it opened in 2015, starting out in the classroom, moving up to Assistant Director and now Centre Director.
Taryn’s favourite part about being the Centre Director is that every day is different and always keeps her on her toes. She enjoys getting to know all the children and their unique personalities and perspectives. When she gets to see the children’s faces light up after an accomplishment, it’s like a reward in itself! She really appreciates being able to connect with all the families and plan events where the families can connect with each other. She believes that the key to her successful team dynamic is working with her educators to find their strengths, then letting them flourish in the classroom. She enjoys finding new techniques, strategies and ideas for the classrooms to help the children really engage in what they are learning about.
Taryn was born and raised in rural Manitoba. Growing up in the country, she discovered the importance of children spending time with nature and the outdoors. She moved to Cochrane from Winnipeg in 2015 with her husband and two children, but they are still passionate Winnipeg Jets fans!
What our families think about BrightPath Creekside
"My daughter is very resistant to change. I was naturally worried when I started taking her to brightpath creekside over a year ago. The staff was amazing at putting my worries and fears to rest. They were very patient and kind with my daughter during her intial days. They go out of their way to make the child comfortable. I would like to esp thank Sammy (for giving her extra hugs during her lunch when my daughter was sad), Ms. Sonia and Ms. Milada (for sitting next to her and patting her to sleep during nap times), Ms. Shayla for listening to my concerns and doing her best to make my daughter so comfortable. I highly recommend this place."
"BrightPath Creekside has been home to our girls since the day they opened almost 4 years ago. My older daughter started here at 17 months old and has learned so much in the time she has been attending. You are greeted with a smile every morning, the teachers are all wonderful and every single employee know both our girls by name. My now 2 year old runs into the room every morning and doesn't even look back at Mommy & Daddy. I leave there in the morning confident in the care our girls receive and I couldn't imagine leaving them with anyone else. They learn so much in the Frog Street Program, and my oldest daughter is more than ready to start Kindergarten thanks to BrightPath Creekside. They will be transporting her to the school everyday and I have no doubt she is in the best care possible. The Director and Assistant Director are wonderful to deal with. They are very accommodating to your needs and just want the best for the children. We love BrightPath Creekside and can never say enough good things about them! We look forward to both of our girls growing and learning with them!"
