BrightPath Creekside 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.

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.
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!"
