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 Deer Ridge is situated on the cusp of the two southeast communities of Deer Ridge and Queensland along Canyon Meadows Drive and across the street from the Atria Retirement Home. Walking distance from Deer Valley Market Place in one direction and Don Bosco and Wilma Hansen Schools in the other, the centre offers convenient access for families on their way to and from work.

This centre is highly community-focused and gets involved in various activities occurring around the neighbourhood. Children and staff plant a community garden in the summer, learning all about starting and planting seedlings, watering and caring for their plots, harvesting their produce and finally enjoying it prepared in their meals by their on-site cook. Throughout the year, they also visit the Seniors Home across the street, engaging the residents during holidays such as Halloween and Christmas.

Fully licensed and accredited, the centre offers child care to children aged 6 weeks to 5 years and before and after school care for children aged 6 to 12 years old. School-aged children are walked to Don Bosco School and bussed to Haultain Memorial which is only a short five-minute bus ride away.
