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 Falconridge is located on Falshire Drive just off of Falconridge Boulevard, across from Terry Fox School and the Falconridge/Castleridge Community Association. On a bus route, the centre can be reached through transit including some from the C-Train station.

The centre is fully licensed and accredited with 102 spots for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years in child care and 6 to 12 years in before and after school care. With a spacious play yard that surrounds the building and features a large oak tree that provides natural shade, the centre focuses many of its activities on its outdoor space. The “Nature Corner” provides an area for nature-based activities where children can learn about nature, explore plant life and spend time outside instead of cooped up in the centre.

For the school-aged children, the centre walks to Grant MacEwan School, just minutes away and also busses to Falconridge School as well as St. John XXIII School.
