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.

BrightPath Early Learning Program Overview

The BrightPath Academy Curriculum was designed using the latest research into early childhood learning and development. It not only exceeds the provincial Early Learning Framework standards and the provincial Kindergarten Curriculum expectations, it incorporates a strong academic approach while recognising the significance of play and sets children on a quest for meaningful learning experiences full of joy, enthusiasm and empathy.

The program will highlight key literacy and numeracy skills required for future academic success by exposing the children to an environment dedicated to supporting their learning and exploration of the world around them. The focus will be on developing each child’s independence and self-confidence under the careful guidance and leadership of a well-qualified team of educators.

Every learning space will incorporate distinctive learning materials, with each item specifically selected to support the child’s interest and learning. Music, movement and creative arts will also be an integral part of the daily learning experience.

Biodiversity and sustainability (BP Green Program) are incorporated into our daily planning.

The Green Program is designed to develop a deep connection with the natural world. It focuses on the importance of sharing the planet, fostering environmental stewardship and offers rich sensory stimulation.

The centre is located inside the Congregation Habonim Synagogue in Forest Hill.
