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 Highland Park is located in a quiet, well-established, residential community in northwest Calgary with access into the neighbourhood off Centre Street and 42nd Avenue.

This licensed and accredited centre offers 75 child care spaces to children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. Cozy and relatively small, it still provides a large capacity of spaces, especially in the Infant and Toddler age groups.

The centre is bright and friendly with a lot of natural light. Combination keyless entry is required for entrance into the centre as keeping your children safe and secure is our first priority. Daily lunch and snacks are prepared fresh onsite daily and served family-style. The very large play area in front of the centre is divided into three sections to allow for age-appropriate learning materials and an environment that provides safe play for the different age groups represented at the centre.
