Our centre 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.

What our families think about BrightPath Highland Park

"daunting. However, I had been communicating with Shabnam, the Director, just before arriving and we were welcomed with open arms and it has been one of the best decisions we have made. Everyone is absolutely fantastic, all of the teachers deeply care about all of the children and they nurture and encourage them everyday. Thank you everyone at BrightPath Highland Path, my son absolutely loves it there and you have really helped him learn, grow and develop into the little boy he is today! 😀"

"We absolutely love this daycare centre. The BrightPath chain of childcare facilities provides excellent environment for early childhood learning. The structure, the curriculum, and most importantly the teachers are all great.

Specific to the Highland Park location, we love that all of the teachers and the directors take immense pride in their work with the children. They all provide great affection when caring for the children, creating a safe and loving environment for the kids outside of home. The facility itself is fantastic, as it is located in a neighbourhood with great outdoor space.

We can not recommend this daycare enough."
