BrightPath Marlborough Childcare Centre

Book a Tour


BrightPath Marlborough has now reopened with limited capacity and enhanced health and safety practices.

Our centre is situated on Marbank Drive, next door to St Mark Elementary School and is easily accessible off of 36th Street from the west and 52nd Street in the east.

The centre offers 103 spots for child care of children 6 weeks to 5 years and before and after school care for those 6 to 12 years old. Fully licensed and accredited, it offers an onsite Kindergarten program that allows children to stay at the centre for an additional year before having to go offsite to go to school. School-aged children are walked to St Mark Elementary School next door as well as Chris Akkerman School a block away.

The centre has long-term staff that are passionate about what they do and the children they care for. In the summer, children spend their majority of time in the beautiful backyard play space which is dominated by mature trees that provide a lot of natural shade and create a cool haven in the warm summer months. Alternatively, the centre also visits the St Mark School playground next door to provide constant variety and fun in its outdoor play offering.

Centre Director

Tigist started working in the field of educating children over fifteen years ago after graduating from Centennial College with her Early Childhood Education diploma. She joined the BrightPath family in 2007 and is the Director of our Marlborough Centre.

Tigist’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is the interaction between children, families and staff. She believes that she has the best job in the world because she gets to enjoy children’s laughter all day while helping them get ready for the future. It is her philosophy that a solid foundation in a child’s development at an early age has a profound impact on their future successes. She always appreciates the support, brainstorming and networking she receives from both staff and parents.

Born in Ethiopia, Tigist speaks 4 languages – English, Italian, Amharic and Tigrigna. She lived in Toronto for ten years prior to relocating to Calgary. Tigist and her husband have been married for nineteen years and are proud parents to two daughters and a son. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, baking and listening to music.
