Overview

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

Kawsar has a Master's in Science and a Bachelor's in Education, both from the University of Karachi, Pakistan, and obtained her teaching license from the University of Toronto. She joined the BrightPath team in 2011 and has extensive experience in child care that spans over 26 years. She is looking forward to her new role as a Centre Director at the BrightPath Marlborough child care centre.

Her favourite part about being a director at BrightPath is developing meaningful relationships with others and fostering a positive learning environment. As a team player and professional, she values professionalism and hard work. She’s a friendly face who is always willing to assist a child, parent, or staff member. Creating a safe, positive, and enriched environment for the children in her care is very important to her.

Kawsar is originally from Karachi, Pakistan. She immigrated to Canada with her husband where they now live with their three children. Kawsar says that with BrightPath, she has progressed and achieved her goals and feels accomplished. In her leisure time, she enjoys gardening, shopping, traveling, and watching movies. She also enjoys cooking her favourite food which is any dish that includes rice or something sweet. She likes to wear traditional clothes on family occasions and gatherings.
