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

Located on the edge of the neighbourhood, at the corner of McKenzie Towne Boulevard and 52nd Street behind the McKenzie Towne Sobeys, the centre offers ample parking and good access to parents dropping off and picking up their children.

At 286 fully licensed and accredited spaces, the centre is one of the largest of the BrightPath group. Offering child care to 6-week to 5-year olds and before and after school care to 6 to 12-year olds, the centre features many unique amenities across its three floors. With a ground-level entrance and an elevator, it allows for easy accessibility to strollers and wheelchairs. The large kitchen prepares daily meals and snacks fresh onsite. The outdoor play yards are divided by age group and provide age-appropriate learning materials and space to run off energy. Finally, the indoor gym not only offers a place for physical activity in inclement weather, it also provides space for our extra-curricular offering including various styles of dance classes, sports-jam, karate and more.

For school-aged children, the centre offers onsite Kindergarten through the Calgary School Board. This gives children the opportunity to be based at the centre for another year before having to go offsite for their schooling. Once they enter grade one, BrightPath McKenzie Towne services four neighbourhood schools – walking children to two and bussing to two more.

Meet The Centre Director

Heather started working in the field of educating children even before graduating in 2005 with her Early Childhood Education diploma. She also has a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Sociology. Heather started working in a Waldorf Centre while earning her diploma prior to relocating to Calgary. She joined the BrightPath family in 2007 and is our Director of the McKenzie Towne Centre.

Heather’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is being able to contribute to the development, growth and education of the children at her Centre. She loves the daily interaction with the children, whether it is playing with them or simply having a conversation – no day is the same!

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Heather moved to Calgary in 2005. She was a nanny for an amazing family with two children until 2007 when she transitioned back into childcare and has remained in the field ever since. In her spare time Heather loves to read and spend time learning about and practicing photography.
