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 Alberta Education. 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.
