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

BrightPath Midnapore has been a proud part of its community since 1978. Close to the Macleod Trail and Shawnessy Boulevard intersection, the centre provides easy access to major thoroughfares while being tucked away in a quiet, mature residential area.

Fully licensed and accredited, the centre offers 100 spaces for child care to 12-month to 5-year olds and before and after school care for 6 to 12-year olds. The centre and its staff give a warm welcome to all that enter and make you feel part of the family. This feeling of home as well as the centre’s longevity has inspired second-generation BrightPath families – parents that came to the centre as children themselves years ago are now bringing their own children to the centre for care.

On a corner lot adjacent to a huge soccer field and immediate access to Fish Creek Park just minutes away, BrightPath Midnapore is able to not only provide children with additional outdoor spaces for physical activity, it can also explore the natural environments in the park. The centre’s school-age children are bussed to Father Whelihan School and have the option of walking or bussing to Midnapore School depending on weather.
