Our centre has been serving the community for decades and is located in a well-established and quiet residential neighbourhood in the southwest of Calgary. The centre can be easily accessed off Macleod Trail and is a block away from the old Shawnessy Golf Course entrance on James Mckevitt Road.

Licensed and accredited, the centre offers 100 spaces for child care for 12-month to 5-year olds and before and after school care for 6 to 10-year olds. The director has been with the centre since well before it was ever a BrightPath facility and the centre prides itself on the extremely long serving staff. They inspire a feeling of being part of an extended family and it shows in the many children that enter the centre as infants and stay until they age out of the program at age 10.

The centre backs onto the giant Millrise Park which is actively used by the preschool, pre-K and the OSC age groups, utilizing the large green spaces, big playground, baseball diamond and soccer fields and providing an excellent opportunity for outdoor play outside of the centre play yards.

Centre Director

Acting Centre Director
Carmen started her journey with BrightPath six years ago, first as an educator in the toddler and infant room, then quickly transitioned to a management position as the Assistant Director, and is now excited to take the next step as the Centre Director of the BrightPath Millrise child care centre. She comes with an extensive experience in child care that spans over 14 years long.

Her favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is connecting and interacting with the children and sharing in their BrightPath journey. Through BrightPath, she has been able to get out of her shell and engage with a wide variety of people. She is passionate about learning new things and integrating what she knows and what she has learned into the daily routines of her educators.

Carmen is blessed with three boys. In her spare time, she enjoys baking for her friends and family. It is one of her favourite ways to relieve stress.

What our families think about BrightPath Millrise

"This daycare is a career mom's dream come true. The director, Judy does a phenomenal job running this daycare and the teachers are so genuine and truly care for the kids. I don't know how all the teachers know all the children's names and they seem to always have intuition if the kids are coming down with being sick or have a change in routine. It is extremely clean and the food is healthy with great international options keeping kids open minded for trying different foods. My four year old daughter gloats about the food. My usually fussy 12 month old son started reaching out for his teacher by the second day which made me feel so at ease."
Jennifer Setiawan
"BrightPath Millrise is exceptional. The staff are engaged, friendly, and professional. The Centre Director is accessible and has constant communication going out to parents. The App gives insight into what’s going on in your child’s day (sometimes with cute pictures!). Nutrition is a priority and there is a rotating menu of wholesome fresh food, not to mention the accommodations the Chef is willing to make for children with dietary restrictions. Our children truly enjoy being there and constantly come home with new skills and self-confidence. It really is a phenomenal centre."
