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 Millrise 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.

Meet The Centre Director

Judy started working in the field of educating children in 1979, graduating from Mount Royal College in 1989 with her Early Childhood Education diploma. She joined BrightPath in 2011 and has been a part of the team at the Millrise Centre for thirty years in total!

Judy’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is watching the children develop and grow throughout the years. Their smiling faces bring her so much joy each and every day and she loves them like they are her own children. Judy is amazed when she sees her Centre’s families become friends and show interest in not only their own children.

Judy has four children that she raised by herself and eleven grandchildren. She is a ‘people person’. Being raised on a farm in a large family, Judy became an aunt at the age of twelve. She loves to support her children and grandchildren at their various sporting events by attending their games, recitals and competitions. Travel is her favourite thing to do as well as camping.
