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.

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.
