BrightPath Millrise Child Care Centre

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.

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."
