Thank you for your interest in Peekaboo Centres. We are now a proud member of BrightPath kids. Don’t worry, we brought our fantastic teams with us, same management and same staff to serve you and your family.

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

Tucked in the corner of the Gates of York shopping plaza, BrightPath Newmarket is in the middle of town with easy access to the GO buses and GO train. They are located on Millard Avenue just two traffic lights south of Davis Drive on Yonge Street. Ample parking is provided to parents and with security bars on the front doors, you don’t have to worry about the kids sneaking out before you.

With a very stable team of early childhood educators, BrightPath Newmarket prides itself on its family-like atmosphere and their dedication to helping all families and adapting to their needs and schedules. The centre features two large playgrounds with age-appropriate learning material and climbers for the children to engage and play with. When the weather is bad, children can use the two indoor gyms to ensure they can still participate in physical activity and burn off extra energy.

As one of our larger centres, BrightPath Newmarket has a licensed capacity of 197 children and offers child care for 6-week to 5-years olds and out of school care for 6 to 12-year olds. School-aged children are provided transportation via shuttle service and school bus to Alexander Muir P.S., Canadian Martyrs Catholic School, Crossland P.S., Phoebe Gilman P.S., Poplar Bank P.S., Rogers P.S., and St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School.

Meet The Centre Director

Christine graduated with her diploma in Early Childhood Education from Seneca College in 1994. After a while she decided to go back to school and get her Early Children Administrative diploma in 2007. Christine joined the BrightPath family in August 2003 and has been the Centre Director at the Newmarket centre since November 2003.

Christine’s favourite part about being a Centre Director is the ability to interact with the children and their families on a daily basis. She loves to receive the genuine hugs from the children and hearing about success stories from the families. Christine enjoys watching the children grow and develop as they age up into the different programs at the centre.

Christine enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She loves to be outdoors and camping, spending as much time as possible at her trailer during our limited summer.
