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 Oriole Park can be easily accessed off 67th Street (aka David Thompson Highway) at Orr Drive, the traffic circle exit by the Tim Hortons. The centre itself is located on the corner of Orr Drive and Osler Crescent in the residential Oriole Park West neighbourhood.

A small centre offering 54 spots for 6-week to 6-year olds, it invokes a community feel by nicely blending with the rest of the neighbourhood. Fully licensed and accredited, the centre is working toward bringing natural elements into its classrooms, creating a comfortable, home-like atmosphere. Each classroom features its own access to the outdoor space, allowing children and staff to move more easily between the two environments. The large play yards are divided into age groups, allowing children to play and explore in safe, age-appropriate settings.

Kindergarten-aged children have the option of partaking in the afternoon onsite Kindergarten at Oriole Park’s sister centre, BrightPath Eastview.

Meet The Centre Director

Shawna received her Early Childhood Education Diploma in 2007 from Academy Canada in Newfoundland. Upon graduation, she worked at a Newfoundland child care centre for two years and then relocated to Red Deer in 2009. Shawna has had the pleasure of working at all three Red Deer locations and has enjoyed making BrightPath her work family for most of her career.

Shawna’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is getting to meet new families and having them become part of her Centre Family. She hopes to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all staff, families and children. Taking great pride in her work, she loves to see staff do so as well.

In her spare time, Shawna enjoys relaxing with her husband and family dog. She likes collecting and listening to old records and she loves to sing. She also enjoys camping, hiking, watching movies and spending time with friends.
