The centre offers 68 licensed spots for child care for 6-week to 5-year olds and before and after school care for 6 to 12-year olds. Transportation to and from Westwood Elementary School is provided. Situated in a quiet and mature neighbourhood, the long-term center staff will make you feel right at home.
Proud of their inviting outdoor space in front of the building as well as a covered infant play space which allows children to play even when it is raining, the centre puts a heavy emphasis on outdoor play and physical activity. As they are located close to the Coquitlam River and Westwood Park, the older children (usually preschool and older) are taken on walks and excursions to explore and learn in this beautiful, natural setting as well.

Jasna graduated from Burnaby College with her Early Childhood Education Diploma and started working in child care immediately. She has over 17 years of experience working with all age groups from infants to school-age children, along with working with children with special needs. Joining BrightPath in 2011, Jasna worked her way up from a preschool ECE to now becoming the Centre Director for BrightPath Port Coquitlam.
Jasna’s favourite part of being a Director is part is working with the youngest ones, and planting seeds of knowledge for their future growth. She believes in creating a warm and inviting environment for children, families and staff at the centre.
Born and raised in Croatia, Jasna and her family emigrated to Canada in 1994. She loves reading, watching movies and long walks on trails along the Coquitlam River. Family time is important to Jasna, with visits to see her grandchildren in Calgary being her favourite way to spend quality time.
What our families think about BrightPath Port Coquitlam North
"It's all about the teacher quality in this place! The Director of the place, Jasna, puts so much effort in finding incredibly caring staff that it does feel like a second home for my kids. Yes, maybe the building is old, but I do love how the constantly change the "decor" for the kids not for the adults. Also, there is no price tag for a full licensed centre. My kids adore the place, they have lots of friends that have stayed at the centre for 3+ years."
"I am so glad I chose to register my son with BrightPath Port Coquitlam. Jasna is incredibly loving, and truly cares about the children and the staff. She's gone above and beyond to make our experience a great one. The facility is clean and tidy, and the teachers are warm and friendly."
