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 behind the Scotiabank in a quiet corner of Ranchlands Village Plaza on the corner of Nose Hill Drive and Ranchlands Boulevard, BrightPath Ranchlands is easily accessed off Crowchild Trail and right across from Crowfoot Crossing.

Sporting a bright red awning at its entrance, BrightPath Ranchlands feels like a character-home – a little older but warm and comfortable just the same. It offers 72 licensed and accredited spaces to children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. The centre has been established in the community for a very long time with some staff having been part of the centre’s fabric for more than twenty years! Children that enroll can expect to grow with the centre receiving consistent guidance of caring, experienced staff. The centre is calm and welcoming. Providing child care for all these years, the centre has been able to truly work out the kinks and create something really special.

Meet The Centre Director

Laura graduated from Niagara College in 2012 with an Advanced Diploma in Child and Youth Work. From 2012 to 2014, Laura provided treatment for at-risk youth within a parent modeled group home. She started her child care journey in 2014 when she moved to Calgary. Laura is the Director of our Ranchlands Centre.

Laura’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is having the ability to take on a variety of roles. She loves educating and informing staff on proper child care practices or opportunities for success. It brightens her day when she can jump into direct care and interact with the children. Her goal has always been to make a difference and loving the work she does, nothing is going to stop her!

Born and raised in Kingsville – a very small town near Windsor – Laura and her husband relocated to Calgary in 2014 from Welland, Ontario. They purchased their very first home in Cochrane and share it with their dog Slippers who gives Laura lots of additional love and cuddles in case she doesn’t get enough at work!
