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.

Meet The Centre Director

Jhona started working in the field of educating children as an Elementary Teacher in the Philippines. She earned her Child Development Supervisor Certificate from Alberta Human Services and then proceeded to attend Bow Valley College where she received a Child Care Assistant Certificate. As well, Jhona received an Accounting and Payroll Administrator Diploma from Reeves College in 2011. She joined the BrightPath team in 2013, was our Director at BrightPath Woodlands and now at Richmond.

Jhona’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is showing the Centre to the children’s families and highlighting all the programs available for their children. She is devoted to the wellbeing of everyone in her Centre – children, families and teachers. Jhona strives to establish a sense of trust and security so that the parents are comfortable at work knowing that their child is in a safe, nurturing environment.

After immigrating to Canada from the Philippines in 2007, Jhona worked for families with children of all ages. She met her husband in Calgary and they are parents to a four-year-old girl who comes to work with Mom every day while attending the Centre. At home, Jhona and her family speak both English and Filipino. She also speaks a different Filipino language that is used in some parts of the Philippines. In her spare time, she enjoys watching movies, shopping and reading – especially any book from Sidney Sheldon.
