BrightPath Rutherford is situated on the corner of Westburne Drive and Rutherford Road beside the 7-Eleven, just down the road from the Keele Street and Rutherford Road intersection. Located across the street from the Rutherford GO station and minutes from Highway 407, this centre is a favourite among commuting parents and the large parking lot uncomplicates drop off and pick up.

With large windows, the centre has a warm and inviting atmosphere and long-term staff are like family to the children in attendance, watching them learn and grow through each milestone. BrightPath Rutherford offers 160 licensed spaces for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.  The centre’s outdoor space features three large playgrounds, each targeted at developmentally appropriate stages for each age group; one with a climber, one with a bike path and one with toddler-themed toys like water and sand tables. When the children cannot play outside due to inclement weather, they have an indoor rec room to expand their imaginations and work off excess energy.

Centre Director

Debbie graduated with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Seneca College in 2020 and has worked in the child care industry for over 12 years. She has a Bachelor of Science degree from York University, a Montessori Teacher Diploma from Associate Montessori International, and is enrolled in Yorkville University's part-time Master of Education program.

Debbie’s favourite part about being a Centre Director at BrightPath Rutherford is contributing to the growth of each child that joins the daycare centre. Helping each child learn and grow is the most fulfilling part of her job. She thrives in building strong relationships with the children, families, and staff as she believes trust is a key aspect of quality care.

Debbie is a wife and mother of a daughter, and she loves to spend time with her family and friends. Debbie loves to study and learn new things in her spare time and travel to different countries, especially vacation destinations. She can also read, write, and speak English, Armenian, and Persian.
