BrightPath Southwood East Childcare Centre

Overview

BrightPath Southwood East has now reopened with limited capacity and enhanced health and safety practices.

Situated on Sacramento Drive, the centre is easily accessed from Southland Drive near the Southland CTrain station as well as Elbow Drive. Located in a quiet and established neighbourhood, the centre provides great access to commuting parents while still offering a sense of being part of an intimate community.

The centre offers 80 child care spaces to children aged 7 months to 6 years and is both licensed and accredited. Its main differentiating feature is all of the varied outdoor spaces that the centre has access to and makes regular use of. The outdoor play yard is dominated by seven mature trees that provide a lot of natural shade and protection from the elements. Divided into an infant space and a toddler/preschool space, the outdoor playgrounds are stocked with age-appropriate learning equipment that include such fun elements as a Safari car. Located across from a large green space, the centre also provides summer programs such as Happy Feet Preschool Soccer to allow for even more opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while learning and having fun!

BrightPath Southwood East is a sister location to BrightPath Southwood, located just minutes away on Elbow Drive. BrightPath Southwood offers care to children up to 12 years old and provides an option for child care and out of school care after children age out of Southwood East.

What our families think about BrightPath Southwood East

"I’ve had some experience with local daycares and it all wasn’t great. However, the care and support given by this location has been truly amazing! The staff are extremely caring, and conscientious to the needs of the kiddos at the centre.
When our family was facing some challenges, they were very supportive and conveyed understanding and compassion. Marla and Carmen always made us feel welcome and tried to make things easier for us in any way possible. Leaving your children in the care of others for 8 hours a day can certainly be daunting. I felt that leaving my kids there was so very enriching for them and knowing they were loved and cared for as they were definitely made it easier! Thank you Southwood East Brightpath!!"

"Amazing childcare center. The entire staff is very friendly and everyone appears to be extremely dedicated to the children they take care of. My daughter is in the downstairs room (for infants and toddlers) and the ladies down there are always going above and beyond. I can tell they really care about my little girl. I also appreciate that I don't have to worry about people I don't know coming in and out all day long, like I would have to in a day-home. I also like that there are a number of adults taking care of the kids, that way I know that there is always someone looking out for the well-being of my baby. I have already recommended the center to my sister-in-law, and would recommend it to anyone else looking for a safe place to drop their kids off while they're at work."
