What our families think about BrightPath Southwood

"We love BrightPath Southwood. The staff are so warm and welcoming. From the moment we stepped foot in the center we new it was a great fit for our family. I feel like my child is truly being cared for which made going back to work for me a little easier. They truly look after the whole child (social, emotional, physical and academic well being) We love getting the daily report to see what our child is learning and working on. Each day seems like it is filled with learning and fun. The staff have really helped us with this time of transition which can be so challenging. We feel very fortunate that we are part of this great community."
Jan Greer
"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."
