Our centre is situated on Elbow Drive, kitty-corner from the Southwood United Church and easily reached from main roads such as Southland Drive or Anderson Road. The centre is licensed and accredited and offers 80 child care spaces for 19-months to 6-year olds and before and after school care for 6 to 12-year olds.
Highly committed to literacy and instilling a love of reading, the centre has created its own little onsite library that allows children to borrow books and share those they have loved with others. Starting at the preschool age-group, the children are also taken on regular trips to the local Southwood Library to partake in sessions held there as well as to borrow books.
Located close to community parks and schools, the centre often makes use of green spaces and playgrounds at the Southwood Community Association, St. Stephen School and the FFCA.
BrightPath Southwood is a sister location to BrightPath Southwood East which provides care for the younger age groups of 6 month to 4.5 years and is located just minutes away on Sacramento Drive.

Before & After
(6 years to 13 years)
Monalyn started working in the field of educating children in 1998 after graduating from Saint Mary’s College of Tagum, Philippines with a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree. She started teaching at a private Catholic school and eventually taught high school. She soon discovered that she was very interested in teaching children and making a difference in her community. She joined the BrightPath team in 2011 and is the Director of the Southwood Centre.
Monalyn’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is being inspired daily by the children, families and her team of professionals at the Centre. She strives to create a safe, positive and enriched learning environment for the children to ensure parents are confident while their child is in her care. She feels that a greater obligation is to treat each child, family and teacher as if they were part of her family. In the end the important thing to Monalyn is the difference that she can make in the lives of others.
Monalyn was born and raised in the Philippines and can read and speak both English and Tagalog. Parents to three boys, Monalyn and her husband enjoy quality time together camping and doing outdoor activities. Her hobbies are dancing, cooking, playing volleyball, table tennis and volunteering at church.
