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.

About The Centre

BrightPath St Johns is located on the ground floor of a commercial and residential block on the corner of St Johns and Moody Street, across from Moody Elementary School. The centre offers on-street parking on Moody Street as well as underground parking with short-term spaces for drop off and pick up.

The centre is fully licensed and provides 90 spaces for child care for 6-week to 5-year olds as well as before and after school care for 6 to 12-year olds. It offers amenities such as an indoor gym for physical activity during inclement weather as well as play yards that allow for outdoor play and exploration in age-appropriate settings. To provide the highest level of security, the centre is locked, and only current families can gain easy access through key card scanners. All other visitors have to ring a doorbell and are vetted by the staff before being allowed inside.

Serving our school-aged children, BrightPath St Johns walks children across to Moody Elementary and busses others to Glenayre and Baker Drive Elementary Schools.

Meet The Centre Director

Christabel started working in the field of educating children over twenty-seven years ago. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree, Major in English Minor in ECE, ECE Licence to Practice from Simon Fraser University and her Music Degree from London Royal Conservatory of Music.

Her favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is working with children and seeing their growth and development. She loves it when children who had been in the curriculum come to visit the centre many years later. She truly appreciates the unique qualities of each child and the different stages of development – physically, emotionally and socially. Christabel also appreciates that working with long term staff and having low family turnover results in success and happy families.

A BrightPath Director since 2002, Christabel is excited about establishing the brand new St Johns centre and is looking forward to meeting new families and welcoming them into the BrightPath family.
