BrightPath Traders is tucked away in a low traffic area, almost centrally located in the square made by Hurontario Street, Highway 401 and Highway 403. They are also walking distance to multiple bus stops.
The centre, formerly known as Peekaboo Traders, offers 167 child care spaces to children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. They also hold accreditation with Raising the Bar and are committed to maintaining provincial standards as well as local community standards in the care they provide.
BrightPath Traders’ early childhood educators take great pride in the appearance and environment of the centre. The open and airy space has a very welcoming ambiance and fosters a sense of inclusion and family for all enrolled or visiting. The staff love seeing the children grow through each milestone and always ensure the families feel welcomed and at home.
The centre features four large outdoor play areas, separated by age group, to ensure lots of outdoor play time for any age. As an added bonus, the centre also has access to a green space and forest backing onto the property which is great for nature walks, exploring and learning in a natural environment. When the weather prevents outdoor play, the centre has an indoor gym that allows them to still provide physical activity to the children while keeping them out of the cold and rain.

Marlene graduated from Sheridan College with her Early Childhood Education Diploma in 2005 and started working in child care immediately. She has experience working with all age groups from infants to school-age children. Marlene became a Supervisor in the GTA in 2008 and has worked as Program Manager supporting ten centres from 2011 to 2013. Joining BrightPath in 2014, Marlene is the Centre Director in our Traders centre and is looking forward to being part of positive changes within the BrightPath family.
Marlene’s favourite part of being a Director is coming to work and seeing all the staff, families and children daily. She enjoys supporting the staff while increasing the quality of programs that they offer to the children to ensure new experiences daily. A positive, enhanced and welcoming environment is important to Marlene so that families feel comfortable leaving their children within her care.
Being Mom to Arianna and Sophia – and Brandi the Dog – brings so much joy and happiness into her life and she learns from them every day! In her spare time, Marlene enjoys spending time with family and friends whether it be enjoying the outdoors, swimming or reading. As well, Marlene loves to travel, especially to destinations for some relaxation on the beach!
