BrightPath Waterdown Childcare Centre
Located in the heart of Waterdown, BrightPath Waterdown is located right off Hamilton Street North between Rockhaven Lane and White Oak Drive, kitty-corner from Waterdown Memorial Park. Their private parking lot ensures ample parking for parents and key card access to the building provides a safe environment for the children.
This well-established centre has a licensed capacity of 83 spaces for children 8 weeks to 5 years old. They are a proud member of the Quality First initiative that encourages quality practices and professional development for staff and programs, as well as Affiliated Services for Children and Youth (ASCY) which provide quality services that contribute to the development and well-being of children and youth in the city of Hamilton.
Formerly known as Peekaboo Hamilton Street, BrightPath Waterdown has three very large outdoor areas each with synthetic grass. Each area is geared towards the different stages; infants have their own area to crawl, walk and learn, toddlers have age-appropriate play structures to climb and preschoolers have a large space to run and play.

Michelle started working at Peekaboo LEAP, a subsidiary of BrightPath, in 2004 in the after-school care program while she was still finishing her high school diploma. Upon finishing high school, she began working fulltime at LEAP. She continued her education at Mohawk College to complete her Early Childhood Education certificate, while still passionately working at LEAP. After graduation, she has been progressing up the corporate ladder and is now Centre Director at BrightPath Waterdown.
Michelle’s favourite part of being a Centre Director is the dedication that BrightPath has put into their centres and the passionate management team stands out beyond expectation. She loves the amount of thought and work that goes into the planning and organizing of the curriculum because the children are the ones that benefit from it. She is grateful of all the support that they have received from various parts of the team, from the facilities team all the way to higher management.
Michelle has lived in Waterdown for pretty much her entire life and having family close by is very important to her. She has been lucky enough to work with her sister who is a chef at the Waterdown centre and has even had her niece attend the preschool program. In her downtime, Michelle enjoys being creative and loves knitting, scrapbooking, painting and drawing while hanging out at home with her husband.
What our families think about BrightPath Waterdown
"I was unsure of where to send my son but after visiting Brightpath I did not look any further! The classrooms are well equipped to entertain and teach the children and there is a large yard for them to play in. The staff are super friendly, even if they are not your child's educator they still know who your child is. Michelle's door is always open too as she works. Thank you to an awesome team for all the love and care you give to my children!"
"Fantastic facility! My little one joined BrightPath Waterdown this year and he absolutely loves it! The facility is professionally managed by Michelle, and the fellow employees, Julia and Amanda, make my son feel very welcomed every day. All the healthy food options are made fresh in-house every morning and nothing is preserved. The facility also utilizes a parent-child connective app called HiMama which allows you to receive pictures of your child’s daily activities, and you even receive a full daily report of what they ate, how much they ate, and how long they napped for right after pick-up; very informative! Lastly, the facility backs onto a large securely-gated play area of which the children can freely run around and let their abundant energy out. - The play area is split into three different sections to ensure that same-age range children play together. Overall we are very pleased with BrightPath Waterdown and would surely recommend the facility to anyone and everyone! 😁"
