Overview

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.

Centre Director

Nicole Hayes

Nicole graduated with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Sheridan College in 1997 and has been working in child care ever since. She joined the BrightPath team in September 2001 as a kindergarten educator, and over the years, has had the opportunity to work at several of our BrightPath locations and is now the Centre Director BrightPath Waterdown.

Nicole’s favorite part about being a BrightPath Director is going into the programs to visit the children, being greeted with smiles and hugs, and watching each child grow and develop.

Nicole has two daughters that keep her busy, and together, they love spending time outdoors at the cottage, swimming and going for bike rides.  She also enjoys going to the movies, dining out, and watching her nephew play hockey.

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!"
Jennifer Faye Gilkes
"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! 😁"
