West Henday

Edmonton, AB

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 West Henday is conveniently located just west of the Anthony Henday across from the Lewis Farms Transit Centre. Situated in the West Henday Promenade shopping complex, the centre offers plenty of parking and is easily accessible by stroller or wheelchair via ramp and elevator.

The bright and airy centre offers 243 licensed spaces encompassed in over 20,000+ square feet of specifically designed space for early childhood education of children aged 6 weeks to 5 years and before and after school care for children aged 6 to 12. The centre features three floors, 17 classrooms divided into age groups, an indoor gym, large outdoor play space and spacious kitchen. Security is ensured through key cards that only grant access to those families currently enrolled in our centre.

BrightPath believes in physical movement as paramount to healthy development. Depending on the weather, children spend at least an hour daily in our outdoor playground which is divided by age groups into developmentally appropriate play spaces or in our full-sized indoor gymnasium.
