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 Kelowna is neighbour to the Westbank United Church on Brown Road, just two blocks North of Highway 97 and the heart of Westbank.

This small and homey centre feels like a small, intimate community where families bring their children to be cared for long-term from infant to school age and everyone, including staff, children and parents, are familiar with each other. Offering 64 licensed spaces for ages 6 weeks to 12 years, the centre truly is a home away from home.

Each of our bright classrooms are stocked with engaging materials that will help children learn, create, and play. School-aged children are walked to and from École George Pringle, saving them a lengthy bus ride. The outdoor play space features divided play yards that provide age-appropriate learning materials and large climbers. There is also space to garden where children learn to plant seedling, tend their crops and harvest the produce in the end.

Meet The Centre Director

Working in the childcare field since 1999, Andrea joined the BrightPath team in 2014.  Initially wanting to become a high school teacher, she changed paths after discovering Mount Royal University’s Child Studies Program in Calgary.  Over the years, she has taken additional early childhood courses as well as some child and youth care courses.

Andrea’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is connecting with the children daily.  She loves interacting with the children and families in the Centre while maintaining a sense of community.  The families trust the educators with their most precious item – their children – and she takes pride in the way her Centre cares for them.

Growing up in Kamloops, BC, Andrea spent a lot of her youth enjoying Shuswap Lake.  Andrea moved to Kelowna in 2007, where she met her husband.  They now have three inquisitive children and a dog and enjoy spending the weekends with friends, playing sports and exploring many Okanagan attractions.
