Overview

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.

What our families think about BrightPath West Kelowna

"Having been working in the ECE field for 5+ years, BrightPath West Kelowna is the best workplace I have been at thus far. Our centre director communicates clearly, encourages her staff daily and has an "open door" policy which makes speaking to her about difficult matters very easy. The staff that are on our team are some of the best educators I have ever worked with. Everyone is open and honest and the children are number one priority. This makes for an awesome place to work!"
Kristal Hunter
"We absolutely love the quality of care our daughter receives at Brightpath. Our daughter has been going to this daycare for two years, and we have always found the staff to be warm, welcoming, receptive and willing to take the time to handle any concerns we may have. I highly recommend this daycare to any one I interact with who is seeking high quality childcare."
Jo-Ann Chivers
