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 Whitehorn is situated on the corner of 36th Street and Whitehorn Drive. About a block away from the Whitehorn CTrain station and close to a number of bus routes, the centre is an ideal location for drop off and pick up for commuting parents.

The centre offers 80 spots for child care for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years and before and after school care for those aged 6 to 12 years and is fully licensed and accredited. Right on the corner lot, the first any visitor sees is the centre’s large L-shaped outdoor play area that wraps tightly around the centre. Divided into three spaces, all age groups are able to play, discover and learn in age-appropriate settings stocked with learning materials that assist with development for all ages and stages.

BrightPath Whitehorn is particularly proud of its very experienced and long-term group of early childhood educators.
Most of the staff have been with the centre for more than ten years, and in the child care industry even longer, creating a consistent environment that is very supportive of its children, families and team. Ask them about any parenting questions or issues you might have, and the staff are more than willing to provide advice or work alongside you to resolve them.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a smile on a child’s face. Gurminder enjoys the strong relationships she has developed with the children, their families and her staff. Creating a safe, positive and enriched learning environment for the children is very important to Gurminder all the while ensuring that parents are confident while their child is in her care.
