Centre Director

Ashley Fillion has been with BrightPath since September 2007, first in the Toddler and Casa rooms, then transitioned to a management position as the Assistant Centre Director, and is now excited to take the next step as the Centre Director of Montessori by BrightPath Lasalle. She is an RECE graduate of St. Clair College and earned her Infant/Toddler diploma in 2006 and her AMS Early Childhood (Casa) diploma in 2017.

Her favourite part about working as a BrightPath Centre Director is interacting with families and children and fostering long-term connections with them. Additionally, she always strives to improve the centre's programming and culture.

Ashley has three children who all attended BrightPath growing up. They are now 12 years old, 10 years old, and 8 years old. In her spare time, she loves spending time with her husband and kids. She and her family enjoy exploring local events, playing baseball, and dancing throughout the year. They also love outdoor activities like swimming and skating.

What our families think about Montessori

"Highly recommend it to anyone seeking care for their child. The programs are developmentally appropriate, staff are warm and welcoming, communication between the centre and home is outstanding and the menu for lunches and snacks is the best we’ve seen. Our oldest child had multiple food allergies while attending the centre and the policies in place made us comfortable and confident that he would be safe in their care each day.

We appreciate all the years of care this centre has offered our children. They go above and beyond for their families and children attending their programs!"
Jenni-Lynne Buchanan
"It's a blessing to be able to walk out of those doors.. Although sad to leave my little guy who is 3 everyday , I know he is in good hands. I absolutely loved when on our way home i asked him how was his day and he said "Great! Momma do you know the planets?... " super exciting. Thank you to everyone there for making our transition better."
