BrightPath Avon Child Care Center

"We love BrightPath daycare. Educators are great, very professional and responsible." - Margaryta Terentyeva

BrightPath Avon Child Care Center, formerly known as Educational Playcare Avon, is your trusted choice for daycare in Avon, CT. We provide exceptional care for up to 238 children, ranging from 6 weeks to 12 years old. Our Avon daycare center boasts a state-of-the-art facility designed to meet the cognitive, social, and physical needs of children. Our unique approach blends child-led programming with an award-winning curriculum to foster their growth and development.

Nestled in the scenic Riverdale Farms Shopping Center, our Avon child care center comprises four buildings, making it a convenient choice for families in the Avon and Simsbury areas. We've continually expanded to enhance our offerings: In 1995, we expanded into the entire first floor of an adjacent building to accommodate our preschool programs. In 2001, we took over The Big Red Barn, a spacious facility used for school-age programs and Summer Camp. Our commitment to excellence led us to expand again in 2013 when we relocated our infants and one-year-olds to a state-of-the-art facility previously occupied by the Little Gym. Moreover, we underwent a comprehensive remodeling of our original building, expanding classrooms for our two-year-olds and introducing indoor playgrounds and staff resource areas.

Choose BrightPath Avon Child Care Center for unparalleled Avon daycare services. Your child's bright future starts here!
