BrightPath Avon Child Care center, previously Educational Playcare Avon, offers care for up to 238 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. Our state-of-the-art daycare center offers a balance of child-led programming and an award-winning curriculum to suit the essential cognitive, social, and physical needs of children. Our center in Avon is a beautiful facility with oversized classrooms. The classrooms benefit from wonderful natural lighting and colorful interior features.
The Avon center consists of four buildings in the Riverdale Farms Shopping center, only minutes from Rt. 10 on the Avon/Simsbury border. In 1995, we expanded to the entire first floor of the adjacent building where currently our preschool programs are. In 2001 we took over "The Big Red Barn," a huge building we use for school-age programs and Summer Camp. We expanded again in 2013 and moved our infants and one-year-olds into a state-of-the-art facility previously occupied by the Little Gym. In addition, we completely remodeled our original building, expanding the classrooms for our two-year-olds, and adding indoor playgrounds and staff resource areas as well.

Al Coxon, has been in the child care industry for twenty-four years and has been with BrightPath, formerly known as Educational Playcare, since April 2001. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut in Parks and Recreation Management.
His favorite part of being a BrightPath director is building relationships with children, families, and staff every day. Al has gained a unique understanding of the implementation of developmentally appropriate practices. He now strives to share his knowledge with the teaching team that he supports in his administrative role.
Engrained in him at a young age, Al’s drive and enthusiasm stem from his desire to provide a safe, nurturing, and supportive experience to the children and families in his care. It has been an honor for him to provide the first contact for families seeking care for their children at his center and introduce them to their first educational experience and what he hopes will be a successful lifelong pursuit of lifelong learning experiences and opportunities.
In his leisure, Al enjoys landscaping, golf, and along with his wife and two children, is an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, New York Giants and the UCONN Huskies. He enjoys cruising the Caribbean, spending time at the beaches of Connecticut and Cape Cod and, from time to time, treating the family to ice cream for dinner at a local ice cream shop.
