This Roycroft-inspired BrightPath, previously known as EduKids Center, is located less than one mile from Route 400, at the corner of Seneca Street and Jamison Road. This center has been serving the community since 2006. It has charming curb appeal, which is matched only by its beautiful interior and custom “green” outdoor playspace. With the help of our valued staff and Director, we’ve created an environment for your young child that uniquely combines a fun, safe learning environment with countless opportunities for healthy imagination and exploration. Our daily educational curriculum follows programming standards set by the NAEYC, which makes for the finest and most fulfilling child care facility.
