BrightPath Farmington Child Care center, previously Educational Playcare Farmington, consists of 20 large and bright classrooms with brand-new, natural learning materials to stimulate children's growth and development. Our daycare center in Farmington is a spacious two-story facility situated on Route 6, in the Camelot Commons, between Exits 37 and 38 off of I-84. We share this beautiful red brick building with Children’s Eye Care; our child care center is the first one when you enter the plaza. As you drive into our parking lot, you will notice plenty of free parking space for our parents, for easy drop-off and pick-up. Outside, the seven large playgrounds create an extensive play area for children of all ages, providing ample space to enjoy the outdoors while developing their large muscle skills.
