BrightPath Madison Child Care Center

"BrightPath Madison has been fantastic for our two children, with a third soon to join, thanks to the exceptional care, growth opportunities, and the warm, personalized attention from all staff." - Stacy Perrone

Located just a short drive from Exit 61 off of I-95, BrightPath Madison Child Care, previously Educational Playcare Madison, is ideal for families living or working in the nearby region. A unique fingerprint secures the entranceway of the daycare's activated security system, ensuring that only our families and teachers can enter the building unassisted. This system also enables families to sign in and sign out for their children, helping us maintain accurate attendance records as well. In addition, security cameras throughout the center allow our Directors to continuously monitor activities throughout the child care center. We even have “panic buttons” that alert the police in the event of an emergency with just a quick press of a button.
