Opened in 1989 as our very first center, the Orchard Park center was located in the heart of the Village directly across the street from the Middle School. In September 2015, we moved to North Buffalo Road, directly across the street from the Orchard Park Veterinary Center.

BrightPath, previously known as EduKids is proud to call itself the only NAEYC Accredited child care center in Orchard Park. Our team of loving, nurturing caregivers, led by an outstanding Center Director, has made EduKids the most trusted Early Childhood Education program among teachers and families in the Southtowns. This is also due, in part, to our strong relationship and involvement with the local community as we host multiple UPK classrooms for the Orchard Park School District. By remaining an integral part of this vibrant neighborhood, BrightPath is able to provide you and your child with a strong sense of community and accomplishment. As is the case with all BrightPath Centers, our curriculum is based in thoughtful lesson planning as well as healthy play, hygiene and nutrition.

Center Director

Amanda Anderson is excited to be the Center Director of the school at Orchard Park. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and has over 15 years of experience working with children. Her journey with BrightPath, formerly known as EduKids, began in 2015 when she joined the Orchard Park center as a Lead Toddler Teacher and later became a Lead Preschool Teacher. In 2019, she enrolled in the Management Trainee Program, which led to her promotion as Center Director of the Lancaster BrightPath soon after. In the summer of 2021, she transferred back to the Orchard Park center, which she considers "home" and couldn't be happier about it.
