BrightPath Simsbury Child Care Center

"We love BrightPath daycare. Educators are great, very professional and responsible." - Margaryta Terentyeva

BrightPath Simsbury Child Care, previously Educational Playcare Simsbury, is located in St. Johns Place and is situated on the corner of Rt. 10 and Rt. 315, making it a convenient location for nearby residents of Simsbury and Granby and for people who drive through Simsbury on their way to work. Part of this new state-of-the-art facility was once a church, as evidenced by the beautiful stained glass window in our enormous indoor play area.

We have been NAEYC Accredited at this location since 2010 and meet all the standards of a high-quality center ideal for a child’s early development. It’s a spacious, two-story facility with more than 15 generously-sized classrooms. Outside, the five large playgrounds provide an extensive play area for the children, providing them with ample space to enjoy the outdoors while developing their large muscle skills.
