BrightPath South Windsor Early Learning & Child Care, previously Educational Playcare South Windsor, is a newly-built, state-of-the-art daycare center in South Windsor, Connecticut, at 742 Ellington Road. It is a beautiful facility with oversized classrooms and reflects all of the positive components we have learned about early childhood education over more than 30 years of providing exceptional daycare and preschool services. Our child care center offers plenty of free parking spaces for parents for easy drop-off and pick-up and our building is only accessed by using our facial recognition system. Additionally, families can find security cameras located in each classroom and play area and our daycare centers have strategically placed panic buttons that link us directly to the local police department in the event of an emergency.

Our child care center is warm and inviting, with each classroom benefiting from natural lighting and colorful interior features. Our infant and toddler daycare classrooms are designed to be very child-centered, right down to the tiniest detail. Our preschool classrooms include activity centers that include science, math, music, movement, construction, literacy, and dramatic play. Each of our daycares is equipped with a professional kitchen as we provide nutritious lunches, as well as two snacks each day.

Center Director

Meghan Eldridge began her career in Early Childhood Education by working in a before and after-school program during the school year and as a summer camp instructor during the summer seasons. Before working at BrighPath, previously known as Educational Playcare, she worked as a preschool teacher and administrative assistant for eight years. During this time, she also worked on receiving her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education, which she earned in 2020 from Charter Oak State College in Connecticut. 
Meghan believes that all children learn through play and exploration and that all children deserve a good education, a welcoming environment, and a passionate educator. She also believes that children’s first years of education are the most important and set the foundation for a child’s future success. 
In her spare time, Meghan enjoys traveling to new places and visiting the beach often with friends and family. She loves exploring new restaurants and cuisines and recreating these delicious meals when she can!
