Mommy Connections visited Brightpath Daycare this Winter and let me tell you, it was exciting!
Additional space, a new kitchen, new playgrounds and a new Director, Danielle Nelson (Leath Pennington was promoted to Regional Manager, congrats Leath!). Brightpath Daycare is one of Sherwood Park’s largest daycares and is located at 20 Main Boulevard, Sherwood Park T8A 3W8. Call 780-417-3444 to book your tour today!
So many great changes at Brightpath! Due to an increase in the number of children attending (and they of course get a little older each year), additional space has been added to accommodate infants, toddlers and preschoolers. If you are looking for childcare for 2, 3 or 5 days per week, Brightpath has it all!
A New Indoor Gym – a new indoor gym has been created where the children are engaged in the WeeMove™ program. This program is designed to engage children on multiple levels, to make learning fun and instill a love of movement. All children will participate in this program twice a day, four days a week. Brightpath also has new outdoor play spaces for WeeMove™ as well!
A New Director – It was clearly obvious how liked Danielle is by the children when I saw them stop what they were doing to talk to her and some even wanted cuddles! Danielle graduated in 2007 with an Early Childhood Education Diploma with Distinction from St. Lawrence College in Ontario. Upon graduation, Danielle relocated to Alberta where she worked in a variety of centres and operated a home daycare. In 2014 she moved back to Ontario to join the BrightPath team as the Director of the Appleby Centre. Now she is back in Alberta and has taken over the reins for BrightPath Sherwood Park.
Danielle’s favourite part about being a Brightpath Director is ensuring that her Centre runs smoothly and the children and staff are happy. It gives Danielle great pride to see her staff flourish, which ultimately helps the children flourish. Seeing the staff, children and parents excited to come to the Centre every morning gives her the most pleasure.
Renovated Kitchen – Parents can have peace of mind knowing that Brightpath has a clean, well- functioning kitchen to make healthy food for your children. See Brightpath’s weekly menu HERE. Days are packed with learning and play, children need proper nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Brightpath has partnered with a Registered Dietician & Nutritionist who has developed a menu that provides food fresh and prepared daily.
Thank you to Director Danielle Nelson for taking me on a tour of the facility and letting capture these pictures! Checklists galore… Brightpath is organized to ensure a safe, fun and engaging environment for all children!
