BrightPath Early Learning and Child Care centres offer a standardized, age-appropriate curriculum that includes both play-based and child-led approaches.

Bright futures: Give your kids their best first chance at learning

4 pillars to early childhood learning for your child in Maple Ridge

Setting up your child in their early years for the learning that will come later is one of the best things you can do as a young parent.

With a wide variety of child care centres operating in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows region, how do you select the one which gives your child their best chance at being prepared for when they start attending school full time?

It’s a choice that benefits from doing some research, notes Samaya Khattak, Director of Programming with BrightPath Early Learning and Child Care.

“Having an early childhood curriculum that creates optimum learning environments at every age, from birth up to age five, is critical to their development,” she says.

Providing opportunities for your child to develop social/emotional, cognitive, physical and language skills is the focus of the standardized curriculum BrightPath provides at its centres. Children in the infant, toddler, threes and pre-K age groups receive age-appropriate instruction.

You’re a part of the four-pillar approach

The curriculum, which provides a holistic approach to learning and development through a combination of curriculum integration, play-based and child-led learning with activities planned around children’s experiences and interests, is just one of four pillars BrightPath engages in. Here are the others:

  1. Early Childhood Educators The nurturing and attentive people who work closely with your child are given ongoing coaching and guidance to be able to inspire and encourage individuality
  2. Nutrition Providing children with nutritious, fresh food for lunches and snacks helps fuel their growth and lays the foundation for future eating habits, in conjunction with your meal planning at home
  3. Communication You’ll want to know how your child is doing, so BrightPath offers a cross-section of connection points for parents, from newsletters, interviews and open houses to the award-winning interactive Bright Path Connect app.

You’ve got choice in Maple Ridge

There are currently two options locally for your child to learn through this multi-faceted curriculum.

BrightPath Maple Ridge is centrally located on Dewdney Trunk Road and has 73 licensed spaces, including child care for kids six weeks up to age five, and before- and after-school care for those aged 6-12. Located in Fairview Elementary School, BrightPath Maple Ridge West features 36 spaces, with care for children aged three to five, and before- and after-school care for 6-12 year olds.
