A workplace with a lot of perspectives to grow in this field

Featured review

BrightPath Kids selected this as a representative review
Being with Brightpath for 6 years and I don’t thing I can find better Early Learning Company better than this! I started from 0 ( didn’t have even a level 1) and they provide me with opportunity to learn and grow! Now, being a center director I feel working with dedication in a friendly, calm environment, having good health benefits and perspectives to grow! Brightpath provides a really good programs and nutrition for children and they really take care of their educators! I feel like we are a big family here: respected, appreciated and supported by our upper management when needed!

Think 3x Before You Join This Company

Accounting system is very messy. Most of my work is trying to find what is wrong with it instead of doing analysis. I do not think the management wants to clean or correct it because I found many incorrect entries. I brought all the incorrect entry to the management but they gave excuses not to fix it.Controller is not competent.The company offers the worst benefits package to the employees compared to the company that I have ever worked atColleagues are nice.


Colleagues are nice.

Avoid at all costs

Toxic management, great coworkers and amazing kids. Wouldn’t recommend to work here, wouldn’t let us go to the bathroom for lengths of time as we were always short staffed and can’t break ratio

Needs work

The staff are lovely. But it's tiresome work. Communication needs work because no one seems to be on the same page. It's overwhelming to be told opposing information (if at all) every day.Keep a clean classroom but let them be messy, but clean the mess immediately.Don't rush them, but stay on schedule and let them finish.Don't interrupt them while they're, but ask them questions and scaffold.Don't force them to do activities but make sure everyone does it.It's exhausting. You have so much to do and no time to do it and it feels awful at the end of the day to feel like you've not taught anyone.

This place has a toxic work culture. Weak leadership with poor communication skills. Employees who are cruel to children. There was no system in place for reimbursement of supplies and management rarely bought supplies, or if they did, it was things that didn't make sense. We needed construction paper but what we got was age inappropriate puzzles and way too many blocks.

Would never work here again.

The workload is crazy and they barely give you time to work on anything. They don’t say it to your face but they encourage you to do everything on your own time while demanding you do more. Also, don’t call in sick because they will make you come in regardless, so if you need to vomit do it in the washroom and go back to work. Management will tell one set of people information and they own tell the rest of their staff so you have to find out after you do something wrong. Also, if you’re not their favourite all rules apply to you at all times. Then comes pay which is not enough for all the work you already do plus what they are asking you to do. Their idea of paid vacation is to PAY YOU 4% on your bi-weekly pay check and you have to save your own money. If you don’t save that 4%, when you take your vacation you don’t get nothing for that week/weeks your off. There is so many things wrong with this place I wouldn’t work there again. The one positive thing I will say is that they will hire just about anybody because people are ALWAY leaving. So if you want work experience….

Good Company, lack of management support

Honestly a great place to work. A little bit of a struggle because your boss isn’t actually at your site with you. Be prepared to advocate on your own, and deal with things that you shouldn’t have too.

not the best

lots of turn around, and almost no quality staff. I have supplied at many different locations in Ontario. The directors are not very supportive and turn a blind eye to many things

Very fast paced most days in a busy classroom

What is the best part of working at the company?Training and staff and the director are very approachable What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Some of the children have some behavioral issues which requires more attention but without parental support extra help can't be accessible What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Fast paced as with every ECE environment

So so

Not greatest place. But kids are good. Not always right food from recipes. Pay and benefits should be improved as managers say nutrition is important.

Good place

I work at the Kanata, ON location as an RECE. At first it was a rough start but my manager was there to help me out with any questions or concerns I had. The staff are great and I love seeing all the children everyday. If your looking to grow as an educator I would definitely recommend.

Engaging and welcoming

I enjoy working here the staff are all amazing, and the children and caregivers are wonderful. Overall, the experience at Bright path maple has been a positive one with plenty of support from the faculty.

Unreasonable Expectations

The staff in the center including Director and Assistant Director were good. Unfortunately, head office has very unreasonable expectations of center staff. This causes quick burn out and high turn over. They also say they are there to support the staff, but then turn away when asked for help.

For PROFIT World wide organization. A lot of upper management who forget what it’s like to be an educator. Aesthetically appealing materials and environment make it look like high quality Organization. Priority - money making


Working with children and families


Too many hands in the cookie jar. (Mngt) low pay, morale

Worst Organization/Company ever in Toronto

I joined the worst and below average company ever in my career. No training plan, no team coordination, no learning scope at all. From 1st day they expected to do 100% production It’s my worst decision that I joined this company for 2 weeks but the culture I understood on my first day. They not even pay me in full what I worked.




Each snd Everything is worst

Awful workplace that made me hate working in childcare

Always was given closing shift, always felt completely spent at the end of every day, always felt underappreciated by every person who worked there, and it made me hate working in child care and ultimately moving on to a different career.


Outside play areas were spacious


Long hours, no air conditioning, hateful management
