BrightPath Enhanced Kindergarten is a not-for-profit program funded by Alberta Education providing on-site kindergarten in partnership with BrightPath Kids.
BrightPath Enhanced Kindergarten facilitated by Marlborough Day Nursery ECS provides kindergarten in various BrightPath locations in and around Calgary. The program is intended to provide an alternative to families looking for an enhanced program with individualized care.
BrightPath Enhanced Kindergarten is taught by Alberta Certified Teachers and follows the Alberta Education Curriculum.
Our program is designed to be developmentally appropriate and to allow for the differences and experiences each child brings to the classroom. With a focus on early literacy, math, community, personal and social responsibility, and creative expression, this program caters to each individual child by creating a modified program based on their current level of development.
We make use of the ‘Handwriting Without Tears’ and Animated Literacy programs. When ready, children learn through guided reading. These programs support children with fine motor development and to build a strong love for reading which is essential for future academic success.
Students in the BrightPath Enhanced Kindergarten program are assessed both formally and informally throughout the school year. Informal assessments are on-going in the form of daily classroom observations and interactions as well as literacy and math assessments.
Formal assessments are completed using a broad range of tools which covers a variety of readiness skills to help educators identify each child’s specific strengths and needs. Three sets of report cards are provided to parents to demonstrate the child’s progress which is followed up by a parent-teacher interviews to discuss progress or challenges following the first and second report cards.
