Points of Pride

1. Providing affordable, quality care that meets the educational needs of today’s children.



2. We provide a unique learning environment that encourages growth and development.



3. With the right educational leadership and curriculum our children develop the language, literacy and social skills needed for life-long success.



4. Our curriculum is recognized both locally and nationally, in each state.

Safety and Culture

We believe that child care involves more than babysitting. Studies prove that 85% of brain development occurs before the age of five. Brightside Academy’s quality early childhood education program provides the appropriate experiences a child needs to connect brain synapses, which are at the root of learning and skill development.
