Headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, we employ over 1,200 people and serve over 7,000 children per day in our academies located in multiple cities across Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York.

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.  Children are born with the tools needed to learn and they are eager to learn. Brightside Academy helps lead children to their potential with state-of-the-art facilities that enhance their experiences and prepare them for a lifetime of learning.
