Our Program

Children are born eager to learn. Brightside Academy’s curriculum helps lead children to their full potential and prepares them for success in school and beyond.

Our kindergarten readiness programs teach age-appropriate lessons that encourage development in a safe and nurturing environment. Trained and experienced teachers care for and educate infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in the areas of reading, math,

communication and exploration daily.

School-age children benefit from before- and after-school care in a supervised and enriching environment and from a fun summer camp program when school is not in session.


Brightside Academy Kinsman is open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm. Our location is convenient to families working or commuting along Kinsman and East Cleveland. RTA bus stop 14 services the area.
