Meet Our Director

My name is Josephine White and I have been in the Early Child Care and Education field for 30 years. I was born and raised in the DC metropolitan area and moved to Akron, Ohio with my family,  a few years ago. My compassion and commitment for young children, and their families comes from a belief that they deserve the very best in education and care. 

I have so much respect for educators and my dream, very early on,  was to support them in creating the best possible environments within quality child development program settings. Nurturing the next generation has been a passion of mine since I was in grade school. This passion encouraged me to pursue a degree in early childhood education.  I have obtained an Infant/Toddler Child Development Associate Credential and I currently have 117 credits towards my degree. It is my absolute pleasure to be a part of the Brightside Academy Ohio team.

Children are born eager to learn. Brightside Academy Ohio’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.
