Meet Our Director

I have 13 years of childcare experience and have been at Brightside Arlington for 10 years,  I am very proud to be named director. I studied history and secondary education at Wheeling Jesuit University earning Dean’s List honors as a student and All-Conference honors as a basketball player. I feel my position as a male in the childcare industry is very significant because I am a positive role model for all the children and different from most of the males they may see in their own neighborhoods. My hopes as director is to maintain the warm loving, family atmosphere of the center and let the community know that children are safe here and will get top quality care while under our supervision.

Our Program

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.


Brightside Academy Ohio-Arlington is open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm. Book Mobile visits our center twice a month. We provide transportation to and from five schools. We partner with Summit DD and offer full meals to the children. Our location is convenient to families living in apartment buildings like Collison, Neville, Chesapeake Pointe, and Mohawk Apartments as well as Wilbeth-Arlington Homes, Joy Park, Willow Run, and Jenkins Annex among others. Bus number 2 stops right in front of the academy.
