Meet Our Director

Hello my name is Eve Rudd (Ms. Eve)

I am pleased to join the Brightside Academy Ohio team as the new academy director. I have worked with children and families for over 20 years. I have been in different roles over the years however I always have felt the most fulfilled when working with children. I have worked as a caregiver, a home childcare provider, and an assistant teacher all the way up to director. I love children and I aspire to see all children succeed. It is my pleasure to help people in any way that I can. It is my desire to help take Brightside Academy Ohio to the next level. I have an open door policy and I look forward to serving here at Brightside Academy Ohio.

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 Broadway is open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm. Our location is convenient to families living in the Broadway, Fleet and Harvard neighborhoods among others. RTA buses service the area.
