Meet Our Academy Director

Hi everyone, my name is Lannell Phillips. I am the Academy Director (AD) at Brightside Academy. I have been the AD for over 15 years and in the profession of Early Childhood Education nearing 18 years. During my career at Brightside Academy I have worked at the Ridge Road and Broadway location in the past 8 years.

As Academy Director of the Operations, I take great pride in knowing that our St. Clair Academy is one that strives for excellence and quality in child care while promoting our Co-operative spirit. We have a wonderful complement of staff; dedicated and truly amazing at what they do.

Part of my role as Academy Director is to keep abreast of, and advocate for the Early Childhood profession. Also It is my responsibility to insure the compliance and safety of the children we serve in our community.

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-St. Clair is open from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm. Our location is convenient to families living in Morningstar Tower Apartments and those working in many of the businesses along St. Clair Avenue. Public bus transportation is available at the area.
