Enrich Your Child’s Life With Brightside  

Child Care, Day Care & Preshcool in Columbus, Ohio

For the Brightside Academy, Dec., 2001 was the month everything started. After opening our first location in Cleveland, we’ve proudly grown to have locations all over Northern Ohio. Today we proudly have four academies in Franklin County located in the  Linden, Hilltop, Clinton  Township, and Linwood communities where we provide high-quality child care and school readiness to the communities we service.

Our Services

At the Brightside Academy, we’re well aware of parents’ want and children’s need when it comes to providing quality education and child care. All of our Columbus teachers have been trained to care for and instruct children, using integrated learning methods, starting at as young as six weeks. Through our course work, your child’s development will be bolstered from infancy right up until kindergarten. After that, they can come for our after school and summer activities!

As soon as your child begins grade school, all of our Columbus locations will be ready to help you and them make the transition, being there for them at the beginning and end of school days if needed.

If you’re still not sure if the Brightside Academy is the right fit for you and your Columbus child, then we encourage you to visit our, “Why Brightside Academy,” page. If you’re still not sure, then be sure to schedule a tour!
