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.

 Kids enrolled at Brightside Academy – Northern Lights receive FREE diapers and wipes while attending the academy! 

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-Northern Lights is open from 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. Our location is convenient to families living in the Linden area among others. COTA buses service the area.
