Great Keystone STARS News from Philadelphia Locations

Brightside Academy is pleased to announce great PA Keystone STARS news for Philadelphia: the Mellon (701 Market St.) academy is our newest STAR4 designation and the 6000 Castor location has been re-certified as a STAR3 provider!

The Keystone STARS website describes the program as

“a quality rating system that promotes quality improvement in early learning and development programs. A Keystone STARS designation informs parents that their children are in a safe, respectful environment in which they are learning new things every day to support their current and future successes in school and in life.” 
It takes commitment as a region to achieve this success and we extend a warm thank you to ALL of the individuals contributing to this effort for Philadelphia. We express our gratitude to key contributors who have been essential to our success: teachers, academy leadership, field director, and regional staff.

Brightside Academy’s locations are effectively working on many innovations and improvements to our programs. This is only the beginning of many future successes aimed with the vision of providing great early education in our communities. We thank the region for their hard work. It takes bright and dedicated people like you to move us forward to accomplishing our vision of quality education for all children each day.

Temple U Dental Provides Care at 341 E. Allegheny Location

Brightside Academy thanks Temple University Dental for providing dental care to the children at our C&A location (341 East Allegheny Ave) in Philadelphia. The children were excited to learn about how to keep their teeth strong and healthy.

A total of 21 children received their 6-month check-ups and cleanings conveniently during the TempleU visits in September and October.

Parents truly value having the services done while the children attend our academy; there is no need to schedule time off from their jobs or having to work around their class schedule to visit the dentist office.

We thank the Temple U and our staff for helping coordinate the visits and look forward to working again with Temple Dental at C&A in 6 months!
