In July 1992, Brightside Academy was founded in Pittsburgh, PA, where it is currently headquartered. While we did not immediately recognize the need for subsidized child care services, over time we realized the tremendous shortage of quality child care available to the residents of inner-city, urban communities and began to specialize in offering such services.
Between 1992 and 1997, Brightside Academy added seven locations in Pittsburgh and in January 1998 we opened the first academy in Philadelphia. In December 2001 the first academy opened in Cleveland, OH. In 2005, we opened our first academy in New York.
Currently, our company is the largest provider of subsidized child care services in the state of Pennsylvania, operating academies in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
