We are fortunate to have some very talented staff here at
‘Bright Light Academy’
Merritt Bailey – Director
My name is Merritt Bailey, I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and have completed my Director’s Credentials which will serve me well as the director of Bright Light Academy.
I have over 25 years of teaching experience with the last eight as an owner and director of my own center in Westmoreland County. I love spending time with children of all ages, sharing conversation and experiences with them and watching them learn and grow. I am passionate about being able to provide a quality early childhood education for all children and select staff that share that passion.
When I am not busy teaching and directing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three grown children, traveling, cooking, spending time with friends and exercising my artistic side through a variety of mediums.
I am looking forward to learning my way around Pittsburgh, Shadyside in particular, and getting to meet many new friends and families in my days at Bright Light Academy.
