Brightside Up, Inc. is dedicated to providing resources to the community in order to improve the availability and quality of child care and to assist families in finding child care. As the local child care resource and referral agency (CCR&R) for New York’s Capital Region since 1989, Brightside Up provides these resources to Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Rensselaer counties. SAME INTRINSIC VALUES UNDER A MORE MEANINGFUL NAME After 40 years as child development experts, we understand children. Previously known as the Capital District Child Care Council we are now Brightside Up, creating a world where all children are understood. We help the world see the bright side in every behavior, every cry, every laugh, every challenge by advocating a strength based, positive approach to problem solving as well as celebrations. Failures are merely opportunities for growth and learning and are not to be avoided or viewed as shameful; they should be a lens through which we can strive to be better parents, providers, educators and children.
