Amanda Woods

Owner and Director

Amanda had been the Director of Operations for Brighton Academy for the last 8 years prior to taking over ownership in January of 2020.

Amanda is a lifetime resident of the Liberty/Kansas City area. She graduated from Liberty High School and attended college at Northwest Missouri State University where she obtained a Bachelors degree. After graduation, Amanda was employed in the Liberty School District in their Kindergarten program and coached high school cheerleading.

Amanda’s passion is in education and childcare so it was a blessing to move to early childhood education after starting a family of her own. It was important to her to be close to her children and have a hands on role in their development and growth while still educating the minds of other children.

Amanda has 2 children of her own, McKinnley and Bennett. McKinnley currently attends school in the Platte County School district while Bennett is enrolled in the Prekindergarten program at Brighton Academy. Both children have attended Brighton Academy since birth.

Over the next year Amanda is excited to further her education and obtain her CDA (Certified Directors Associate) along with attending other job trainings and courses to further her education in Early Childhood Education. Owning Brighton Academy was always a dream of Amanda’s from the first day she started in 2012. She is excited to be on this journey and looks forward to continuing to build Brighton Academy to be the best Early Childhood Education facility in the Northland.
