Josephine White

Child Care in Arlington

My name is Josephine White and I have been in the Early Child Care and Education field for 30 years. I was born and raised in the DC metropolitan area and moved to Akron, Ohio with my family,  a few years ago. My compassion and commitment to young children and their families come from a belief that they deserve the very best in education and care. 

I have so much respect for educators and my dream, very early on,  was to support them in creating the best possible environments within quality child development program settings. Nurturing the next generation has been a passion of mine since I was in grade school. This passion encouraged me to pursue a degree in early childhood education.  I have obtained an Infant/Toddler Child Development Associate Credential and I currently have 117 credits towards my degree. It is my absolute pleasure to be a part of the Brightside Academy Ohio team.

Infant Program

6 weeks to 17 months

Infants are born ready to learn and explore the world! Our infant child care classrooms are where child care begins and where your baby develops into a curious and active child. Purposeful play is integrated into every lesson to ensure your infant begins their path to learning with constructive and fun activities.


18 months to 3 years

Toddlers are always on the go! Our toddler classrooms provide a safe environment where your child can explore and learn. Teachers promote self-care skills such as feeding, cleaning, and dressing. As you would expect from the best toddlers schools in the state, Clever Bee Academy Ohio will support your child’s large motor development and hand-eye coordination through a variety of activities such as kicking balls, tossing, writing, drawing, and lacing. Ultimately, we help prepare toddlers for the more challenging preschool programs.


3 to 4 years old

Welcome to Clever Bee Academy’s preschool program! Our preschool classrooms provide daytime child care to meet children’s needs for continued growth and preparation into a key transition – entering kindergarten at the end of the program. We believe that preschool programs promote a healthy adjustment in this period, helping build healthy transitions and attachments in the future.


5 to 12 years old

More than 70 percent of U.S. children have parents who work away from home, leaving 15 million youth unsupervised by adults when the school day ends. With Clever Bee Academy’s before and after-school care program, your kids can enjoy a safe environment to develop in as they wait for you before and after school.

Summer camp

June to August

Our summer camp program provides a variety of hands-on experiences that encourage critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, creativity, and collaboration. Enriching teacher-led projects stimulate child discovery through small and large group activities.

Before-and-after school Care

5 to 12 years old
