Damonica Huggins

Child Care in Frederick


My name is Damonica Huggins, I'm originally from Indianapolis Indiana, my family and I relocated to Akron Ohio 19 years ago. Within the 19 years of being in Ohio I've made some great achievements I received a master's degree in Christian Psychology & Christian Counseling, and I received my CDA (Child Development Associate).

I have experience in all age groups I have 4 children of my own and 5 grandchildren that keep me on my toes.

I have been in Early childhood Education for over 20 + years, during my career, I have worked in Indianapolis, and Ohio as an Assistant Director.  I've been with Clever Bee for four years now I started out as a Lead Toddler Teacher from there I advanced to the Lead Preschool 1 Teacher, I also severed as Infant 1 lead Teacher while in Infant 1 I decided to take Child Development Associate courses which I completed in less than a year. In 2018 I took on the roll as Program Lead Teacher and I believe that was the push that I needed to stay with Clever Bee Academy and take on more challenges.  Now I'm in another position still at the same location (Frederick)  so far this experience has been GOOD!

Purposeful play is integrated into every lesson to ensure your infant begins their path to learning with constructive and fun activities.

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.
