Start Your Baby's Development with the Clever Bee Academy

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 to every lesson to ensure your infant begins their path to learning with constructive and fun activities.

Your Baby’s Day in Clever Bee’s Infant Child Care Classroom

A typical day for babies in our infant child care centers includes time for play, story time, meals, sleep, and tummy time, as well as individual and group activities in the morning and afternoon. The day is full of quality interaction with teachers as your child develops social skills, motor skills, and learns to enjoy and trust their surroundings. Throughout the day we check to ensure diapers are changed as needed.

  • Free meals and formula


  • Safe and developmentally enriching caregiving


  • Activities that help infants acquire developmental skills

Parents can provide useful information to the teacher in the morning. At the end of the day, you will receive a daily report with information on your child. The daily report provides specific information such as:

  • Amount of food/formula they ate

  • Amount of sleep they had

  • Diaper changes

  • Tummy time

  • Learning activities your child participated in during the day

  • Important reminders of items to bring or other information

Every child is special and we take pride in providing the nurturing care your baby needs to develop and transition into our toddler school. So if you have been looking for “infant care near me” online, Brightside Academy Ohio is the best place to start!
