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.


6 weeks to 17 months

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.

How to Afford Child Care

Before-and-after school care

  • As children play, they investigate the world around them, discovering and
    growing their learning. They learn about cause and effect, use prior
    knowledge to build new knowledge and problem solve.  Children learn
    from each other as they interact and seek new information. Teachers
    guide children’s learning experiences by asking open ended questions to
    expand their thinking. Daily STEAM activities are opportunities for children to explore and learn about Science, Technology, Engineering Art and Math.
