GET YOUR CHILD SCHOOL-READY with out preschool curriculum.

Our preschool classrooms provide full-day 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.

Your Child’s Day of Learning at Our School for 3 Year Olds and 4 Year Olds

The focus of our Preschool program is kindergarten readiness. Your child’s day is filled with fun learning activities, circle time, indoor and outdoor playtime, group meals, quiet activities, and rest time. Through individual or small groups, our 3-year-old and 4-year-old preschools guide children in their interest areas. They explore reading, songs, writing, math, and science with their teacher.

During the year we also bring in special guests to read or teach something new to our children. Some of our guests have included community leaders, local farms, local police or fire departments, soccer workshops, and more.

Clever Bee Academy believes in opportunity for every child and is proud to partner with state-sponsored initiatives to offer early education programs that might not otherwise be available to certain students. Below, you’ll see a list of the child care programs we offer. These programs often vary by location. Check out the locations page to find out the specific programs offered by your preferred academy, and be sure to check other nearby locations as well.

At the end of the day, you receive a daily report with a summary of your child’s day. The sheet provides specific information on

  • The food they ate

  • The sleep they had

  • School readiness progress in five developmental areas

  • Learning activities your child participated in during the day

  • Important reminders or other information

As the time approaches for your child to graduate from our preschool programs, many of our sites offer transition workshops with information on how to register for kindergarten. Some even partner with local school districts and schools to help you prepare for this step.

Preschool graduation is an exciting time for you and your child. Our locations take time to celebrate this milestone with your family at the end of summer. This is the perfect time to begin thinking about any before and after-school care needs once your child attends school. Clever Bee Academy is proud to offer our communities before and after-school care at most of our locations. We also offer a remote learning program where we provide support for what your child learns from their Ohio online schools.

Every child is special and we take pride in providing the care and experiences your preschooler needs to appropriately transition into school. So, if you’ve been searching for “preschool programs near me,” Clever Bee Academy is your preschool of choice!
