Earth’s Precious Jewels Literacy & Fitness Academy is a Black-owned daycare that opened in November of 2018. They are located in the heart of St. Bernard on Vine St. minutes away from surrounding communities; Avondale, Clifton, Bond Hill, Elmwood Place, and Winton Terrace.
Earth’s Precious Jewels caters to preschool-aged children from 2 1/2 to 5 years old with a strong emphasis on reading and literacy skills, and a secondary focus on health and wellness. Their curriculum is centered around components that prepare your child to be on or above grade level when entering kindergarten. They accept vouchers through Hamilton County, and are in the process of submitting an application to receive their 1st star for Step Up To Quality.
At Earth’s Precious Jewels they know how much your child(ren) means to you. They go the extra mile to place cameras throughout our center so you feel safe knowing that you can log in from your smartphone and watch a live stream of your child at any time.
Earth’s Precious Jewels has created a non-profit organization in 2014, Earth’s Precious Jewels Literacy Foundation, to help encourage and promote reading to families and children.
Through their non-profit they were able to:
- Help 3rd-grade students at a before and after school program in Mt. Healthy South Elementary prepare for Ohio standardized tests.
- Spend two years at Mt. Airy elementary in a program titled Reading All-Stars where they prepared 2nd-grade students that struggled in reading.
- Donate a laptop as an award to the “Uplift My Community Contest.” This was a contest where teenagers living in Lincoln Heights had to participate in an essay writing contest writing about how they could change their community.
- Help with books, equipment, and online software and programs to continue their daily mission in their preschool from day-to-day learning and operations.
Earth’s Precious Jewels hopes to have the opportunity to help mold and develop children and prepare them for a prosperous future. Link to their Google Business Profile.
