About Cloverbuds

Ohio's 4-H Cloverbud Program is for youth age 5 and in Kindergarten until they reach age 8 and in the third grade.

Cloverbuds are children who explore areas of healthy lifestyle, earth / environment, citizenship, plants and animals, consumerism and Family Science, science and technology, personal development, and community expressive arts.

The primary goal of the Cloverbud progam is to promote children's healthy development - mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.

The Cloverbuds program provides an excellent opportunity for children to reach his or her highest potential because early life experiences, even subtle ones, affect future development.
