FREE School Readiness Program
Do you have a 3 or 4-year-old? The SPARK program works to prepare children who are 3 or 4 years old by helping them to develop essential skills before entering kindergarten.
SPARK (Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids) is a family-focused, kindergarten readiness program. We partner with the parent or guardian to provide engaging lessons and hands on activities. The SPARK lessons are aligned with Ohio's Early Learning and Development Standards.
Each session lasts approximately one hour and is carried out as a home visit so that neither you nor your child has to travel anywhere. We come directly to you! Lessons occur every 3 weeks for one whole year. We offer flexible scheduling, we adjust our schedules to fit yours! Book kits will be provided to all families, including books, crayons, paper, reading lessons, and more...
All Spark program families have access to additional family stability support services and resources that can include case management, access to our food pantry, holiday toy drive, school supplies backpack, financial assistance for emergencies, and more.
All TANF qualified families with children ages 3-4 may apply to enroll in the Spark program.
