The Spark Difference

A child’s brain develops most rapidly in the years between birth and kindergarten. Research documents the value of high-quality early childhood experiences, citing the marked benefit in all domains: physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and linguistic, including bilingual and multilingual. These benefits have an impact on children that last throughout their lives.

Spark Academy offers reimagined early care and learning with a safe inspiring indoor and outdoor learning environment, a comprehensive data proven curriculum, collaboration with support agencies with a facility design that includes space for early intervention when needed, and an inclusive approach that includes families in their children’s most important years.

Spark Academy features a groundbreaking mixed-income model designed to ensure that ALL children can access an exclusive curriculum that highlights core skills that are truly foundational for children’s learning. Science, technology, reading, engineering, art, and math activities are presented in developmentally appropriate context to engage and encourage each child and their families to become part of our learning community.
