Not everyone is an expert in early childhood education, but everyone who works and plays with a child is a teacher and will have the greatest impact on their learning.
SparKits, a program of Early Childhood Alliance, provides both materials your child will enjoy and activities to spark family involvement. SparKits is a tool that helps families provide the building blocks to prepare children to learn, to be successful in school and beyond.
The result is children of all ages feeling safe and loved through one-on-one engagement, developing confidence in making friends, and being on-track for success in school.
Children learn and develop through play, and SparKits are designed for purposeful educational opportunities.
For example, sorting colored pompoms with tongs helps a child develop small motor skills, which eventually leads to holding a crayon to color or a pencil to write.
Each experience builds skills from basic to more complex, all laying the foundation for skills needed in school and beyond.
