Early Childhood Growth and Development: Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids (SPARK) is a family focused home visiting program which helps children get ready for school by building reading, language and social skills. It seeks to create a seamless transition to school for four year old children who are planning on enrolling in kindergarten within one year. SPARK Parent Partners deliver monthly home and group-based lessons and activities to families of pre-school age children. After each session, the families receive free books and other materials related to the lesson to help children learn from their parents before the next Parent Partner visit. The structured lesson plans and activities that SPARK offers are aligned with the Ohio Department of Education's early learning and development standards. Statistics show that children in the SPARK program are better prepared for kindergarten and they retain that advantage through the 5th grade. There is no charge to the family for this program.
