PARTNERSHIPS TO ASSURE READY KIDS™ (SPARK) is a family-focused intervention program that helps children get ready for school by building reading, language and social skills and seeks to create a seamless transition into school.
Partnering with SPARK now will create the greatest opportunity for your child’s long-term success. A child develops the ability to reason by the age of 5. Children who enjoy high-quality, early-learning experiences are more likely to stay in school, attend college, earn more money and land a high-skill job.
The Parent Partner delivers monthly home and group-based lessons and activities to families of 4-year-old children who will be going to Kindergarten in 2017.
To participate in the SPARK program, call 330-484-8019 ext. 719 or email Heidi Lieser at email@example.com.
