What are SparKits?

The price of materials or level of technology is not the foundation for learning.

Not everyone is an expert in early childhood education, but everyone who works and plays with a child is a teacher. As your child’s first teacher, parents and other family members and friends have the greatest impact on a child’s learning. Face-to-face interaction provides the most important learning experiences.

SparKits, a program of Early Childhood Alliance, not only provides materials your child will enjoy, but also activities that will 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.

SparKits provide learning experiences.

The difference between a box of toys and SparKits is that SparKits…

Enhance skills at specific age ranges that help children prepare for the next stages of development.

Are planned by early childhood education professionals.

Provide opportunities for hands-on involvement by parents and others.

Offer guidance for extended learning experiences with materials easily found in the home.

Conveniently designed to utilize things around the home to create impactful learning experiences.
