Family Connectionsí SPARK Program Is Now Serving Families In Parma

Parma children who are 3 and 4 years old can now participate in a FREE kindergarten readiness program known as SPARK (Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids). Every month, a parent partner meets with the family, either in-person or virtually, to provide parents with the skills and confidence they need to prepare their children for success in kindergarten and beyond. The parent partner demonstrates a lesson that supports the state standards, then supplies a book, an activity card, and materials so that the parent can continue the learning between visits.

SPARK works cooperatively with the child’s preschool, conducts developmental screenings and links families to community resources in an effort to address barriers to academic success.
