What Is SPARK?

How the Program Works

SPARK, which stands for Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids, is a family-focused kindergarten readiness home-visiting program that works collaboratively with families, schools and the community. SPARK at Action for Children helps families in Franklin County get their 3- and 4-year olds ready for kindergarten by building reading, math, and social skills!
