SPARK Columbus Logo

Do you live in zip codes: 43205, 43206, or 43207? Are you a parent, guardian or grandparent of a child who will be able to start kindergarten in the Fall of 2016? Do you want to learn some ways to help your child get ready for kindergarten?

SPARK can help you be your child’s 1st and forever teacher!

The SPARK Program will come to you at your home or a location of your choice. We will work with you and your child to:

  • Read books!
  • Learn new words!
  • Discover letter sounds!
  • Do preschool math!
  • Write letters and numbers!

SPARK is FREE and it includes books and supplies!

Children who have been in the SPARK Program do better on school tests than children who have not been in SPARK.
