Through this approach, each Sparker’s capabilities

are observed and recorded.

Staff utilizes this information, supervised by our Certified

American Curriculum Director, to modify and deliver the curriculum and practices that adapt to the individual

learning  needs of each child.

We adopt an approach called DIFFERENTIATION in our Play Based American Curriculum where the curriculum works to meet your Sparker’s needs, rather than having your Sparker work to meet the curriculum’s needs.

What makes Sparks different is that we appreciate differences.

Sparkers are engaged in challenging experiences that are at the edge of their capabilities ensuring that all Sparkers reach the standardized levels.

At Sparks we apply the “American Early Learning and Development Standards (AELDS)”. In this Play Based Curriculum, we follow Developmentally Appropriate Practices adopted by the American National Association for Education that utilize differentiated assessments, teaching strategies, materials, books and diversified resources such as Montessori tools, Learning A to Z, ABC-mouse and the latest in gross and fine motor skills equipment ensuring AELDS are met.

Sparkers are engaged in challenging experiences that are at the edge of their capabilities ensuring that all Sparkers reach the standardized levels.

All of the diversified tools we employ at

Sparks are selected to meet our goals. For example: Montessori activities emphasize cognitive structure and social development and encourage self-discipline, the multi-sensory materials are used for physical exploration, while the learning A to Z program focuses on leveled books and activities covering all aspects of language arts (listening, speaking, reading, writing), math, science, social studies, music, manners, health, PE, drama and

arts & crafts.

Our curriculum is focused on

promoting the development of self-control, positive self-esteem, and emotional awareness, basic problem solving skills, social skills, and friendships.After all, literacy and numeracy skills are not ends in themselves but basic tools that can and should be applied in the quest for understanding.
