My child is only 3 – Is Little Sparkz™ suitable?

Yes! Level 1 of our Little Sparkz™ program is perfect for 3 year olds as an introduction to the basic skills they will eventually need to enter big school with confidence.

My child is already in Kindergarten – Is Little Sparkz™ suitable?

Little Sparkz™ takes children through the basics of what they should have mastered in order to enter Kindergarten with confidence. If your child is already in Kindergarten, but is struggling to cope with some of the curriculum, we would recommend taking them through the Little Sparkz™ program in order to identify where the gaps lie and to work one-on-one with a specialist to get back up to speed.

Which level of Little Sparkz™ should my child start with?

Little Sparkz™ is a two-level program, with Level 1 being more appropriate for 3-4 year old competency levels, and Level 2 being appropriate for 4-5 year old competency levels, however, these ages are just a guideline! To find out if your child should start at Level 1 or Level 2, answer the following questions:

1) Can your child write their name correctly without assistance?

2) Can your child cut along a printed zigzag independently?

3) Can your child count to 20 and recognize numbers 1 – 20 without assistance?

  • If you answered “yes” to all of the above, your child could start at Level 2, although we do recommend working through Level 1 first.
  • If you answered “no” to any of the above, your child should start at Level 1.
