Our team of carefully selected Early Childhood Educators has created a unique Kindergarten preparation course for children aged 3 – 5, that’s compatible with all curricula. As well as building on necessary competencies and skills, the Little Sparkz™ program will stimulate your child’s logical thinking and imagination, while reinforcing how fun learning is. The best part – you’ll have the opportunity to watch your child’s step-by-step progress as you work through the activities together!
How does Little Sparkz™ work?
Each level of the Little Sparkz™ program comprises 10 lessons, each centering around a theme that you and your child are likely to be familiar with. You’ll follow detailed instructions and lesson guidelines in order to ensure that you and your child complete all the activities. There are also opportunities for parents to revisit some of their own creativity!
** Level 1 & Level 2 options available depending on how Kindergarten-ready your Little Spark is **
Our clients love Little Sparkz™!
“In just 3 sessions they went from not being able to cut with scissors at all, to being able to cut out small objects. They also quickly learnt the difference between big and small letters in writing their names.
I think all preschool kids would benefit from this program. Big schools seem to expect so much from kids at Kindergarten level and the leap is just too big for most kids. This program really seems to bridge that gap!” – Charlane
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.
Where does Little Sparkz™ happen?
We recommend conducting all Little Sparkz™ sessions at home or at a venue that your child feels comfortable and familiar with. Stationery and various household items are required for some activities, which would be most easily accessible at home.
My child is already in Kindergarten – Is Little Sparkz™ suitable?
The Little Sparkz™ program focuses on the foundational skills needed in order to enter Kindergarten with confidence. If your child is already in Kindergarten but is struggling to cope with some of the demands, we would recommend completing the Little Sparkz™ program in order to identify where the gaps are and bridge them effectively.
My child is only 3 – Is Little Sparkz™ suitable?
Yes! We’ve recently launched a more basic Little Sparkz™ Level 1 – this introduces the literacy, numeracy, gross & fine motor skills your Little Spark will build on in Level 2. You can indicate on the booking form that this is what you’re interested in.
