As a homeschooling family, we find Spark Family Enrichment to be an amazing community resource. My daughters are able to get away from the every day routine by having music lessons, spanish, and writing! They offer wonderful oppurtunities for your children to explore a wide variety of subjects, that expand their future horizons! I love that the Spark Team is always making sure you are satisfied and more importantly that the kids are having the best experience possible! We are so excited to be part of Spark! – Alice
Spark! provides individualized, Montessori-inspired, educational and enrichment programs for students ranging in age from as young as preschool children to adults, and caters to homeschool, music, art and after school students. Parents and students now have a place with a full range of activities for the mind as well as the body and spirit.
Started by parents for parents, Spark! has always offered our community a creative and collaborative educational alternative that encourage well-rounded, lifelong learners. From that, the Spark! Creative Community School!™ was developed to partner with and support homeschooling parents by offering flexible, hands-on, meaningful, project-based instruction in science, reading, writing, mathematics, art and history. Spark! students have increased interaction with our certified teachers because of small class sizes, and because the learning is experiential and project based, students not only enhance understanding and mastery of subject areas, but practice life-management skills such as teamwork, conflict negotiation, self-confidence, public speaking and time management. Offering programs that enrich, instruct, and provide a social outlet for homeschooled children, the Spark! Creative Community School!™ partners with you as you homeschool your child, offering flexibility of days and personalized education plans. Every family is treated individually based on their need, and we're excited to support you in meeting your child's educational goals. Registration is ongoing for fall, but space is limited.
We Have Pre-K Classes, Too!
In addition to the vast array of manipulatives, the Pre-K 3-4 class introduces children tot he numerous basic skills needed to be successful students. They will have a daily routine including circle time where new lessons may be introduced. Additionally, they will work on the fundamentals of math and reading, including number and letter recognition, countin, letter sounds, early reading skills and much more. They will also focus on practical life skills using beads, scissors and other manipulatives that promote fine motor skills and increase ability in hand writing.
Our Elementary Program is Designed To Enhance What You're Already Doing
For the Elementary program (K-2 and 3-5) there is an emphasis on reading and writing, including daily journaling, monthly book reports and plenty of level appropriate materials to choose from in class. Research and public speaking are also important and each child will have an assigned topic to present to the class each month.
Additionally, we will be using Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley practice workbooks as a supplement to the math lessons presented. While traditional grading is not done, work will be turned in daily to be checked and returned to the student at the next class for corrections as needed. To this end, students are allowed and encouraged to work together and assist each other as they work on daily tasks.
