The mission of SPARK Aurora Early Childhood Collaboration is to empower our diverse families and children to attain full success in learning and life by ensuring all Aurora’s young children have equal access to exemplary Early Childhood Care and Education.

SPARK strives to improve and strengthen the early childhood system in Aurora by ensuring:

1.  Parents and the community are educated and informed about the importance and value of an early childhood education for all of our young children and the impact it has on children’s success in school and life.

2.  By supporting the ongoing improvement of the early childhood programs in the Aurora community through continued professional development of its teachers.

And by…

3.  Building an early childhood coordinated system in which the school districts, community-based early childhood programs, community agencies serving families and children all work as one unit to ensure that Aurora’ young children have the resources, knowledge, and skills to be Strong, Prepared And Ready for Kindergarten.
