For more than ten years, the Early Childhood Education Alliance has been focused on providing quality early childhood experiences for children and families in Alliance, Ohio. Thanks to our partners, ECEA is able to connect families with resources and programs that ensure children enter kindergarten ready to succeed. ECEA believes it is important to EDUCATE, ADVOCATE, and COLLABORATE because early experiences last a lifetime.
The pandemic was a stressful time for everyone--especially young children. The data is showing that children who participated in the SPARK Alliance program are recovering faster than their non-SPARK peers. 73.2% of SPARK Alliance participants are meeting the Language and Literacy cutoff score on the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment in comparison to 41% of their non-SPARK peers. This means there is a difference of 32.2% in school readiness. SPARK is FREE to participants. Every child deserves to enter school ready for success. Contact ECEA today to sign-up for SPARK.

How are SPARK Alliance children scoring on the Transition Skills Summary in comparison to children their age across Stark County? Look here and see the most recent 2023 data report. The Transition Skills Summary is an assessment given in the spring prior to kindergarten entry. It helps educators and families see areas of growth and areas that the child may need additional support with prior to entering school. #EDUCATEADVOCATECOLLABORATE #REPTHATA
