History and Mission

Sparkle Spot Learning was created in 2011 to meet the needs of families desiring extra support. Sparkle Spot Learning supports the whole family, both children and parents. It is common for elementary and middle school aged children to need support figuring out how to “do school”. With the social pressures and academic rigor in schools today, many children (and their parents) are working hard to keep up with the expectations of our fast-paced world.

Sparkle Spot Learning’s commitment to connection and relationships allows parents to feel empowered as part of a positive coaching partnership. Parents receive support to guide their children through the complications of school’s academic, social and emotional challenges. At the same time, our individual learning specialists know and appreciate the strengths and challenges of our students. We strive for each student in our care to develop a positive, trusting relationship with a Sparkle Spot Learning educator who cares about the uniqueness of that child’s mind and heart.

Sparkle Spot Learning’s mission is to support and celebrate the strengths of each child and¬†family¬†while building skills that may be challenging. By recognizing and utilizing the “sparkles” in an individual child, parent, and family, it is possible to positively address challenging skills and behaviors. At Sparkle Spot Learning, we care deeply about positive relationships and collaboration with the people in a child’s life. We do not wish to work in isolation to “fix” a problem, but rather as part of a team to understand, appreciate, and participate in the growth of a confident, capable human.
