Sparking Healthy Connections
As an early childhood provider, you may hear parents wondering how their child is learning and growing at different stages. The Sparks video series is a free resource for parents that blends health, safety, sleep and nutrition topics with practical ways to promote children’s healthy learning and development
These videos were created by a diverse team of physicians and developmental experts from across the country. Each Sparks video goes hand-in-hand with a child’s check-up from birth to age 5 and can help caregivers know what to expect in the next stage of child development. Check out the videos below, and visit the Sparks website for more information.
