Our five-step Building Tomorrow’s Leaders approach allows children to learn key social skills necessary for them to excel todaytomorrow, and for many years to come​​. Sparkles! focuses on five core areas:

  1. Character/Confidence Building. We work to acknowledge and encourage your child as they demonstrate such traits as initiative, compassion, and perseverance in the course of their daily activities.
  2. Social Skills & Manners. We provide support for children as they gain the ability to regulate their own emotions and behaviors, establish and maintain positive relationships with others.
  3. Problem Solving and Critical Thinking. We encourage your child to try new approaches when they make mistakes, teaching them problem-solving and resilience through trial and error.
  4. Team-Building. The tools of being a great team player – collaboration, compromise, sharing, humility – are also the tools of being a great leader. We encourage children to be comfortable both independently, and as part of a team.
  5. Community Awareness. Children have many questions about the world around them. We strive to teach them about diversity, charity and cultural awareness, giving them a broader view of their community.
