It's about quality....
The Singapore Preschool Accreditation Framework (SPARK) is a quality assurance framework to assist preschools in Singapore in raising their quality.
SPARK aims to provide recognition and support for preschool leaders in their efforts to improve teaching and learning, and administration and management processes to enhance the holistic development and well-being of young children. It serves as a guide for preschools to understand what they should be striving to achieve. It also provides a benchmark for preschools to measure themselves against, and establish for themselves the extent of their achievement.
SPARK Assessment has been implemented since January 2011. Child care centres and kindergartens may apply for SPARK Assessment via four application windows in a year.
