COACHING FOR SPARK

One of the support measures provided by ECDA for preschools for their participation in SPARK is the Quality Assurance Coaching (QAC) scheme. Preschools may apply to ECDA for coaching to assist them in working towards SPARK.

Through the QAC scheme, preschools may tap on coaches from the Early Childhood field to guide them in making quality improvement to meet the standards as outlined in SPARK. Preschools will be guided to address quality gaps in their structures and processes, and work towards SPARK Certification.


BENEFITS TO PRESCHOOLS

Preschools will be guided in enhancing the quality of their structures, processes and outcomes. They will receive advice in planning and executing quality improvements in preparation for SPARK Assessment.


QA COACHES

The QA coaches are experienced practitioners and educators from the Early Childhood sector. They have been carefully identified and trained by ECDA to fulfil the role of QA Coaches.
