SPARK Learning Lab: Free Resources for Childcare Providers

Shaping the Future of Early Childhood Education

TECH Connect by SPARK Learning Lab is designed to power businesses like yours with the essential technology tools, resources, and support to help your business thrive. Through several key initiatives under this program, SPARK is on a mission to get new technology into the hands of Early Education Providers and ensure they are confident in how to use them within their child care business.

What SPARK Provides

From one-on-one virtual and in-person coaching to online training and resources, SPARK Learning Lab offers a wide variety of supports. We start out by listening to your needs, then take steps to provide you with the specific resources you need.

In addition to free training, coaching and additional resources, SPARK can also provide access to free technology. As part of SPARK’s TECH Connect program, your organization may be eligible for resources at no cost.

  • SPARK is offering free laptop and tablet-style devices to eligible child care programs! These devices are yours to keep and use within your program! Opportunities to apply for a device will be announced monthly as long as device quantities remain! Stay tuned to your inbox for an announcement as to when the application will be opened.
  • Eligibility criteria for devices: Child Care Programs that are Licensed/Registered/Legally Exempt and in Good Standing Indiana with state of Indiana and have not already received a device from TECH Connect.
