Child care and out of school time programs have been a vital part in supporting communities, children and families through the pandemic. We have heard how difficult this time has been and as we begin to look to a post COVID world we want to provide supports that meet your needs. SPARK Learning Lab and OECOSL are excited to introduce mental health and wellness supports for you, your staff, and the children and families you serve.
Provider Support Groups
SPARK Learning Lab is offering an opportunity to talk about the challenges faced by program leaders in a safe, confidential, online setting with your peers and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This one hour, weekly opportunity is designed for the sharing of issues, discussion of ideas and suggestions for follow-up.

SPARK Learning Lab with the support of K1ds Count Therapy and Inclusive Options are now offering Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation (IECMHC) services to child care providers in Bartholomew, Boone, Brown, Decatur, Hendricks, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Marion, Montgomery, and Shelby Counties. This prevention-based service pairs a developmental, behavioral, or mental health consultant with families and adults who work with infants and young children (0-8 years) in the places that they learn and grow. Services are short-term and solution focused. We provide phone, virtual, and onsite support with hands-on interventions in the classroom and can target an individual child or family’s needs.
