Help Connecticut Children Get a Strong Start!

Sparkler is now available to all Connecticut families with children 0-5 and programs serving those families thanks to the CT Office of Early Childhood. Sparkler's mobile app is free for families to use in English or Spanish, iOS or Android, smartphone or tablet. It allows families to: 

  • Know: Understand your child's development with the mobile Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ)
  • Play: Spark learning with fun, off-screen activities to play together and tips for parents
  • Grow: Follow your child's progress in your Sparkler scrapbook
  • Connect: Get tips and answers from experts at 211 Child Development or your school/provider

Providers have the option of using Sparkler's web-based dashboard (for free) to engage the families they serve with messaging, screening, co-play activities, and more. If you're a Connecticut-based provider interested in using Sparkler with your families, please fill out this form to get started.
