Spark is Being Redesigned!

Spark, Oregon’s Quality Recognition and Improvement System for early childhood care and education programs, is being redesigned! Over the next several months, there will be opportunities to participate in the redesign process in a variety of spaces and languages.


Our goal for the redesigned Spark is to create a system that is inclusive of Oregon’s diverse families, child care providers, and early learning programs. This will support adults caring for young children to continuously improve their practices and assist families in finding child care and early education programs that are the best fit for their child.


We are partnering with Community Wealth Partners to guide a listening, learning, and design process that is led by a group of parents/guardians and childcare providers/early educators. This process is centered on the belief that the people who work with or have young children should be the ones leading the redesign so that it is meaningful and useful to them.
