New Sparks Early Years Program

As you’ll have seen in our recent newsletters and on our website, Aeon Academy is going through some changes at the moment.

From Term 4 our much loved Sparks program will look a little different, while staying true to our goal of ‘Nurturing the Creative Spark’ in our youngest students.


Following the success of our Mini-Sparks trial, and in response to parental requests the age threshold for Sparks is being lowered to 3. We’re refocusing Sparks (now Sparks Early Years) on our 3 and 4 year olds, with their own program formulated in line with their developmental needs.

To increase their sense of participation and inclusion in the broader centre and open up new opportunities for peer mentorship and play, starting next term most of the former Sparks (our 5 and 6 year olds) will be moving up into our increasingly popular Creative Play program.

If you feel like your 5 or 6 year old would still benefit from the structure and greater level of one-on-one attention in Sparks Early Years, or that your 6 year old is ready to move up into one of our specialised programs, please feel free to get in contact with our office as we will make every effort to adjust to your needs.
