At Spark Therapy Group we believe...

A child’s job is to play. Playing is the backbone of how a child learns.

We recognize that every child is a unique individual that needs to be nurtured to ignite their inner spark and achieve their full potential.

Our therapy focuses on play-based approaches that integrate a child’s individual motivation to propel them into a state of accelerated learning.
