With the lack of government funding and a decreasing pool of suitably qualified staff, spark understands this current squeeze on the industry. Funds are tight and the ability to commit to expensive software is often a frightening thought. As providers, spark adds sparkESSENTIAL to their ‘bolt on’ range of software; for the curriculum and administration aspects of EYFS provision. ‘Save Our Souls’ comes to mind – Support Operations & Save!

For just around 1p per day per registered place, while incorporating paramount security early years settings will find there are no restrictions on numbers of children, families and staff or in the type of tablets/computers used. Costs remain the same for the first two years and there is an option to pay per calendar month. sparkESSENTIAL is a cost effective way for early years providers to ‘get it right’ for each child. To save time and money, whilst also supporting practitioners and the management team to provide optimum progress in children’s learning and development.

sparkESSENTIAL is exactly as it says ‘on the tin’. This EYFS software provides all the essential ingredients for EYFS curriculum and in keeping with an ethos of ‘continual improvement’, allows, progression later to use sparkPRO (which has extended features) if desired. Thoughtfully designed to be totally practical by practitioners, managers and with the business owner in mind, sparkESSENTIAL captures all the essential parts of sparkPRO (where all users have achieved an Ofsted of good or an outstanding rating).
