Our vision

We focus on children with complex needs

We seek to be the leading provider of services for families of children with complex medical needs. 

A mission to have an impact

Before Spark Pediatrics, children with complex medical needs were left behind by the medical and care communities, stuck at home or in a hospital. Reliable care was hard to come by. Daycares were not equipped or trained to support their condition. Childhoods were spent in isolation. 

We envisioned a safe and joyful place for these children. Our medical daycares offer the most advanced medical care and therapies in a social daycare setting. Children can experience friendships and participate in activities designed just for them. Families can rest assured that we are uniquely able to understand and meet their child’s needs. 

Our team has decades of combined experience supporting a wide range of conditions. We have an ambition to ensure every child has a chance to develop and reach their full potential. And we work within our local and medical communities to better support our families.

Our Principles

Advocate for our families

Ensure safety and inclusivity
