Families love our medical daycares

“They think of your child first. Your child goes first in their mind. And they'll do anything to make your child happy, and yourself. It's wonderful how well they seem to be able to link the two... They've been able to satisfy the both of us."

The communication is phenomenal and aids with easing you down when you get those nervous waves that come with leaving your child else where and you aren’t present. Every nurse and staff member works very well with attempting to accommodate the needs of the child and make you the parent feel secure with their stay every single day. Transportation is super safe and easy due to the constant attention to detail that is applied for the children.

When my son was receiving treatment, we were there together for about 10 months. It was just me, him, and a hospital setting. How do I start to detach from that? My Spark center staff, from day one, kept the communication going … and that helped a lot.

Mom of 4-year-old son

I am Haitian and my son was born in Haiti. So it’s a pleasure for me that there is a Haitian lady there … she's like my family… And [she] told me that they feed [my son] rice and beans. I was happy to hear that. Let’s feed him good with the heartbeat of food!

Father of 15-year-old son

I love [Spark]. I wish my boys could stay longer … They know how to crawl now! One of my babies, he's trying to walk and he knows how to stand up. There’s a lot that they're teaching them at PPEC that they were never taught before.

Mom to NICU twins

I don't know how many more words I can use to thank Spark … because [my daughter] wouldn't be where she is right now if it wasn't for PPEC. They were able to give her the attention she needed. The medication she needed. They made her feel loved.

Mom of 6-year-old daughter

It has to be clear for me that I'm gonna put my baby somewhere that I like and that I feel safe … And when I went to Spark, I can say that the center staff were the ones that gave me confidence… They explained how it works and gave me a lot of information… And I can tell you that I have a PPEC close to my house, but … Spark is the one that makes me feel better and comfortable.

Mom of 1-year-old son

[My sons] are very complex, and they have a lot of demands. So anyone that has to work with them has to really know them, it’s really important they know how to deal with them, and it's something that I see in [the staff at Spark]. Because they know them, and they know they are very complex, and they know they need special attention.

Foster mom to two sons

I’m a single mom and they see that … They lent me a helping hand and they’d say, “Just let us know. We can help out daily with your kids. We can work around you…” This school is such a big help. Not only for me, but for my son. Because I love people that love my kids, and they really do love [my son]. They bend over backwards for [my son] like he’s their child.

Mom of 5-year-old son

We chose [Spark] services so my child would be included. She’s surrounded by kids that are like her.

Parent, Houston Center

We chose [Spark] because we had a challenging year the year prior. My mother passed away and she was my support. I wasn’t interested in the school system because I know my daughter needs specialized care. PPECC was a better option for us because I still wanted the opportunity for socialization without using the school system. The service has been a godsend.

Parent, Houston Center

I can say from the experience I’ve had with Spark that it’s the best place for the kids. You know, the kids who need [support]. And if I have a friend or family who has kids like my son, we recommend them to go to Spark because they treat them very well.

They think of your child first. Your child goes first in their mind. And they'll do anything to make your child happy, and yourself. It's wonderful how well they seem to be able to link the two. Because sometimes you can only satisfy a child and the parent won't be happy, but that hasn't happened with me. They've been able to satisfy the both of us.

Mom of 6-year-old daughter

My son has been attending Spark for more than a year and we absolutely love, love Spark. The nurses and staff take the best care of the children and I know my son is in a great environment where he can learn and play. His cognition abilities have improved since attending Spark and they always have the best activities for the children throughout the week!

Here to answer all of your questions

What does a child's day look like at Spark Pediatrics?

In the morning, we pick them up and bring them to our center. There, they'll typically engage in alternating sessions of learning and fun, care and therapy, meals, and naptime. Every child's schedule is personalized to their care plan and developmental needs, and they are assigned groups based on developmental age. We prioritize their medical care first, but strive to provide a balance of engaging, enriching activities that stimulate mental and social development. Therapy is also provided at the center according to their providers' recommendations. Every evening, we offer return transportation that accommodates the family's schedule.

What does Spark Pediatrics do differently?

We are a nationwide PPEC. Our network of centers have provided care for children with a wide range of medical conditions. So we’ve developed our standards of care and safety from our combined wealth of pediatric experience across all locations. We’ve learned what provides the best outcomes, but we are constantly evolving our approach with the latest research and equipment. At Spark Pediatrics, every child has a chance to learn, play, and develop bonds and friendships in a social daycare setting.

How do we work with families?

We’ll collaborate with the family on their child's care plan, and work directly with their doctors and specialists to set goals and meet their medical needs. Their care plan will be regularly revisited to ensure we’re adapting to their development. We update families with daily communications and meet regularly to review our overall care. We know that care doesn’t stop when children go home, so we offer family-centered education and resources to support them.

How does our nursing team differ from home care?

All of our nurses and aides are required to have recent pediatric experience. Every center is managed by a Director of Nursing with NICU and/or pediatric intensive care experience. Our team always includes at least one registered nurse (RN) working alongside licensed practical nurses (LPNs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), and home health aides (HHAs). They care for children with a wide range of conditions, providing medical care and supporting overall development. Private-duty nurses who provide home care are primarily licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and home health aides (HHAs) who are only permitted to administer medical care.
