Griswold Forward: Introduction to the Sparkler App

The Sparkler App is a free, evidence-based mobile application that is available in English and Spanish for all Connecticut families with children ages 0-5 years old.

Sparkler has tools to monitor your child's social-emotional, cognitive, communication, and physical development. It includes the Ages and Stages Questionnaire as well as suggestions for play-based learning activities to help support your child's ongoing development.

You can download the Sparkler App from the Apple Store to your iPhone or iPad or the Google Play Store if you have an Android phone or tablet.

To login:
- Current Griswold Elementary Pre-K families use: GriswoldPS
- Community members can use: Griswold

If you have questions or concerns about your child's development and do not wish to access the Sparkler App, you can call the 211 Child Development line at 1-800-505-7000 or contact Griswold Elementary School at 1-860-376-7610.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your child's development and look forward to being a collaborative partner in your child's educational journey!
