Fox Valley United Way’s SPARK Early Childhood Collaboration partnered with The Aurora Housing Authority, Aurora Public Library, The DuPage Children’s Museum, Fox Valley Park District, and World Relief to host free playgroups for families throughout the community. These playgroups are meant to SPARK a love of learning and encourage positive parent/child interactions.

We are grateful to Illinois Action for Children and the Community Parenting Support Saturation Grant for helping us bring these playgroups to the communities. The Community Parenting Support Saturation Project is generously funded by our philanthropic partners: Crown Family Philanthropies, CME Group, Dunham Foundation, J.B. and M.K. Pritzker Family Foundation, Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation, Irving Harris Foundation, Robert R. McCormick Foundation, and Steans Family Foundation.
