How does it work?

BabySparks is an expert-created early childhood development program, trusted by more than 7 million parents and caregivers around the world. We provide tools for parents and caregivers to help children ages 0-3 reach their full potential.

Live classes are held via Zoom, a video meeting platform. You will see the expert, other participants (video for participants is encouraged but optional) and, depending on the class, you may see materials that the expert shares (power point slides, for example). Zoom allows for interaction between the expert and participants. All live classes offer Q&A, but may be more interactive depending on the expert and the class.

You can access your classes a couple of ways: 1) Go to “My Classes” in your profile and click the “Join Now” button, or 2) You will receive an email 30-minutes before the class with a button to enter.

You can access BabySparks classes from any device that is connected to the internet.

Any reason you missed your class? Not to worry - Up to 24 hours before the class starts, you can email our team at and we will be happy to help you move to a future session of the class, or wait for the class recording to be posted on the class page and watch it at your convenience.
