Spark Education, one of the world’s leading STEM education providers, officially opened its first offline learning center in Melbourne, Australia on April 14, 2024. Following successful launches in Singapore, China, the United States, and Canada, the opening of this seventh offline learning center globally marks Spark’s further expansion into international markets and consolidates its leading position in the global education market.

Driven by its mission to inspire a passion for learning and ignite lifelong growth, Spark Education focuses on education for students aged 3-12, cultivating a love of learning from a young age and shaping the trajectory of their lifelong growth. The location of the new offline learning center in Balwyn, Melbourne, is an ideal match for Spark, as the area is home to several prestigious educational institutions, including Balwyn High School, Balwyn Primary School, Fintona Girls’ School, Camberwell Grammar School, and Carey Baptist Grammar School, among others. Balwyn is a hub that attracts families seeking not just a residence but also a community deeply invested in education.

During his speech on the opening day, Wilson Li, Spark Education’s CFO and GM of Global Offline Business, commented, “In 2018, we launched our first class with the goal of improving the learning experience and outcomes for children with the help of technology, and we have continued to pursue this goal, helping students around the world discover the joy of learning. We have chosen Melbourne not only for its rich educational landscape but also for the community that values educational quality. Our new learning center here in Balwyn is testament to our commitment to student-centricity and providing the best learning experience and highest quality education globally.”

Spark will initially launch its Spark Math and Spark Chinese courses in the new directly operated offline learning center in Melbourne, with plans to introduce other high-quality courses, including Spark Coding and Spark Chess, that will enrich the learning experience for students in Australia, as it has done in many other countries to date.

Concurrent with this launch, Spark Education begins to offer its comprehensive licensing solution for partners such as afterschool programs and child care centers in Australia and New Zealand regions and beyond. Spark offers a series of services including high-quality curricula for math and Chinese language, interactive courseware with class materials, center and classroom design, hardware and software, as well as end-to-end support with financing, operations, training, and marketing. Spark’s programs are already being offered in over 900 locations through licensing partnerships.

Spark Education has served close to 700,000 students worldwide and has garnered over 30,000 students in Australia and New Zealand with its online small-group classes. The brand and its offerings are well-recognized and loved by students and families in the region, and many have been eagerly anticipating in-person learning options with Spark in the post-pandemic era.
