Is your child prepared to succeed in our ever-changing world? FasTracKids® teaches preschool and early elementary school-aged children 3 – 7 years old to use creativity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration skills through fun, interactive activities. Using the FasTrack Learning Station®, children explore 10 subjects ranging from traditional topics such as biology, astronomy, and art as well as subjects not usually covered in early learning like economics, technology, and goals & life lessons. A 80 week program held once a week for two hours gives your child the necessary skills to succeed in school and in life. A modular curriculum allows for enrollment of a student at any time.
Children learn by seeing, hearing, touching and doing. Children control the pace of the class by responding to the classroom teacher and content presented from the FasTrack Learning Station. FasTracKids is taught on the Learning Station, which integrates CD-ROM lessons with an interactive whiteboard. Videotaping of presentations and what children have learned from a lesson provides feedback to parents and documented progress. FasTracKids lessons utilize a unique methodology called Educational Zigzagging. Activities change frequently in order to maintain the interest of the children and helping them to develop focus and concentration skills. An 8:1 student to teacher ratio with up to 16 children in a class allows time for personal attention from teachers.
FasTracKids focuses on the process of learning (how) as well as the content of the lessons (what). Each of the two hour lessons explains the how and what of the 12 different subjects, prompting children to ask Why? FasTracKids includes fun, attention-grabbing topics such as: Astronomy, Biology, Communications, Creative Literature, Creativity, Earth Science, Economics, Goals and Life Lessons, Mathematics, Natural Science, Speech, Drama and Art, and Technology. Children have 16 hours of instruction for each subject area. Parent conferences are conducted throughout the program, offering opportunities for in-person discussions about a child’s progress.
