Building core concepts skills at a young age is essential to realize lasting benefits for your child.  With studies showing that about one third of children’s intellectual skills will be developed by age six, it is important to increase your child’s exposure to a variety of learning experiences at an earliest possible age to fully take advantage of the opportunity to excel in school and in life.

We believe that play is essential for a child.  However, learning trough play or as we call it “Learning Cleverly Disguised as Fun” will ensure your child has the tools he/she needs to be successful in the classroom.

We also focus on developing communication skills and videotape segments of each class to help children overcome shyness and to communicate their ideas more clearly. Our curriculum covers a wide range of humanity and science based topics, from Astronomy and Economics to Creativity and Biology!!!!

The music and movement portion of our FasTrackids Discoverers classes combine a carefully planned curriculum with group activities to foster self-esteem & develop social skills for all students.

Independent research has shown that children enrolled in FasTracKids improve their expressive and receptive vocabularies 100-150% faster than their peers! These verbal skills are the most important measure in the ERB test for the NYC independent schools.

FasTrackids Math and Literacy Curriculum

This portion of Discoverers focuses on phonics & numbers. By introducing a letter of the day that ties together with our academic lesson, children explore the phonics of the letter throughout the class and apply the speech sounds of the letter to other words they know. Identifying, counting and exploring numbers is also incorporated into each class.
