FasTrack Discoverers is a Multi-Day Adventure for children ages 3 - 5. This innovative new program is designed specifically for the child who is ready to take the next step in the learning process! Created to provide a more seamless transition into a school environment, FasTrack Discoverers classes are a unique and age appropriate combination of curriculum.
Unlike other preschool programs which are primarily play based, our preschoolers have exposure to learning through our SmartBoard and to math and literacy concepts and elements of the Handwriting without Tears program. Each 2.5 hour class also features a music and movement segment. Best of all, you can choose to enroll two, three or five mornings a week. We offer rolling admissions so call us today to learn more!
Leading edge technology sets apart FasTrackids from other enrichment programs. Our FasTrack Discoverers utilize the Learning Station Smart Board for knowledge enrichment. 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. These videos are shared with parents.
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 FasTrack 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.
FasTrack 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.
