Children are naturally curious, so why not let them discover something new? Similar to FasTrack® Explorers, FasTrack® Discoverers is a multi-day program that utilizes other FasTracKids programs in a subject-based curriculum. Using the FasTracKids® signature program along with developmentally appropriate activities, children 3 – 5 years old can improve their communication and language skills. Children are also introduced to activities that improve literacy, phonics, math and music knowledge while having fun. This program runs three hours a day, up to 5 days a week for 44 weeks.
FasTrack Discoverers is a teacher led program that provides a solid foundation for future academic growth in preschool aged children. By utilizing the teaching of creativity, communication, confidence, critical thinking and collaboration skills, FasTrack Discoverers is able to have child centered learning through an exciting, interactive program. The FasTrack Learning Station® is the driving force behind the Discoverers program and is evident in every FasTrack lesson.
With up to 9 different elements during a day, FasTrack Discoverers students are exposed to Educational Zigzagging℠. This method allows children to gather information through exposure to visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning, meeting the needs of various learning styles. During the language and literacy portion of the class, children learn about phonics and how to read and write. The math portion of class allows children to learn basic addition and subtraction, how to tell time and even the concept or recognition of currency or money. Music activities that integrate movement, rhymes and songs provide a creative outlet in every class.
