With a mixture of hands-on activities, communication, public speaking skills, focus on language and numbers, children get a fun and balanced early education. This program runs three hours a day, up to 5 days a week for 44 weeks.
FasTrack® Explorers 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 Explorers is able to have child centered learning through an exciting, interactive program. Math elements, such as number, sequence and pattern activities are foundational exercises for future learning. Phonics elements provide language activities that encourage children to play, create and expand verbal vocabulary. Music activities are also used in FasTrack Explorers to increase gross motor skills and auditory discrimination with children’s rhymes. The FasTrack Learning Station® is the driving force behind the Explorers program and is evident in every FasTrack Explorers lesson.
