A 21st century learner is a strong, independent thinker who has the ability to compete effectively in a global environment. We offer your child the necessary, life-changing learning skills to access their full potential and prepare them for school and life.
Each FasTracKids® program offers a combination of learning skills known as the FasTrack® Advantages. These advantages focus on the process of learning or HOW to think, NOT simply memorizing the content of learning or WHAT to think, while having fun in the classroom!
The FasTrack Advantages:
Every FasTracKids lesson gives your child an opportunity to think through and answer problem-solving activities. This process of thinking trains students to analyze assumptions, come up with alternatives and make educated decisions. Critical thinking is an increasingly important component as students advance to college and in their professional life.
We know that children at this age learn best socially by being with a group of peers. Our collaborative classroom environment offers your child the opportunity to work with and learn from other students. This unique opportunity develops skills in organizing and planning, working collaboratively with others, giving and receiving feedback and evaluating their own learning. FasTracKids’ exercises help your child understand how to work as part of a team, improving their leadership abilities as well as cooperative skills. The collaborative classroom empowers your child to become a lifelong learner as they join with others.
The FasTracKids methodology empowers your child to expand and hone their creativity. Multiple opportunities arise in the classroom for your child to find and share creative solutions. Your child is continually encouraged to be constructively curious, which enhances cognitive development. Exposure to multiple subjects provides children with the opportunity to explore knew leanings and use their creativity in high level thinking situations. Our programs are the gateway for your child to think creatively, convey their thoughts and problem solve.
All FasTracKids classrooms are language rich environments where children hear and respond to stimulating conversation. This continuous interaction with advanced concepts lays a foundation for confident communication skills. Children are encouraged to speak in complete sentences in order to relay complex thoughts. Many programs in our FasTracKids Learning System give your child the opportunity to deliver a presentation that is videotaped and evaluated by peers.
The FasTracKids methodology provides a positive atmosphere in which we focus on how children are improving instead of their wrong answers. This constructive environment builds a child’s confidence as they successfully complete projects as individuals and in groups. Continued attempts at success allow them to take on challenges without the fear of failure. As your child becomes responsible for their own learning, FasTracKids programs cultivate their sense of achievement and pride with positive reinforcement.
