Hearing + Seeing = Knowing Your Child is Learning!
Progress reports, a FasTracKids Parents website and videos help parents experience their child’s education first hand!
Parents play a very important and influential part in a child’s education. Education.com‘s article titled “What Research Says on Parent Involvement in Children’s Education” shows that the earlier a parent gets involved with their child’s education, the more successful they are going to be. At FasTracKids®, we don’t just enroll children, we enroll families. We welcome and expect parental involvement.
FasTracKids progress reports are sent out during the year and are on a “reflective scale” (using words to describe progress instead of number or letter grades). Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled to allow parents and teachers to establish learning goals and track progress for each individual child.
Technology also helps FasTracKids and parents monitor a child’s progress in the program. Children are video-recorded, presenting what they have learned in class that day. Not only do children develop the skills to make well-planned, poised presentations and develop self-confidence, but parents are able to see what their child has learned from each lesson. A library of videotapes shows progress from one class to the next, cataloging a child’s development.
The FasTracKids Parents website offers a review of each lesson and additional activities to do at home to support what a child has learned. FasTracKids Centers also offer a “parent class”, where parents experience for themselves the unique FasTracKids curriculum.
Our goal at FasTracKids is to support parents in preparing your children for school and developing a lifelong love of learning.
