FasTracKids Objective & Mission
FasTracKids® has a single objective and that is:
To provide quality, early learning programs worldwide through its Franchisees.
The mission that it shares with its Franchisees is:
To provide fun, interactive early learning programs while infusing a love of learning in children through preschool, early elementary school and beyond.
The philosophy of the FasTracKids early learning programs begins with a child-centered classroom. Students will discover their own abilities and potential to learn inside a classroom focused on an interactive education. The children will have the opportunity to work in close cooperation with the instructor and will learn to expand their thoughts and to communicate effectively. Each child is encouraged to explore their world and gain the confidence needed to engage fully in the early learning process.
Research shows that the size of children’s vocabulary and social skills is directly linked to how they perform in school. Independent testing by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) demonstrates that a significant number of three to six year old children enrolled in FasTracKids® improved their vocabulary and social skills at a rate 100% to 150% times faster than their peers not enrolled in the program. All children in the study improved. Children who were kindergarten-aged advanced as much as one grade level and some of those students improved up to two grade levels.
For years, FasTracKids parents, teachers and directors have seen firsthand the impact of FasTracKids programs on children and their academic careers.
“Shaan attended FasTracKids for a year and a half before entering kindergarten this year. At our first parent/teacher meeting, my husband and I were surprised and very pleased to hear that Shaan was not only doing well, but was already prepared to enter 1st grade.”

“It has been a wonderful experience for Smaran at FasTracKids. He started when he was 3 and will be finishing the end of February 2009. When he first started, he used to be very shy and was not very communicative. But now, he has progressed so well that he outsmarts everyone at school. He has learned a lot from FasTracKids, especially social skills, team work and communication skills. We are very happy with his progress. In fact, we are planning to enroll our daughter in this program, too.”
– Preetha and Subramanyan, Parents of FasTracKid Smaran (Age 5)
“We watched Landon’s love for learning increase exponentially when he started FasTracKids last year. He already loved to learn new things and your teaching methods definitely supported that and heightened his curiosity even more. We believe he is at a critical (st)age and we are excited that we supplemented homeschooling with FasTracKids and even happier that it was such a perfect marriage and that Landon loves learning as much as, or more than, kids love candy.”
– Sophie, Parent of FasTracKid Landon (Age 5)
“I have found that learning for my 3-year-old is more than just memorizing the ABCs, colors and shapes. The learning is fun and you get a lot for your money.”
– Mike, Parent of FasTracKid Ally
“Shaan attended FasTracKids for a year and a half before entering kindergarten this year.

” No other Early Childhood program, in my opinion, has shown such dramatic results in so short a time period.”
– New York Public School Principal
“The students enrolled in FasTracKids, when they reach primary school, are more eager to learn and to ask questions about Why and How. I can also state that these students have better speaking and communication skills, they have developed their leadership skills, they know how to apply and transfer knowledge and, generally speaking, they have enriched their education throughout the Program.”
– Elementary School Principal in Portugal
“I really like my FasTracKids class. I love to see and touch the whiteboard because there I have learned new things that I can then share with my friends. I also like to be filmed by the camera and then see what we said. FasTracKids has helped me pay better attention to what I’m learning and to know better the world I live in.”
– Giovanni, FasTracKids student in Venezuela
