Every child is born with an unique set of gifts and talents. Since 1998, our FasTracKids® programs in centers and schools around the world have been providing children unique educational experiences to thrive in the 21st century. We created FasTracKids programs because we believe there is a way to teach children differently by engaging them in the way they learn naturally. We focus on young learners because early childhood is the most critical time period in a child’s life to develop their learning and thinking skills as well as building their emotional and social intelligence. All children deserve the opportunity to develop their potential for a successful future.
Our programs stimulate your child’s natural curiosity through the FasTrack® Advantages: skills for critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration and confidence. We combine engaging curriculum with a collaborative and fun-based environment to create a dynamic 21st century learner. Our goals are for your child to learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think, while creating a lifelong love of learning.
