FasTracKids: organic learning goes global

After observing a two-hour FasTracKids class, I wanted to be four years old again. This unique learning experience was so much fun!

Surrounded by bright graphics and a live video of a kids class, I attended a FasTracKids session in NYC with guest speaker, CEO Nancy Faunce, along with parents and a dozen lively 3 & 4 year olds. According to Faunce, “Children are born learning….By enriching their innate, personal drive to learn, we can expand their horizons and nourish their lifelong love of learning…this enrichment is a more organic approach than what is found in any other learning setting because it values learning for its own sake.”

It seems that all the parents agreed that their child is more articulate, confident and extremely eager to attend their weekly class. Many parents in attendance also enroll their 5 or 6-year olds, explaining that these kids much prefer their weekly, 2-hour FasTracKids class to any of their regular school classes or activities.

Equipped with CD-based lessons, an LCD projector and an interactive Learning Station, the FasTracKids teacher guides each child through a “zigzag” modular-based, learning format which fosters concentration, communication, self-esteem and independence in kids. The guided audio-video stimulation and live interactivity engages them completely, and makes learning fun. Each child is interviewed and videotaped before the close of each class so parents can personally track their child’s educational progress and skills development.

Enriching a child’s development is one of the most rewarding things in life. And thanks to FasTracKids, enrichment is available around the world. You can learn more about FasTracKids and find a location near you, or even set up a franchise.
