About FasTracKids New York City
FasTracKids offers programs and classes for children ages 2-14. Our centers operate two flagship programs, including the G&T 101: FasTracKids STEAM Enrichment & the Academic Math, Reading, Writing, and English Tutoring and Enrichment Programs.
FasTracKids Core Enrichment is based on the belief that most children are potentially gifted if provided with the proper intellectual and creative stimulation early on. We offer a two hour per week, two year enrichment program that enhances a child’s development and can be used in addition to a child’s regular preschool, Pre-K, or kindergarten.
Our Academic Math and Reading, Writing Tutoring & Enrichment programs are administered by NYC’s best expert tutors. Our programs start with a course intended for four year olds and continue on through the end of middle school. Through a unique combination of expertly crafted learning materials, individualized curriculum, small group “mastery” teaching, and a step-by-step approach, our academic tutoring & enrichment program has proven to be one of the world’s most successful supplemental education programs serving over 3.0 million children worldwide!
Because of our unique experience in educating some of New York City’s brightest children with our own in-house “Gifted & Talented” Programs, we have crafted a highly effective gifted and talented test preparation program for students in grades K-3rd who are seeking entrance into such programs.
In the summer, we offer a unique academic / arts & science enrichment program. This program allows children to beat the summer brain drain by providing a multifaceted enrichment learning experience, all while still maintaining a fun and exciting summer adventure for children where there is no homework or test taking. This program offers flexible attendance options and is quite affordable.
Frequently Asked Questions about FasTracKids
My child goes to daycare, do they need FasTracKids classes too?
We believe our classes compliment any existing programs your child attends. Our program is unique in that it offers a learn-through-play loosely structured curriculum that slowly prepares children for the classroom. Our programs help with gradual separation, something that daycare and other activities do not focus on.
Are the teachers fully qualified?
Definitely. Our teachers are successful University Graduates and cleared by DOJ/FBI background checks. Our learning center directors monitor the teachers weekly to ensure quality of services administered. Our franchise-approved and trained teachers provide top of the line instruction for your child. Most of our teachers also hold positions or are studying for careers in psychology, higher education, special education or academics.
Does FasTracKids push kids too hard?
Absolutely not. We pride ourselves on the customization qualities of our program. Each child is given unconditional and independent attention by our teachers. Our teachers will learn where your child is when the enroll in the program and will softly guide them to where you would like them to be by the end of the program. It is our goal to help all children explore their world and discover their own unique gifts and talents, at their own pace.
I don’t have any FasTracKids Learning Centers near me, what can I do?
Please let us know where you live! We may be able to suggest a location that is not too far from where you live. We also like to know where the demand is for our programs. If we find enough parents in a specific neighborhood want our programs, we may just make it happen!
My child is turning 5 at the beginning of the year and I don’t know whether to send them to school. How do I know if they’re ready?
School readiness is not a black and white topic. Each child has their own way of thinking, communicating and learning. Throughout their time with us, our teachers will keep track of their growth and by the time they graduate from our G&T101 or Preschool program, our teachers will have a transparent and honest suggestion on whether or not they are ready for the classroom.
