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 Tutoring & Enrichment Math and Reading, Writing and English Programs are expertly crafted academics development tutoring & enrichment programs, starting with a course intended for four year olds and continuing on until 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.
