What is FasTracKids STEAM Enrichment Class?
FasTracKids STEAM Enrichment Class is the first step to acing the NYC Gifted & Talented Entrance Exam. The class is based on the belief that most children are potentially gifted if fed the proper intellectual and creative stimulation early-on.
The FasTracKids STEAM Class is designed to stimulate the mental development of potentially gifted 3- 7 year old children. It is a unique experience for children and complements preschool, home school, kindergarten and first grade programs. For 2 hours a week, this fast-paced, fun and fully interactive class captivates and entertains as it delivers truly meaningful lessons.
Our goals are to prepare children for school and life, develop creative thinking and problem solving skills, teach speaking and communication skills through videotaped exercises, teach the application and transfer of knowledge, promote leadership and personal growth and encourage a lifelong love of learning.

How do we do it?
We know that 80% of brain development is complete by age 8, 50% by age 5. This is the crucial window of opportunity for maximum cognitive development in all human beings. Our research based programs are based on “educational zigzagging” in which subject matter is addressed in many different ways. Our interactive whiteboard Learning Station combined with hands on experiments and projects creates a multi-sensory learning experience which has been proven to improve a child’s learning capability.
FasTracKids STEAM Enrichment is a fun-filled learning adventure for your child! With multi-sensory learning techniques and interactive technology, FasTracKids develops key learning skills such as critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration with the goal to prepare the whole child for school and for life.
Specifically designed for children between the ages 2 through 6, FasTracKids encourages creativity and brain development by taking advantage of your child’s most productive intellectual years.
FasTracKids STEAM Class increases vocabulary as well as social behavior 100% – 150% faster than peers, while school performance improves 1-2 grades.

How do we know it works?
Independent research by Wellesley College found that children enrolled in FasTracKids increased their expressive and receptive vocabularies as well as social skills such as cooperation, leadership, responsibility, empathy and self-control at a rate 100% to 150% faster than their peers not enrolled in FasTracKids. School-aged children in the study improved a minimum of one grade; some as much as two grades!
FasTracKids centers are in over 50 countries and our programs are taught in over 15 languages.
Over 93% of our graduates over the past 10 years, who start the program at age 3 years old, get accepted into NYC gifted & talented programs each year. Over half of these children are accepted into city-wide programs!
