If the answer is yes, you will sign the agreement and finish the remainder of the Operations training. If the answer is no, we will part friends.
Read more about the FasTracKids curriculum From its start in 1998, FasTracKids has had an international focus. Our first franchisees were located around the world in Australia, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, the United States, and Venezuela. Our first program offerings were in English and Spanish. Today, FasTracKids centers and schools can be found in over 47 countries and its programs are translated in 19 languages.
• Teacher-led programs for children as young as 6-months-old up to 8-years-old that build cognitive, emotional and social skills. • Range of offerings designed to optimize classroom usage, attract a wide market and maximize your revenues. • Opportunity designed for participation in a growing children’s educational business sector.
Take two children from similar environments and backgrounds – one attended the FasTracKids program, the other did not. In just six months, the FasTracKids student shows significant, measurable improvement in skills directly correlated to learning success in both school and non-school environments.
“Findings of this study illustrate the important link between FasTracKids’ curriculum and children’s performances in vocabulary and social skills,” say Dr. Georgia Hall, study director of Wellesley College’s National Institute of Out-of-School time. “The study suggests that the program’s innovative approach works.”
“This study backs up what parents and teachers around the world have been telling us for years: FasTracKids changes kids’ lives dramatically in ways that other programs have not,” says Nancy Faunce, President and CEO. “We continually hear how children participating in FasTracKids learn to creatively solve problems, master challenges and demonstrate leadership behaviors within the classroom, at home and on the playground. All of these skills are invaluable throughout one’s life.”
