Preschool: Discoverers (ages 3-4)
Our upper east side pre school Discoverers program provides a solid foundation for future academic growth in preschool aged children.
FasTrack®Discoverers is a multi-day program and subject-based curriculum. Through developmentally appropriate activities, children 3 – 5 years old can improve their communication and language skills. Children are also introduced to activities that improve handwriting, literacy, phonics, math and music knowledge while having fun. This program runs three hours a day, 3 – 5 days a week.
FasTrack Discoverers is a child-centered program that provides a solid foundation for future academic growth in preschool aged children. By focusing on the development of a child’s creativity, communication, confidence, critical thinking and collaboration skills, FasTrackDiscoverers is able to have child centered learning through an exciting, interactive program.
FasTrack Discoverers students are exposed to Educational Zigzagging℠. This method allows children to gather and repeat information through different visual, auditory and kinesthetic methods, meeting the needs of various learning styles. During the language and literacy portion of the class, children learn about phonics and how to read and write. The math portion of class allows children to learn basic addition and subtraction, how to tell time and even the concept or recognition of currency or money. Music activities that integrate movement, rhymes and songs provide a creative outlet in every class. We have also integrated the “Handwriting Without Tears”, multi-sensory curriculum which develops early writing skills.
