FasTracKids International Franchise
FasTracKids International is a franchise for a center providing academic assistance for children. It was founded in 1997 when an educator met an entrepreneur.
They had a vision on helping children become better problem solvers, communicators, and leaders. They designed a workbook based curriculum. In 1998, they purchased the intellectual rights to the curriculum and they started developing the early education program. In their curriculum, they expose the children to 12 subject areas while using different senses like visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile. With this teaching method, the child uses all senses and therefore delivering a more consistent and high quality education.
They expanded internationally and started teaching in English and Spanish in different countries like Australia, Mexico, Malaysia, Venezuela, and Singapore. An independent test was conducted by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) on children who were enrolled in FasTracKids. In their research, they found that all their students have an improved vocabulary and social skills which are the primary link for a child to perform well in school. They also concluded that their students improved by about 100% to 150% compared to other children not enrolled to their program. Some students have improved a level or two higher.
