For 2 hours a week, children 4 to 8 years old meet for a fast-paced interactive program called FasTracKids Core. The idea is to prepare children for life while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills. The age group was chosen by the latest in brain development research that shows the brain is 50% developed by age 5 and 80% by age 8 making this a very important window of opportunity to make an impression on young minds. This program works as a supplement for home school, preschool, kindergarten, and first grade.
