We are all told, “Express yourself” yet we are limited in our ways of expression. We are here to do just that; express through verbal and non-verbal language. Fasttrack-Languages serves as a vessel to foster and project our students and teachers own passions, and clue in loyal readers as to what inspires us in this crazy world. So, chose a class, join us, grow with us, relax, and lead on.
Reading Writing – Math
We are inspired by different developmental theorists, among them, Maria Montessori and Piaget.
In addition, we use four main methods to teach reading, writing and Math: phonics, look and say, language experience approach, and context support. Our approach for Math is based entirely on the child development theory and problem solving.
We follow the needs of our toddlers to help their learning and growing journey. In our time together, they develop communicative skills as they learn sounds and numbers. Likewise, they love engaging in our sensorial and practical life activities to grow their concentration, coordination, order and independence.
