Our mission is to support students to grow in their communication abilities. The world can be explored through language: verbal and non-verbal. Therefore, we foster an environment where students develop language skills and start exploring a bigger world.
The Parent Handbook has been written to describe our program, philosophy, policies, and all the practical details that go into making each day as happy and successful as possible. Please carefully read this handbook and keep it for future reference.
Fasttrack-Language program is designed for students to accomplish individual goals within a group. These goals include:
Our enrichment program runs all year round and caters to multiple ages of students.
We strive to hire experienced and qualified instructors who enjoy supporting learning and growth. These qualified individuals are closely supervised and supported by a skilled linguist and certified classroom instructor with Montessori training
Our Payments Options:
-Fees are charged based on the number of sessions the student will be attending per program-season.
– There are two seasons per year; fall and winter / spring and summer. It is Fasttrack-Languages’ decision to collect the season payment in full on or before the first session of participation in our program.
• Make up sessions are allowed, with advanced notice, and will have to be used within seven days of the missed class.
Documents to be completed and returned before starting a class:
Proper communication between our parents and the teachers at Fasttrack-Languages is extremely important. Teachers will be sending home information on a regular basis through emails or a phone call if necessary. Concerns about any aspect of our program, or your child’s development may be expressed to the program director, Johanna Ocampo.
Remember to communicate in writing any changes in your child’s schedule. We must be informed, in writing, regarding any changes in the person picking up your child. You may add or delete names of authorized adults allowed to pick- up your child on the Child Information Record.
Drop-off and Pick-up Policies
Parents are expected to drop off their child at the center. The teachers are glad to assist you and your child at your drop-off time. Children must be picked up right after their session ends. No child will be released to anyone who is not authorized to pick up that child.
What to Bring
We do not offer any food or snacks to our students since they only spend a short period of time with us for any specific session. Please remember to bring a labeled bottle of water and snacks foryour child if you believe they will need them.
Fasttrack-Languages will be closed on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the Friday after Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. If any of the above holidays fall on a weekend, the closest Friday or Monday will be selected. However you may check our Holidays & Promo section for drop off on certain dates.
Fasttrack-Languages does not follow public or private schools’ designated snow days. It is not common, yet we may open a little late if necessary and we may be forced to close due to a situation beyond our control (e.g., winter storm, electrical outage, no water service). Every attempt will be made to inform parents of an emergency closing or delayed start time.
Changes in Policies
The fees, procedures, and policies stated in this handbook are subject to be changed at the discretion of the center director or center owners. This Fasttrack-Languages Parent Handbook revised: July 2019.
You are the best judge of your child’s health and we trust you will not bring a sick child to the center. However, if while in our care your child becomes ill or displays an unknown rash, your child’s instructor will consult the director and you may be called to come take your child home. When called, you (or an alternate emergency person) are expected to come immediately. This is to protect the health of your child and his/her peers. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Fasttrack-Languages makes every attempt to keep parents up to date on happenings here at the center and in the community. Informative emails are sent out at least 5 times a season. Notices are sent out at least monthly through email. Please read them. It is the parents’ responsibility to keep up to date by checking their emails or calling the center.
