  • Who: Carousel of Languages
  • Where: Upper East side neighborhood
  • When: Open for ages 2 to 12
  • Why: Develop critical thinking skill
  • What: Learn from 10 foreign language
  • Bonus: Explore camps, classes and birthday party venues

Carousel of Languages tailors each program to meet student requirement, with consideration to his or her learning style. The small class sizes enable complete student participation. Native-speaking teachers not only act as international ambassadors but they help broaden the understanding of diversity leading to pride in shared heritage and strengthening family bonds. By learning foreign languages, children develop critical thinking skills, enhance creativity and improve mental flexibility. Instructors guide children on their language journey through an immersive environment, customized materials and native-speaking tools. Studying languages has been found to help with math, reading and standardized testing performance.

LANGUAGES: Exposure to multiple language challenges the brain to recognize, decipher meaning and communicate within a different context thus impacting decision making and critical thinking across other disciplines and studies.Children can learn a new language as early as 3 to 6 months but by their third birthday their ability to be open to language learning decreases, while other skills develop. Bilingual children develop better listening capabilities and find their English skills improve especially in writing, reading, editing and speaking.

Help your child by visiting our community and learning more about the benefits of language.

  • WHO: FasTracKids
  • WHAT: STEM, pre-school, test prep, math tutors, reading tutors, writing tutors, educational preschool, gifted and test-prep programs
  • WHERE: Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan and Queens
  • WHEN: Ages 2 and up

FasTracKids believes that with proper instruction, most children can perform at the gifted level. It provides fun, interactive earl-learning programs while infusing a love of learning in pre-school to elementary school students. Emphasis is placed on early learning where it’s believed active development at this age sets the stage for a child’s future success.

FasTracKids weaves together some of the most prominent, international educational philosophies to ensure that your child’s learning occurs at a level that is appropriate for their age but helps them reach their potential.

RESEARCH SHOWS: the size of a child’s vocabulary and social skills is directly linked to how they perform in school.  Independent testing by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) validates that a considerable number of three to six-year-old children enrolled in FasTracKids® improved their vocabulary and social skills at a rate 100% to 150% times faster than their peers not enrolled in the program. All children in the study improved.  Children who were kindergarten-aged advanced as much as one grade level and some of those students improved up to two grade levels.
