Though it is barely spring, soon summer will arrive and your child will be craving reading and math enrichment. Even if your child is gifted and talented, they are still at risk for summer learning loss. This phenomenon occurs with all children who do not participate in summer academic programs, causing them to be up to two months behind other students in the fall.
Fortunately, FasTracKids—with locations throughout New York City—offers fun and engaging enrichment programs over the summer. Their summer academic programs emphasize critical thinking and problem-solving skills so kids can not only keep up with their peers but potentially surpass grade-level expectations in the fall.
Skill-based in math, reading, and writing, the summer academic programs' teachers provide children with individualized attention as they increase their mental writing skills, reading comprehension, and math skills. Children ages five to 12 years old also have many opportunities to grow socially and emotionally through arts and crafts activities, board games, and computer and iPad games.
The summer academic program runs Monday through Friday with half-day, full-day, and early and extended day options. They also offer sibling discounts, as well as an early bird discount if you register before April 15, 2016. They offer summer tutoring and enrichment during afternoon and evening hours as well as weekends where children can keep their skills sharp while attending the center for as little as 1-2 hours per week. Also provided in the program is homework for the rest of the week so that the children can continue to progress while reviewing what they learned at the center.
Help your gifted and talented child stay engaged in the learning process by enrolling them in the reading and math enrichment programs at New York City's FasTracKids. They offer enrichment programs year-round as well as after-school programs. Visit their website to learn more about their school-year and summer programs and call (347) 983-2229 to sign up today.
