“Back then, there were no gifted learning centers in New York. We were true pioneers,” says Franco.
Confident in the research-backed approach provided by FasTracKids, the Verdinos adopted the philosophy that, with the proper instruction and reinforcement, most children could perform at the levels that qualify them as gifted.
“Our unique approach of building skills, traits, characteristics, and vocabulary, starting at the early age of 2 to 3 years old, was and still is truly innovative and impactful,” says Franco.
The Brooklyn location’s first 3-year-old group graduated with well over 90% acceptance into NYC Gifted Programs. Having seen the program produce real-world results, the newly invigorated team became determined to expand to all neighborhoods in NYC.
“We are excited to be servicing the Upper East Side market with our cumulative expertise in providing NYC’s best and most effective enrichment programs. With our long track-record of success, we look forward to continuing to make a big impact on children’s educational outcomes, in Manhattan and throughout the boroughs," says Franco.
