Kindergarten

Faculty

At Quest, we know that children are curious and love to explore the world around them. In kindergarten, we understand that children learn most effectively and deeply through experiences. Our kindergarten classrooms provide both structure and choice. We establish daily routines to help children to learn how to self-regulate.

An integrated thematic approach is utilized in developing the skills and concepts that will be introduced and practiced throughout the school year.

Special Subjects

All students at Quest Academy benefit from a robust learning experience that extends beyond the core classes of math, science, language arts, and social studies.  By incorporating special subjects into their weekly schedule, students develop specific skill sets, new methods for engaging with material, and make cross-curricular connections that are both intentional in the Quest curriculum as well as uniquely discovered by each child.
