Extended Day Program
Quest Academy's Extended Day Program provides a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment where children can enjoy playing with other students as well participating in a variety of planned activities.
In our program we focus on the needs and interests of the children by offering adult-directed and child-initiated activities.
The "home base" for extended care is the Quest Academy lunchroom. Outdoor play, games in the gym, arts and crafts, imaginative play, Legos, board games, and building toys are engaging and enjoyed by all students. Older children have opportunities for socializing with peers and a monitored computer lab/study hall.
The program is designed to be "drop-in" so parents who find themselves running late for the pick-up time are assured that their child is being cared for by our extended day staff. No need to pre-register to use the extended day program - this is a convenience and benefit for our families.

"Several of us, parents and teachers . . . were talking late one afternoon when we saw a group of children playing four-square outside on the playground. Their laughter as they ran in and out from the school reminded us of times from our own childhoods. Naturally, times have changed, yet something about a cool fall evening, the deepening darkness, running in and out, and the freedom of playing four-square, was the same and seemed a very important part of what the school offers children. It didn't appear to be quite captured in a curriculum description or activities listed in the [Extended Day Program] brochure. It was hard to pinpoint exactly what it was about the image that seemed so important. Maybe it was the contrast to a child sitting inside watching television alone. It speaks to being responsive to a parent's needs in today's world; it speaks to developing a child's sense of independence and joy in a homelike environment."
