Preschool & Jr. Kindergarten

At Quest Academy, our approach to Early Childhood Education is based on asking the question: "What does it feel like to be a child in this environment day after day after day?

  • Do I feel that I belong here or am I just one of the crowd?
  • Am I usually glad to be here, rather than eager to leave?
  • Do I find many of the activities engaging, interesting, absorbing, and challenging rather than just entertaining or exciting?
  • Do I find most of my experiences here meaningful rather than frivolous or boring?
  • Do I find most of the experiences satisfying rather than frustrating or confusing?

When young children engage in serious in-depth investigations of significant elements of their environments and experiences, their minds are challenged and active.  In that state, they learn.  In addition, the purpose of academic skills such as writing, measuring, and others, becomes relevant to them, sparking an intrinsic motivation to build those skills.
 
The ability to enjoy relationships and work together is also very important.  Children need to enjoy being in school. They need to love their school and the interactions that take place there.  Their expectations of these interactions is critical. It is also important for the teachers to enjoy being with the other teachers, to enjoy seeing the children stretch their capacities and use their intelligence, to enjoy interactions with the children.  All these parts are essential.
