The Quest Zone

<strong>Established in 2000, The Quest Zone Afterschool Program has been a leader in on-site afterschool programs for two decades. We provide an interactive, fun and safe environment for your child after the school day ends.</strong><br /><br /><strong>Over the years we&rsquo;ve learned the importance of exposing students to new subjects and new approaches. But it&rsquo;s equally important for children to explore and experiment with what is interesting to them personally. At The Quest Zone, we pride ourselves on being flexible and nimble &ndash; adapting our programs to individual student interests.</strong><br /><br /><strong>Our program is designed around our unique brain-focused approach, which serves as the foundation for our Zones. Students can choose which Zones to participate in, and activities vary daily to always keep things fresh and exciting. With homework help, STEAM, creative arts, fitness and more, we make learning fun. <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">What are zones?</a></strong>
