Quest Kids Childcare
Welcome to Quest Kids!
We are a licensed afterschool program located at Quest University Canada.
Quest Kids operates Monday to Friday from bell dismissal to 6:00pm when school is in session. We will be accepting up to 10 children each day from Kindergarten to Grade 7 at Garibaldi Highlands Elementary. (Additional schools may be considered; please contact us directly)
A day in the life of a Quest Kid will look something like this:
• 3:00-3:30pm – Children are picked up at their classroom doors by Program Leaders
• 3:30-4:00pm – Play on the school playground and walk up to Quest University
• 4:00-4:30pm – Healthy snack provided
• 4:30-5:30pm – Program Leaders run the Club or activity for the day
• 5:30-6:00pm – Quiet board games and clean up
• 6:00pm – Parent pick up
We here at Quest Kids are strong believers of utilizing our natural environment and accessing the amazing spaces we have to live in. On most days you will find us outside exploring our backyard, getting dirty and actively playing. The philosophy of Quest Kids is based on Quest University Canada’s innovative educational model where we nurture the interest of the child and emphasize hands-on experiences. We have some amazing resources at our fingertips and intend to have your children experience all that Squamish and Quest University Canada has to offer.
We are also strong believers in the Physical Literacy movement and having our Quest Kids build the foundations for becoming active for life. We will incorporate daily physical activity into our programming to ensure your child not only has fun but is also physically active each day.
Snack and Activity Schedule
Every month we will develop a snack and activity schedule of what we are up to each day so that you can prepare your child appropriately. We always do the activity listed below rain or shine (although we might modify it slightly due to uncooperative weather).
On non-instructional days, summer holidays, winter holidays and March break, care is currently not provided. In addition, the Quest Kids program is closed on the statutory holidays listed here: Thanksgiving Day, Remembrance Day, Family Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, and Victoria Day.
School dismissal – 6pm Fees include a healthy snack each day.
• 5 days per week $425 per month
• 4 days per week $352 per month
• 3 days per week $264 per month
• 2 days per week $176 per month
• 1 day per week $88 per month

Quest Kids is lucky enough to have several amazing and worldly Quest University Canada students who enjoy working with children. We will have Quest students working alongside our Childcare Coordinator who manages the day to day operations. Please check back here to see full bios and meet our team!
