Our teachers will lead your child on an exploration of STEM or art, discovering new and exciting concepts along the way! Move over summer school, MVNU Summer Quests are here!

Cost: $35 per quest

Space is limited to 20 participants per quest session.

Families with children who attend the Esther Jetter Preschool are permitted to register for Journey to the Jungle, Crazy Camp Out, Blast-Off to Kindergarten I, and Blast-Off to Kindergarten II before registration is opened to the public. We encourage families interested in these quests to register as soon as possible when public registration opens. Children placed on a waiting list will be moved into the quest as space becomes available according to the initial registration timestamp.

Age groups are determined by the preschool class your child will be entering in fall of 2017. If your child is going to participate in a 3-year-old or 4-year-old class, please enroll your child in one or both of our quests for ages 3–4. If your child will be entering kindergarten in fall of 2017, please enroll your child in one or both of our Blast off to Kindergarten sessions.

The location of each quest is listed in the descriptions. We have developed a partnership with the Knox County Career Center and one of our quests for children ages 3-4 will be held next door at the KCCC campus. The rest of the quests will be held at MVNU in the Clarence and Jennie Moore building.
