Preschool Summer Quest

Preschool Summer Quest 2021

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: $45 per quest

Space is limited to 18 participants per quest session.

Families with children who attend the Esther Jetter Preschool are permitted to register for Polar Quest, Safari Quest, and Blast-Off to Kindergarten 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 2021. 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 2021, please enroll your child in our Blast off to Kindergarten quest.
