The Learning Community at Quest is an inclusive space dedicated to discovery, creativity and fun; for learners of all kinds, age groups and abilities.
The Learning Community at Quest, Palavakkam
Nestled in a quiet neighbourhood by the sea, Quest provides a nourishing environment for every learner to explore, engage and express. Our space is malleable and bountiful with resources, which means you can use it as a studio, a maker space or a resource centre.
Our mission is to create a community of learners, with many different kinds of learners and have spirited discussions about learning itself! We were recently recognised by The Alliance for Self Directed Education, for our work in the field of self directed education. Becoming a part of a global network of Self Directed Education institutions for us means an emphatic statement of who we are and all that we do everyday to build a truly progressive learning space. With our ambitious plan titled Goal 2021, we intend to take our journey to the next level –
~ Quest will be full time learning space for self directed learners
~ Have an extensive network of individuals and institutions that cater to different kinds of learners
~ Make self-directed learning accessible to every learner curious to explore it
This is a significant step for us, as we envision a full day learning space which caters to various kinds of learners. As we work towards that goal, it becomes vital for us to constantly have conversations with every one of you and to ensure that every learner who comes to Quest is able to take away some new knowledge that they’ve gained by doing, watching, reading, listening or playing.
The Learning Community at Quest is a space for learning and fun. We believe in self-directed learning, a truly revolutionary approach to learning where the learner takes charge of their own learning journey, with or without the assistance of others, by identifying their learning goals, choosing their mode of learning and evaluating their own performance and outcomes as well. Children are naturally curious, and given the freedom, they happily assume the role of designing their own learning journeys. Self-directed learning is not a lack of adult involvement, it is simply a lack of adult control. The freedom to learn whatever one desires, without judgement, compulsion or an end goal dictated by others is an utterly illuminating way of learning. We provide the perfect environment for children to be the best learners they can be.
Our Individualised Engagement Programme (IEP) is an after-school programme for children aged 4-12. It beautifully reflects our philosophy of self-directed learning. Each child learns differently, and thus our programme is designed to cater to many different kinds of learners.
The IEP is truly individualised as children can completely design their own learning path in their chosen field of interest. Our passionate facilitators help them understand their interests, evaluate their needs and commit to particular interests or activities, and help them decide how far ahead they would like to learn a particular interest. These conversations help kids understand the depths of all the interests we offer, and they can choose activities they would like to pursue under each interest, creating a customised individualised learning plan for themselves.
