Each day students in Kids Quest have designated time for academic work. Students receive guidance for homework assignments while those without school work are involved in enrichment activities.
Fit'N'Fun and HOST This spring, two Kids Quest sites are partnering with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to implement a Healthy Out-of-School Time program (HOST). Through direct support, HOST staff assist each site in assessing, setting goals, and achieving those goals in relation to national Health Education and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards. We're very excited to be bringing this program to all of our Kids Quest sites in the fall of 2015 to help increase health education and physical activity.
Kids Quest after school leaders implement a unique and interactive physical fitness and healthy living curriculum called "Fit'N'Fun". Developed specifically to teach children how to make healthier lifestyle choices, Fit'N'Fun is just as fun as it is educational. This 10 week, active curriculum is implemented in the fall and spring semesters.
Child & Adult Care Food Program and After School Snacks
Kids Quest also offers a snack each day to students in the after school program. We strive to provide students with a healthy option 2-3 days per week including fresh fruits and vegetables. All snacks adhere to the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) guidelines. For more information on the Child & Adult Care Food Program : http://www.kn-eat.org/cacfp/cacfp_menus/cacfp_home.htm
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)
Each Kids Quest before and after school program is dedicated to incorporating STEM into their weekly activities. In cooperation with Kansas Enrichment Network, Kid Quest staff is working to increase the number of STEM related activities they do on a weekly basis, enhance the quality of these experiences, and encourage critical thinking in students.
Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE)
Each Kids Quest before and after school program is licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
