Questfield Summer School is a fun educational format, based on books, designed to host children aged 1.2-12, a varied program that ensures that all its participants are learning and enjoying a 360 degrees concept of alternative education, focusing at the same time on social, cognitive and physical development of the children.
SUMMER SCHOOL CONCEPT
The concept of Questfield Summer School is dynamic, organic, balanced, diverse, personalized and based on a mixture of 3 basic elements: Sports, Arts and Structured play. This international concept is based on the routines of mastery and collaboration, two key ingredients of life skills.
The children are engaged in a series of activities: swimming, tennis, art, dance and horseback riding, being constantly motivated to get involved in different projects within the weekly book activities. In addition to that, one student’s schedule can be customized with outings, expeditions and visits that nurture the children’s curiosity and their need to experiment (museums, farms, field trips, etc).
LOVE OF LEARNING
The entire teaching team here, at Questfield Summer School, is fluent in English, open, highly motivated and creative, but most of all dedicated to their profession. Since teachers love teaching, they teach children to love learning.
Our summer programme is designed around the mastery paradigm and rewards risk-taking, encouraging children to try things out, make mistakes and learn from accidents or failed experiments. Our summer programme discourages students to place themselves in an endless competition with others.
Questfield Summer School is mastery-oriented, being linked to high levels of motivation and engagement and promoting learning for learning’s sake whereas school programs known as “performance oriented” have been tied to greater anxiety and less resilience in the face of failure.
ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION FOR ALL
Our Summer School is open to everyone, interns or externs, Romanian or of other nationality, little or big. Summer School participants come back every year, bringing their friends, little brothers and sisters, not only to the next Summer School, but also to other school events during the academic year.
