Meet The Team
As parents ourselves we know how important it is to get to know the people who will be spending time with your kids! Here is a bit about us, our values and experience working with kids of all ages. Above all else Stefanie, Stephen and Angie adore working with children and are passionate about constantly pursuing knowledge and offering research based care. We look forward to getting to know you!
Stefanie & Stephen opened Keiki Trails licensed Family Child Care in 2020. The center focused on play based learning and spending as much time as possible outside everyday, no matter the weather.
Angie registered her children for the first ever cohort and our philosophies quickly aligned. Through our education, work experience and parenting we have noticed: children are happier, more creative, adventurous, and curious in nature. Incorporating traditional school-based learning into outdoor experiences showed us that, our kids were learning and retaining more knowledge playing and exploring outside. Furthermore, research supports this type of learning and play.
As uninvited settlers we are honoured to live on the lands of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples. We continue to build our outdoor community based program, we will connect with nature and reflect on and learn from Indigenous values. QuestCoast Kids is the culmination of our diverse education, experience running licensed daycare, working for non-profits, and creating and running children and teen programming, and our passion for creating space for our children to grow to be positive members of our outdoor community.
