The Unschooling Project is our latest endeavour in self-directed education. It seamlessly blends the best global practices of self-directed learning, with the best and familiar aspects of learning in India. Truly, a revolutionary way of learning, the Unschooling Project seeks to help every child learn what they want to and love, and thereby discover new interests, skills and their best selves. Our learners design their own learning journeys and it is ethereal to watch children make informed decisions. Since it is customised, many different kinds of learners learn a variety of things and are not restricted by a common curriculum. By removing the invisible hierarchy that veils the current schooling systems, the Unschooling Project helps children learn beyond textbooks, and distinct subject boundaries. This opens up a world of possibilities! By integrating technology into everything we do, children understand the impact of this all powerful advancement and use it to enrich their learning experience — be it goal setting, documenting or presentation skills; they are empowered to do it all.
The Unschooling Project is for children aged 6-18, from 10AM to 4PM
The Learning Community at Quest is a space for learning and fun.

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 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. Everyday, we intend to take our journey to the next level — By constantly learning and keeping up with the world around us, we are able to design our projects to keep them relevant and enriching. We’re striving to make self-directed learning accessible to every learner curious to explore it and 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.
Quest enables learning through other specially curated programmes as well.
Workshops are specially curated learning sessions conducted by experts. These include a wide range of interest areas and cater to different age groups as well.
Events at Quest are fun, inclusive, curated for different age groups and cater to a variety of interests and abilities.
If you are not looking for a full day programme, you can always help your child experience Quest, after school. The Individualised Engagement Programme (IEP) is for children aged 4-12 where they can hone skills that complement what they learn at school. Each child learns differently, and thus our programme is designed to cater to many different kinds of learners.
