G’day! My name is Karen Nelson. I was born and raised in Australia. I met my American husband 10 years ago and I packed up my life, my 2 girls and moved to the States. He is in the Military, so we have moved around quite a bit. We can now call South Carolina home, as he is retiring after 20 years of service!!

Before joining The Quest Zone, I worked in the childcare program at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia. I never thought of childcare for a career. Now, looking after all these wonderful kids, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I put everything I have into creating a warm, caring, fun environment that my children enjoy coming to daily. I change and adapt to the needs of all my children as they get older or as new ones enroll. They are and always will be my priority.

I look forward to welcoming you into the Quest Zone family here at Ridge Spring-Monetta Elementary School.


I’ve seen my children grow socially and academically since they’ve started at The Quest Zone, and I love knowing they’re being cared for and nurtured until I get off work. We’ve tried other after school programs, and without a doubt I know the Quest Zone is the absolute best place for our babies to be

I have been blown away with the professionalism, knowledge and dedication shown by all staff. My daughter is learning to play games and loves the creative time they get. They help her with her assignments too, which really helps me out!

My name is Caylah and I go to The Quest Zone. I like the people and the teachers here. They take care of me and make sure I’m okay. They feed me, play with me, and love me. I am super happy that I go to The Quest Zone.
