Skip-a-Long Child Development Services believes every child can thrive if given the chance to learn and grow with high quality early care and education.
Children succeed when they have high quality classrooms, energetic and encouraging teachers, and a supportive school "family" who makes sure all children have the opportunity to be their best, every day. Skip-a-Long Child Development Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making sure all children are prepared for school and all families are able to be successful in our community. Skip-a-Long centers have caring, credentialed teaching staff who help children explore their world through unique classroom experiences and learning tools.
Skip-a-Long is the first early care and education center in Illinois to support children through Therapeutic Child Care - on-site licensed Mental Health Therapists lead regular activities in the classrooms that promote social-emotional development and good mental health with both staff and children, and are available to help individual children who might be struggling to manage emotions or understand experiences they've had.
All Skip-a-Long centers are Nationally Accredited and highly rated for quality - Five Star in Iowa (highest rating available) and Gold Circle of Quality in Illinois (highest rating available).
Skip-a-Long works with Illinois and Iowa Child Care Assistance Programs for financial aid to make sure high quality early care and education is affordable for all families.
At Skip-a-Long, your child gets the care, education, and support needed to be successful in school and in life. Contact us today to see how you can join our Skip-a-Long family!
