About the Provider

Description: Skip-a-Long Child Development Services was founded in East Moline in 1970 as Skip-a-Long Day Care, a non-profit organization by local citizens concerned about the lack of quality child care available to the children from families of low economic means. This put disadvantaged children at risk for academic failure and continued the cycle of poverty as working parents who were unable to afford quality, safe care for their children would not make reliable and focused employees.

Skip-a-Long's founders recognized the role high quality child care plays in helping people rise out of poverty by giving a hand up to both children and parents in hopes that they both will succeed.

Today, Skip-a-Long Child Development Services is comprised of three campuses, in two states. We also manage the Home Child Care Network, which works with home child care providers in the Illinois Quad Cities and Peoria areas and helps families needing child care during nontraditional hours. See The Home Child Care Network for more details!

Skip-a-Long Child Development Services has evolved over the years from an agency whose main focus was to provide quality child care to the working poor, to one where quality child care is provided to all children, regardless of financial means. We offer a sliding fee scale and work with IDHS and United Way to ensure that high-quality child care is affordable and accessible to everyone in the Quad Cities area, and that all children have the opportunity at our centers to learn from our professional staff and be prepared for success in school and in life!

We have a strong support network of agencies in the community to provide assistance to those families that require their services for family assistance, crisis services, and financial assistance for child care. Our child care structure surpasses most quality child care centers in the activities, curriculum, and teacher quality that we offer to our parents and their children.

Our multiple sites serve a broad range of families, and Skip-a-Long's expansion has been fueled by the needs of the community. We will continue to grow and diversify as the child care needs of families in our communities continue to change.

Skip-a-Long is a program of our parent agency, Skip-a-Long Family and Community Services, and you can learn more about our other wonderful programs by visiting our agency's website!
