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. It also manages the Home Child Care Network for private home child care facilities throughout the Illinois and Iowa Quad Cities, as well as in Peoria.

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.

We have a strong support network, such as on-site social workers, to provide assistance to those families that require their services for billing, family assistance, and determining fee subsidy eligibility. 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.
