We are a licensed; non-profit 501(c)3 child-care organization in Peterborough, NH located adjacent to the Peterborough Elementary School. All children are welcome. We meet SKIP kids at the Peterborough Elementary School and walk them down to our facility. For middle schoolers transportation is readily available from the South Meadow School. At SKIP our staff works hard to empower your children with the ability to make good decisions and to provide an environment that supports and celebrates their unique qualities as individuals. We offer before school care for kindergarten through fourth grade and after school care through eighth grade. We are also offering this year, a new play based program for children age 3,4 and 5 called "Little Skippers". It will run from noon to three, with extended day care available. Our focus will be learning while we play and helping children progress along the continuum from toddlerhood to kindergarten readiness.
Our programs includes breakfast, snacks and supervised homework time. A variety of rotating club activities give children an opportunity to participate in games, sports, arts & crafts, science & nature projects, cooking, music, drama and creative play. Each week, after homework is done, three activities are offered. One is held outdoors (or in the gym) and focuses on games and sports. Another provides creative outlets in arts & crafts and the third is based on a theme or activity chosen to meet the special interests of the children currently in attendance.
Our partnership with Franklin Pierce University, America Reads and Big Brothers/Big Sisters increases opportunities for individual attention.
SKIP welcomes a diverse student body from all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds with a wide variety of academic abilities and potential.

Some of the awesome projects we hope to do during the break and after involve LIDS from things like margarine tubs and soda bottles. We would greatly appreciate donations of these, in as many colors as you can come up with. Look for our finished garden art eventually!
