Welcome to School Kids in Peterborough 

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. 

Our program 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 activies 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. 

School Kids in Peterborough is about working, playing and having fun together. We would love to include your child in our enriching program while we nurture self-esteem and build positive values!
