Before & After School
Morning Program: Our morning school program is open to grades K-4. Upon arrival, children are offered a healthy breakfast and involve themselves in a number of activities. Children are then escorted up to the Peterborough Elementary School. Kindergartners are escorted directly to their classrooms by a teacher. We can accommodate Middle School children on delayed opening days.
Our after school program is open to grades K-8.

Summer Session and No School Weeks
Summer Session at SKIP begins just after school ends. Sign-up is available in late Spring when you can download our Summer registration packet. It contains all the details!
Every week during the summer session, (and February and April vacation) has a theme from Gardening to Astronomy to Field Games etc. And also every week we have field trips where we'll walk to local attractions or visit Cunningham Pond.
We believe that children are our future!
Our program will reflect all those beliefs, as we provide theme based learning that will enhance natural curiosity, problem solving, critical thinking skills, and will help foster respect of self and others, embrace diversity, and enhance lifelong learning.
We will focus on the 5 main areas of development including: Cognitive development, Gross Motor Development, Fine Motor Development, Social and Emotional Development, and Sensory Development.
Our program will provide freedom for children to have spontaneous play and interaction where they make discoveries, explore, solve problems, and develop social skills. In addition, structured, teacher-directed activities will teach children to focus attention, and function in a group, fostering success and self esteem.
