Recognizing a growing need in our community, Skip-a-Long Child Development Services has made an investment in our children and will be expanding our Moline child care center to include two additional classrooms!

Why is the center adding more classrooms?

These two classrooms will serve 31 children, ages 18 months to 35 months (two + years) old. The Moline Skip-a-Long child care center has noticed a significant increase in the need for care of this age group, and has made this investment as part of the program’s mission to make sure ALL children in the Quad Cities area are well-cared for early on and prepared for school. Skip-a-Long will be breaking ground on this project next week and plans to open the additional classrooms to families currently on our waiting list as early as October of 2014!

What does this expansion mean for our community?

Due to the importance and urgency of this need, Skip-a-Long is investing funds to support the center’s expansion. This expansion will create additional jobs, allowing more of our community members to work full-time in the field of early care and education. This expansion also means that more families in our community will have access to a high-quality child care center. More children will have stability and consistency of care, and will learn and grow in an early education environment that will prepare them for success in school and in life!

Please join us for a ground-breaking ceremony where we will celebrate this expansion and discuss more details of the center’s plans over the next year. Opportunities for photos of our center’s children helping to start the construction will be available. Our Chief Executive Officer – Marcy Mendenhall, our Communications Manager – Liz Strader, and management staff will be available for comments.

WHAT: Ground-breaking ceremony for Moline Skip-a-Long expansion!

WHERE: Skip-a-Long Child Development Services – 4800 60th St., Moline, IL

WHEN: Monday, July 28th, 10:00am
